2 men arrested on drug charges in New Jersey

Police handed drug charges to two men outside of a gas station in Wayne on Feb. 9. Both of the men were stopped for unrelated incidents, but they each received a drug charge for being under the influence.

The first incident took place when undercover detectives who were patrolling the Route 23 corridor noticed a 38-year-old man pull into the gas station. Detectives reportedly watched the man visit a restroom and then emerge showing physical signs that he was under the influence of narcotics. When detectives approached the man to ask if he was in need of medical attention, they allegedly determined that he was high on heroin. He received a charge for being under the influence of heroin, possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

While the first man was being detained, a 29-year-old man driving a sedan collided with an SUV just south of the gas station. When detectives interviewed him about the accident, they noticed he was unsteady on his feet. A drug recognition expert then administered a field sobriety test, and the man was charged for possession of narcotics and driving under the influence of narcotics. Both of the accused men were given court summonses and released from custody.

A person who is facing drug charges after an incident like this one may want to speak with a criminal defense lawyer. A lawyer may be able to help a defendant understand what their options are for building a defense or working out a plea deal. In some cases, a defendant may be able to avoid a prison sentence for drug charges by agreeing to visit a drug treatment program.
