Authorities recently seized a small amount of “Beast Mode” heroin after police responded to a report of a fight on a highway in Hanover Township, NJ.
A short time before 11:00 a.m., NJ State Police got a call about a fight in progress near mile marker 2.1 on Route 24 West in Hanover, New Jersey. A state trooper went to the scene, where she did not see a physical altercation. However, the New Jersey State trooper saw the aftermath of a car crash.
One of the motorists had already left the scene of the minor fender-bender because the damage to his car was not significant. The driver of the other car, a 1999 Honda Accord, remained at the scene of the accident.
While the NJ State trooper talked to the motorist, she noticed a small amount of heroin inside his car. A later search of the vehicle allegedly led to the discovery of heroin stamped with a “Beast Mode” label.
The suspect, a 62-year-old man from Morristown, NJ, was subsequently placed under arrest and taken to Netcong police headquarters. He faces several drug crime charges, including heroin possession and possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in a motor vehicle.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was released on his own recognizance. He will have to appear in Morris County Superior Court, located in Morristown NJ, at a later date in order to answer the very serious criminal charges.
