ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- A series of raids turned up more than a quarter-pound of marijuana, as well as materials for producing counterfeit credit cards, leading to the arrests of three Englewood men.
Squadrons of officers -- including a Bergen County Sheriff's SWAT Team unit -- hit a quartet of residences yesterday:
• 443 Liberty Road, Englewood;• 248 West Forest Avenue, Apt. 4, Englewood;• 58 E. Forest Avenue, 2nd Floor, Teaneck;• 20 West Englewood Avenue, 2nd Floor, Teaneck.
Arrested were Peter Earle, 25, who lives at the West Forest Avenue address, and Leland Robinson Jr., 38, and 30-year-old Antonio Jordan, both of Liberty Road.
All three were released without bail pending arraignments this Monday, Oct. 5.
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said Earle was dealing drugs out of the residences and had the quarter-pound of pot in one of his vehicles, which was seized.
Besides the marijuana, police found crack cocaine, a credit card embosser and several bogus credit cards, Molinelli said.
Earle was charged with possession with the intent to distribute the pot.
Robinson and Jordan were charged with possession of the crack and a small amount of marijuana.
Molinelli thanked Sheriff Michael Saudino's K9 Unit, Regional SWAT Team and Quality of Life Task Force, as well as Dumont, Tenafly, Cresskill, New Milford, Englewood and Teaneck police for their participation in the investigation and arrests, headed by his own Narcotic Task Force.
