Police arrested three people – two Paterson and a Haledon resident — and seized more than half-pound of marijuana in a drug bust at a Hopper Street home on Tuesday evening, according to police director Jerry Speziale.
Speziale said police raided 90 Hopper Street at about 6:15 p.m. City residents Orlando Trinidad, 27, of Hopper Street, and Tiffany Broere, 21, of Albion Avenue were arrested in the bust. Police also arrested Jesse Krautheim, 21, of Haledon.
Trinidad, who lives at the house, had 245 grams of marijuana, said police. He also had $5,691 in drug money. Police said he sold 2 knotted bags of marijuana to Broere and Krautheim.
Trinidad was charged with five drug related charges while Broere and Krautheim were charged with possession.
Speziale said city police were assisted by officers from the Prospect Park Police. He said detectives executed a search warrant at the home.
“The collaboration between our agencies unleashed the power of the many to do what none can do alone,” said Speziale.
