TENAFLY, N.J. -- A routine overnight traffic stop Friday in Tenafly produced 118 folds of heroin, 43 vials of crack, 55 variously sized bags of pot and the arrests of four Newark men.
Officer Brad Adams stopped the 1993 Chevy Cavalier -- which had faulty lights and an expired inspection sticker -- as it headed east on East Clinton Avenue near Serpentine Road at 12:42 a.m., Detective Capt. Michael deMoncada said.
Both the driver, Eric D. Smith, and his passenger, Kasib K. Jones -- both 21, from Newark -- had outstanding traffic warrants out of Newark, he said.
Adams also noticed marijuana packed in zip-locking bags on the floor and requested backup, the captain said.
Officers Joseph Grieco, Patrick Baumuller, and Vincent Cooper arrived soon after.
Besides the drugs, the officers collected $474 in cash and a digital scale, deMoncada said.
They charged two other passengers -- Kyree Z. Bogan, 21, and Quawan N. Edwards, 20, with having the drugs for sale.
A judge later ordered Edwards held on $50,000 bail, and Bogan $10,000, in the Bergen County Jail. Smith and Jones were released on summonses.
