Morris County Park police officers have already arrested several people on outstanding arrest warrants and drug possession charges in December.
Two Morris County Park patrol cops were roaming Hedden County Park in Mine Hill when they reportedly noticed a suspect in the process of committing a municipal ordinance violation. In NJ, a municipal ordinance violation is not a criminal offense but can still result in penalties that include heavy fines.
According to law enforcement, the suspect in Mine Hill NJ had an arrest warrant that had been issued by the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office. The Morris County Park cops arrested the suspect and later handed him over to Bergen County authorities.
The suspect, a 32-year-old resident of Boca Raton, Florida was processed and then sent to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey.
Morris County police arrested another suspect this month while conducting a traffic stop in Randolph, NJ. A Morris County Park cop reportedly spotted the suspect committing a traffic offense. The police officer ran a check on the suspect, a 59-year-old woman from Randolph, and discovered that she had an active arrest warrant out of Mine Hill, NJ. She was placed under arrest and handed over to Wharton NJ police.
Morris County Park cops also arrested a Boonton man accused of possessing a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) as he walked in Hedden County Park in Randolph, NJ.
The police officers saw the 19-year-old suspect acting suspicious while talking to another person in the park. Police investigated and allegedly discovered the suspect carrying an illegal narcotic. The suspect was arrested and charged with a drug crime.
