2 people charged after police find heroin in motel room

On Feb. 25, police in New Jersey seized 1,091 individual bags of heroin from a motel room occupied by a 44-year-old man. The drug bust concluded a month-long investigation into narcotics sales that were believed to be going on at the Travel Inn motel in Vineland. The Vineland Police Department's Street Crimes Unit had reportedly received information suggesting that the accused man was selling heroin from his motel room on East Landis Avenue.

After searching the man's motel room and his car, police officers seized heroin, drug paraphernalia and $2,300 in cash, according to reports. The man is now facing charges for possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of heroin and possession of heroin with intent to distribute. He was held on $150,000 bail at the Cumberland County Jail.

A 27-year-old woman was also taken into custody because of the search and seizure. She was reported to be a resident of East Landis Avenue as well. Police handed the accused woman one charge for possession of a hypodermic syringe before releasing her on her own recognizance. It is unclear where police obtained the information that led them to conduct an investigation at the motel.

A person charged for drug crimes after an incident like this one might want to talk with a criminal defense attorney about some defense strategies. An attorney might look into details about the case such as whether the defendant's name is listed as the motel room occupant. Any mistakes on the search warrant that police used could also help the defendant's chances of having their charges dropped.
