A man serving time at the Morris County Jail in Morristown was allegedly caught with prescription drugs and heroin inside his cell.
The suspect is a 30-year-old man who previously resided in the Towaco area of Montville in Morris County, NJ. He is currently behind bars at the Morris County Correctional Facility.
When corrections officers at the jail searched the suspect’s cell, they reportedly came across 16 folds of heroin and six Suboxone tablets. According to authorities, the suspect hid the drugs in a footlocker.
The suspect was in the jail for previously failing to meet the requirements of a probationary sentence imposed for an earlier drug offense charge. The suspect was allowed to enter Drug Court and initially avoid jail.
The suspect has been charged with possession of heroin and illegal possession of Suboxone in connection with the reported discovery of the drugs in his cell.
