PATERSON, NJ - Three loaded weapons were taken off Paterson street Thursday as members of the Paterson Police Department disrupted a drug operation at 181 Marion Street.
According to Public Safety Director Jerry Speziale, an investigation was launched earlier this month following numerous complaints from area residents who reported that buyers were coming to the location at all times of day and night to purchase narcotics.
In addition to the weapons, police found 284 glassines of heroin, 13 bags of marijuana, 218 THC cartridges, 41 pre-rolled marijuana cigars, and an additional 1,855 grams of marijuana. $3,768 in U.S. cash was also seized as suspected proceeds from fur sales.
