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.
