Manalapan Teen Arrested for Drug Possession


by in Drug Defense

For years, authorities in Manalapan Township have tried to curb the trafficking of illegal drugs in Manalapan. The western Monmouth County town has, unfortunately, seen a spike in drug use and abuse among teens in the last few years. Much of this is due to the increased popularity of pain killers and other pill by young people.

Last week, a 19-year-old from Manalapan was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a weapon in Manalapan. This arrest, like many others, was made after a routine motor vehicle stop for a traffic violation.

It started after Patrolman Daniel Carey stopped a white Daewoo sedan on Union Hill Road around on the evening of March 9. The officer later determined that the passenger of the vehicle was in possession of ecstasy pills several plastic baggies. The teen was also in possession of a home made “lock in a sock.” The device was basically a metal pipe inside sock, commonly used as a weapon in jails.

The young man will face an arraignment in the Manalapan Municipal Court sometime in the coming weeks.
