Officials in Parsippany, New Jersey arrested the township’s largest drug dealer based on a search and seizure of a large amount of drugs and paraphernalia inside his home. The bust resulted from a number of anonymous tips and other evidence that arose over several investigations in the preceding weeks. The dealer was found in his home last Friday with cocaine, marijuana and MDMA – also known as “Molly” – totaling an $87,000 value on the street. The community relations officer involved in the drug arrest noted that the total quantity seized included eight pounds of marijuana, 11 grams of cocaine, 11.5 ounces of MDMA powder, 15 syringes and packaging supplies normally used for drug distribution.
The drug dealer was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of MDMA with intent to distribute, and intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance in a school zone. He is currently being held at the Morris County Correctional Facility for $175,000 bail. It is unclear whether the dealer is a drug user himself, but by buying and distributing drugs he put the community on the whole in danger. Drug use and addiction can lead to tragic consequences including violence, accidental overdose and death.
