Bergen County men facing drugs, weapons allegations

A Teaneck man is in custody on drug trafficking charges and his neighbor is wanted by police on suspicions of weapons offenses, Bergen County law enforcement officials said yesterday.

The 28-year-old man in Bergen County Jail in Hackensack faces allegations that he was distributing cocaine and marijuana.

He remains in jail in lieu of posting a $50,000 bond, according to a media report.

His neighbor, 31 years old, has arrest warrants out in his name, charging him with violating state gun laws. His bail will be set at $100,000, officials said.

The men became the focus of an investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office earlier this month after the office received information that the pair was dealing drugs, officials said.

The county prosecutor's office said undercover police officers purchased crack cocaine and marijuana from both of the men.

Agents from the prosecutor's office then joined Teaneck police officers in the investigation of the 28-year-old, who was apparently a suspect in a Teaneck shooting this past weekend.

In that incident, he allegedly fired a shot into an automobile, though police say they don't know if anyone was in the vehicle or anyone was injured.

After the shooting, a bullet fragment was found and examined, and officials then obtained a search warrant for the homes of the two men.

At the home of the 28-year-old, officials said they found handgun ammunition.

At the home of the other man, 31, police said they found and seized marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a sawed-off shotgun, a 9mm semiautomatic handgun and a .25 caliber handgun, along with ammunition.
