It may come as no surprise to New Jersey residents that officials are starting to crack down on illegal drugs, which can turn into criminal charges for many. With this being said, a numerous amount of people may be spending the upcoming holidays in jail or court. For a town in New Jersey, 70 citizens may be spending the holidays disputing drug charges for which they were arrested.
Apparently, the drug sweep has been a work in progress for about eight months. Police were wanting to locate and arrest anyone with suspicious activity regarding illegal drugs, and those who use the illegal drugs. The sweep was allegedly the result of other tenants in the apartment complex complaining about what they thought were drug transactions.
