October 19, 1994

Two New Jersey men were arrested on drug charges Sunday morning after Northern District officers stopped their car at Crain Highway and Fifth Avenue and found two plastic bags of a substance that field tested positive for marijuana, county police said.

Officers Keith Frendlich and Richard Herard stopped a gray 1987 Sterling 825SL after they saw it cross over a double yellow line as it traveled south on Crain Highway around 3 a.m. They stopped the car, and Officer Frendlich noticed the odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside the vehicle as he talked to the occupants, police said.

Officer Frendlich searched the car and found a pipe for smoking drugs in a blue bag on the back seat. He found a black bag in the trunk containing the marijuana, three packs of rolling papers, six small plastic bags and a box of 80 sandwich bags.

Police also seized $320 and the car, police said.

Herman Neely, Jr. and Jerome L. Watts, both 22 and from Red Bank, were charged with possession of marijuana. In addition, Mr. Watts was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and Mr. Neely was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

Erratic behavior brings drug charge

A Northern District officer answering a call of a domestic dispute Sunday morning at a house in the 100 block of St. James Drive arrested a man who lives there on drug violations, county police said.

John Lee Riley Jr., 18, was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

Officer Michael Richardson went to the house shortly before 12:30 a.m. A man at the address told him that his brother was acting abnormally, police said.

Officer Richardson found the man in the bathroom. The man seemed intoxicated, police said.

Officer Richardson got the man's permission to search his room, where he found a brass smoking device, a small glass tube, razor blades and a bottle that had been fashioned into a smoking device, police said.
