Two Arrested for Marijuana Possession and Distribution on Maple Street

August 19, 2013 at 2:24 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - On Aug. 12, Craig Henderson, 45, of New York, and Devon Abu Gray, 19, of West Orange, were arrested for possession and distrubtion of marijuana on Maple Street in the Lourdes Section of town.

The Special Investigations Unit had received several complaints from neighbors in July and August regarding the distribution of narcotics by Gray, a resident of Maple Street. On Aug. 12 at approximately 11:45, police surveillance observed a blue Toyota Camry facing west on Maple Street near Mississippi Avenue. The vehicle was occupied by a black male later identified as Henderson. Police then observed Gray exit his residence on Maple Street and engage in what appeared to be a hand-to-hand transaction with Henderson. Once Gray re-entered his residence and Henderson traveled west on Maple, police performed a motor vehicle stop.

According to police, Henderson appeared nervous and police detected the odor of marijuana in the interior compartment of the vehicle. He admitted to police, "I have one bag; I bought it from Abu." He was placed under arrest and the vehicle searched.  Police also found a vanilla cigar in Henderson's pocket. These are commonly used to smoke marijuana by unrolling the cigar, emptying out the tobacco, and re-rolling it with marijuana.
