On 5-8-2017 at about 10:48 AM, Pinehurst officers confiscated a substance believed to be Methamphetamine while investigating suspicious activity in the 1200 block of 28th St. This is the same area as the incident that occurred on 5/1/2017 in which a 41 year old Orange resident was arrested for possession of the illegal substance.
Officers had responded to the area in reference to suspicious activity and during the investigation a quantity of a substance believed to be Methamphetamine was located.
The investigation is in progress and charges are pending. West Orange Police assisted.
Hanauer added that of the 4 recent incidences involving the illicit drug, none of the suspects reside in Pinehurst and the cases have been made as a result of criminal interdiction efforts by officers.
The case is related to ongoing illegal drug distribution cases being investigated by the Orange County Precinct 2 Constable David Cagle and the Pinehurst Police Department.
Hanauer stated that this joint operation is an example of local agencies working together to help achieve common goals in combating the distribution of illegal drugs in the area.
