Parsippany New Jersey Drug Crime Attorneys

Parsippany NJ Drug Crime LawyersParsippany NJ police recently arrested two men accused of illegally selling prescription drugs and synthetic drugs at an adult video store.

The suspects, a Parsippany man and a Livingston man, have been accused of conspiring to sell drugs to customers of an adult video store located on Route 46 in Parsippany, New Jersey. The Parsippany man reportedly owns the store, while the Livingston man is believed to be a store employee.

The Parsippany Police Department started an investigation into the suspects after getting multiple tips that synthetic drugs were being sold at the video store. Police eventually obtained and executed a search warrant, allegedly turning up more than 100 packages of synthetic drugs that included imitation Xanax and nail polish removers being marketed as inhalants.

The two suspects have been charged with a number of very serious drug crimes, including conspiracy to distribute imitation controlled dangerous substances (CDS), conspiracy to distribute prescription drugs, and conspiracy to distribute toxic chemicals.

After being arrested and processed, the suspects were transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility in Morristown, NJ. The Livingston posted $150,000 bail and secured his release, while the Parsippany suspect remained held at the jail in lieu of $125,000 bail.

Morris County Heroin Trafficking ChargesLaw enforcement recently arrested five people, including a Parsippany man, accused of running a heroin trafficking operation throughout NJ and NYC.

According to authorities, the drug distribution network sold illegal drugs in New Jersey and New York from June 2015 to May 2016. The suspects allegedly employed couriers who would deliver heroin to “mid-level” drug dealers, with those dealers then handing off the narcotics to “street-level” dealers. The final step in the process was selling the heroin to drug addicts.

The NJ part of the illegal drug operation reportedly focused on Morris County areas, while the NY dealers targeted their sales in Manhattan and the Bronx.

Among the suspects are a 25-year-old Parsippany NJ man, a 27-year-old Paterson man, a 32-year-old Paterson NJ man, a 26-year-old Bronx man, and a 28-year-old man from Stony Point, New York.

All five suspects face criminal charges for conspiracy to distribute a kilogram or more of heroin.

The suspects have been charged at the federal level, not the state level, because the heroin distribution ring allegedly crossed state lines and affected interstate commerce.

The suspects recently appeared in U.S. District Court in Newark NJ for pretrial proceedings.

Several other suspects were previously arrested, and charged, for their alleged roles in the drug distribution network.

If any of the suspects are ultimately convicted of drug distribution, they could be sentenced to life imprisonment in a federal penitentiary, in addition to being fined as much as $10 million.
