Drug arrests in Trenton

A 22-year-old was arrested after law enforcement officers said they watched him take part in a drug deal in North Trenton, New Jersey State Police said.

The Morrisville man was reported to have in his possession a loaded firearm, heroin and marijuana, a police spokesperson said. He was charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute, as well as possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

He was also charged with possession of a handgun while committing a drug offense and possession of the drugs with intent to distribute within a park.

He was taken to the Mercer County Correction Center, where he was being held in lieu of a $150,000 cash bail.

In a similar, but unrelated arrest, a Trenton man, 21, and a Lawrence woman, 21, were recently accused of engaging in a drug transaction in the presence of police officers.

Police said they watched as a silver Jeep pulled up behind a black Ford Fusion on Carteret Avenue. A man got out of the Ford and allegedly gave a person in the Jeep a bad containing heroin and a bag containing Endocet (oxycodone) tablets.

Police said they believe the man became aware of police presence and threw the drugs under the Jeep. However, officers retrieved the bags and arrested both people.

Both were charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of prescription drugs, possession with intent to distribute, possession within 1,000 feet of a school and possession within 500 feet of a park.

These are all serious charges that could mean significant periods of incarceration for the defendants, if they're convicted. That makes their choice of criminal defense attorney to defend their rights and freedoms a crucial decision.
