A 32-year-old city man carrying five vials of steroids and allegedly looking to do a “line” with his friend was arrested during the early morning hours of Saturday, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Allen Oldja, 32-year-old, was arrested at around 3:13 a.m. on Saturday, after authorities observed he was driving his Audi vehicle in the wrong direction on a one-way street at the intersection of Van Houten and Rosa Parks Boulevard.
Oldja was nervous and profusely sweating when authorities pulled him over. “I am going to be honest with you I came to visit my friend so we can do a line of cocaine together,” he told Sheriff’s Officer Craig Goodson.
The suspect was directed to the passenger side of the vehicle by the officer. He put up a slight struggle during the arrest. A gym bag was observed in the vehicle during the struggle that was found to contain zip lock bag with five small glass vials of suspected steroids.
Officer Goodson retrieved the plastic bag and inquired whether Oldja had a prescription for the drugs. Oldja told authorities he did not have any prescription for the steroids.
Oldja has been charged with steroid possession, resisting arrest, drug possession with the intent to distribute, drug possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, loitering to commit a drug offense, and going wrong way down a one-way road, Berdnik said.
