An Elmwood Park man was recently arrested for his alleged role in a major drug distribution operation in Morris County, NJ.
The suspect is a 23-year-old man who lives in Elmwood Park, NJ. According to authorities, the suspect served as the main distributor for a drug distribution network that operated across New Jersey, including Morris County, Bergen County, Passaic County, Sussex County, and Warren County.
At the beginning of this year, law enforcement officials got reports of illegal narcotics distribution in these counties. Detectives with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office subsequently opened an investigation into the alleged drug operation. The investigation was exhaustive and involved wiretaps to intercept communications between the suspect and other people allegedly involved in the drug distribution network.
Authorities believe that the suspect and his co-conspirators sold heroin and crack cocaine in Elmwood Park, where the suspect resided, and in other parts of NJ. At least 18 individuals have been placed under arrest for their alleged roles in the drug operation.
