Two Teaneck men were among 20 people arrested Thursday by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force in a drug warrant sweep spanning six counties, authorities said.
The arrests came as a result of undercover drug investigations the task force conducted over the past 12 months, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said in a statement Friday.
Investigators seized two pounds of marijuana, more than one-half ounce of cocaine and approximately 100 pills of prescriptions drugs, along with about $3,200 in cash, the prosecutor said.
In Teaneck, Elm Avenue resident Daniel Robinson, III, and Taariq Huggins-Perdomo, of Genesee Avenue, were each arrested on charges of distribution of marijuana, distribution of marijuana within 1000 feet of school property and distribution of marijuana within 500 feet of a public park.
Robinson, 22, was released after posting $5,000 bail, according to county jail records. Huggins-Perdomo, also 22, was released on his own recognizance.
