The following arrest information was supplied by the Parsippany Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
A Parsippany woman faces charges including possession and distribution of marijuana after being busted Monday evening in her Lake Hiawatha home, according to Parsippany Police.
Department spokesperson Sgt. Yvonne Christiano reports Michelle Scacco, 21, is now free on $10,000 bail with no 10 percent option.

According to police, a search warrant was obtained and in the search that followed, investigators found materials used in preparing for the sale and distribution of marijuana, including two digital scales, a grinder, small packages what police suspect is pot and some partially smoked cigarettes that authorities believe is marijuana.
Scacco was arrested and later released upon posting bail. In addition to possession and distribution of marijuana, the woman faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution within 500 feet of a public park.
