Roselle Park Police arrested an East Orange man for allegedly having approximately 3,750 individually packaged glassine folds of suspected heroin and 20 grams of suspected marijuana.

The arrest was a result of an initial traffic stop for a red light violation on Friday, August 5th, at around 7:41 in the evening. Patrolman William Hannon stopped a 2016 Chrysler minivan for running a red light. The driver of the vehicle, Lucius L. Randleman, age 33, was found to be driving with an expired Virginia driver’s license. A search of the vehicle was conducted after Patrolman Hannon reportedly detected the odor of marijuana. It was then that the narcotics were discovered. The street value, according to Roselle Park Police, is estimated to be approximately $37,000 dollars.

Mr. Randleman was placed under arrest and transported to Roselle Park Police Headquarters where he was processed.

He was formally charged with one (1) count of Possession Of C.D.S. With Intent To Distribute (1st degree), Possession With Intent To Distribute Within 1,000 Feet Of A School (3rd degree), and Possession of C.D.S. (3rd degree).
