MILLTOWN, NJ - Yesterday, a routine traffic stop during the 2016 Distracted Driver Campaign yielded a drug seizure.
"Detail Patrol Supervisor, Sergeant B. Knelle stopped a vehicle after observing a violation, and subsequently arrested the driver for possession of a controlled dangerous substance," Lieutenant Christopher Johnson explained via email.
Daniel Kloskowski of Pueblo West, Colorado, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute, possession of controlled dangerous substances with the intent to distribute in a park/public building zone, possession of paraphernalia, possession of controlled dangerous substances within a motor vehicle and using a cell phone while driving.
