$87K in Street Drugs Seized After Police Probe

Parsippany man is being held on $175K bail at the Morris County Jail for allegedly planning to sell controlled substances in a school zone.

Parsippany Police report a weeks-long investigation into a suspected drug distribution effort in a school zone resulted in a raid and arrest last Friday at the home of a local man. Police say approximately $87,000 in illegal substances including marijuana, cocaine and Ecstasy was recovered.

The PPD's Investigative Division launched a probe several weeks ago after gathering information about controlled substances being sold within the township, according to a police statement. On Friday, officers executed a search warrant on the residence of 30-year-old Justin Caron.

Department spokesperson Ptlm. Earl Kinsey said the man was arrested at the scene and was charged with possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, MDMA (a pure form of Ecstasy) and marijuana; and with intent to distribute controlled substances in a school zone.

The estimated street value of the drugs that were seized is about $87,000, according to the report. 

Caron is being held at the Morris County Jail in lieu of $175,000 bail with no 10 percent option, Kinsey said.

Eight pounds of marijuana, 11 grams of cocaine, 11.5 ounces of MDMA or “Molly,” 15 syringes, a digital scale as well as packaging supplies commonly used in conjunction with distribution were placed into evidence.

You know what, Bob? There is not one single plausable explanation for selling drugs. I'm sorry, but there isn't. If a person can't live within their means, then thats their problem. Would you want drug traffic next door to you? No? I didn't think so. Those of us that lived near/next door to this person were subjected to noise and traffic in the middle of the night..So you are essentially saying, selling drugs near a school is ok? How about selling them to your kids? Even better, how about selling them in your neighborhood? You want the risk of some person being high as a kite mistaking your house for the dealers? Didn't think so. And who is talking about this guys "issues"? As far as I see posted, no one, but you.

I actually know him well but we lost touch when he got too deep into this mess. I did tell him numerous times to his face, in the past, that he was an idiot for doing this and "you better be careful you don't get caught". he did not need the money. He's your average middle class joe who just wanted to make extra $ ..probably to spend on drugs. He's a very very nice guy who would do anything for his friends and family. If you didn't know him, you would never know this side of him. He's a good guy. It's a shame that he chose this life, but you live with the consequences of your own decisions. However, you are entitled to your opinion on it being okay to sell an absurd amount of drugs. I'm assuming you are in the same job market?

We all know quite well that Parsippany has it's glorious moments of corruption. However, this seems to me like a job well done by the town. I love to read "political" banter between people who don't have the skills, credentials, or courage to actually actively participate in politics. Try hitting up a town meeting instead of blasting people on internet forums. You might learn something. But that would mean speaking out for what you believe in in FRONT of people, which most of you couldn't possibly do. Keep on keeping on, phantoms of the internet. One thing you'll never hear - "I was reading a post by someone on the Patch today and it really changed my opinion on the political situation in Parsippany." Something you are far more likely to hear - "God, those idiots that always post on the Patch are at it again. What a bunch of egotistical tools."
