On Wednesday, September 19th, at 2:30 p.m., Patrolman John Fitzgerald stopped a 2005 GMC truck occupied by two (2) males for delaying traffic on West Westfield Avenue at Chestnut Street.

The driver, Daniel Heskeyahu, 28 of Roselle Park, was found to be in possession of a knife. He was also charged with possessing a small amount of suspected marijuana. The passenger, Christopher Ferreira, 29 of Kenilworth, initially identified himself as Christopher Teixeira. However, no record of Teixeira was found.

Patrolman Fitzgerald investigated further and was able to confirm his identity as Ferreira. Ferreira was found to have warrants from Westfield and Cranford municipal courts.

Both were later released pending an appearance in Roselle Park Municipal Court.
