Monday nights don't usually bring big arrests, especially in February.
Paramus Officers Joseph Cullen and Ryan Hayo, however, decided to prove
this theory wrong.
Officers Cullen and Hayo were patrolling Route 4 in the area of Spring
Valley Road on Monday at a few minutes before midnight when they
observed the driver of a 2005 Nissan Maxima commit several motor vehicle
Ultimately, they stopped the car and began interviewing the driver, a
resident of Jersey City. The driver was unable to locate the
registration. As they continued speaking with him, the driver
suddenly slammed the car into drive and fled from the stop.
Officers Cullen and Hayo immediately gave chase. By this time,
other officers were present and assisting. During the pursuit, the
driver was observed throwing an object out of the car window. He
eventually pulled over in Hackensack and was taken into custody.
Officers went back to retrieve what had been tossed from the car.
We can only imagine the smiles on the officers' faces when they
discovered that the driver had discarded 2,500 bags of heroin.
For the non-narcotics types, 25 bags of heroin would be an outstanding
arrest. 2,500 bags is a career arrest. The street value of
this amount is more than $25,000.00
The suspect was committed in default of $750,000 bail. He was
charged with Manufacturing CDS, Possession of CDS with Intent to
Distribute, Eluding, and numerous other motor vehicle offenses.
According to the
Cliffview Pilot, the suspect already has two convictions for
distribution of controlled dangerous substances.
This was just a great job all around.
