In a strange incident, Rockaway Township police arrested a landscaper for driving while intoxicated. The man was later found to have heroin and drug paraphernalia.
Police officers were dispatched after reports indicated that a landscaper was acting “suspiciously” while operating power equipment. When they arrived on the scene, the officers determined that 48-year-old Denville resident George Seeley was driving while intoxicated. The officers also found heroin and drug paraphernalia.
Mr. Seeley was charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), possession of heroin, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in a motor vehicle.
In New Jersey, possession of heroin is governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:35-10, which prohibits a person from knowingly possessing a controlled dangerous substance, including heroin. Possession of a small amount of heroin is classified as a third degree offense. Depending on the amount of heroin found on Mr. Seeley, he could be looking at up to five (5) years in New Jersey State Prison.
