Drug arrests during concerts at the PNC Arts center are not uncommon at all. Most drug arrests in Holmdel are for marijuana possession and prescription pills. Cocaine and Heroin arrests in Holmdel occur with less frequency.

Drug arrests in Holmdel usually arise in one of two ways. One is by the police stopping your car for a moving violation and searching your car. The other is from street encounters with police. In Holmdel, most of these occur at the arts center. Police may also obtain a warrant to search your home. This is relatively uncommon in Holmdel.

Holmdel is a upper class township in eastern Monmouth County. If you are charged with possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia in Holmdel, your case will be handled in the Holmdel Municipal Court. The Holmdel Municipal Court is located at 4 Crawfords Corner Road, Holmdel, NJ 07733. If you are charged with either of these offenses, you will likely be processed by the Holmdel or New Jersey State Trooper and released on a summons.

Your summons or complaint will have a date to appear toward the bottom of the paper. This will be the day of your arraignment. At your arraignment, the judge will read the charges to you and advise you of your rights. At this first appearance, you have the right to remain silent and should not make any statements other than “not-guilty.” All Holmdel juvenile charges will be sent to the Monmouth County Superior Court.

If you retain a lawyer before your arraignment in municipal court, your appearance can be waived. Retaining an attorney is the first step in fighting your Holmdel CDS charge. Your attorney will enter a not-guilty plea for you, waive your arraignment, and request all discovery in your case.

You and your attorney should review the evidence in your case together. The evidence will likely include an arrest report, incident report, video, and the results of the lab testing of any drugs that were found. The lab report usually comes much later. The specimens from each local police department in New Jersey are sent to a few very busy state police labs.

The state police laboratory will test the CDS to determine what, exactly it is and how much it weights. It is usually advisable to object to the lab certificate. If your attorney does not object to the entry of the laboratory report within a certain amount of time, it may be automatically admissible at trial.

If you object to the lab report, the state may be forced to present the chemist who conducted the testing for cross-examination. This will result in a Rule 104 hearing, where your defense attorney can cross-examine the chemist on issues including the testing procedure, the accuracy of that testing and the reliability on any machines or formulas used.
