Netcong Man Found With Heroin in Morris County Court, Says Sheriff

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, NJ - On Tuesday, May 30th, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office seized 19 bags of suspected heroin prior to it entering the Morris County Correctional Facility.

Thasseus Licata, 31, of Netcong, was taken into custody at the Morris County Superior Courthouse for a Violation of Probation.  Prior to placing Licata into a central holding area within the courthouse, a cursory search of the detainee conducted by Correction

Officer Matthew Dunbar revealed the suspected heroin hidden within Licata’s sock. Sheriff James M. Gannon said, “This lends truth to the opioid crisis we are currently faced with throughout Morris County and the rest of the country.  A find such as this may have prevented a possible overdose, and possibly another fatality within police custody.”
