SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - The South Brunswick Police Department arrested a 33-year-old North Brunswick man at the Route One McDonald's on June 1. James Tyler was arrested by officers with 94 folds of what was suspected to be heroin according to an announcement by South Brunswick Police Chief Raymond Hayducka on Monday.
SBPD officers responded to a call about a disorderly male inside the fast food restaurant. Officer Jason Stonkus was first on the scene and found Tyler seated in a booth yelling and waving his arms. Stonkus contacted the Kendall Park First Aid Squad because Tyler was sweating and breathing heavily in addition to acting erratically. After first responders determined Tyler did not require additional medical attention, officers continued to attempt to question him.
Eventually, Tyler needed to be restrained by officers when he stood up with his fists clenched. Officer Scott Bucca was able to restrain Tyler. A subsequent search discovered suspected pockets of herion in Tyler's short pockets and backpack. In all, he was found to be in possession of 94 folds of what the officers suspected to be heroin.
Currently, Tyler is being housed in the Middlesex County Adult Correctional Center after being arrested and charged with being in possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Tyler is awaiting his first court appearance.
