A four-month investigation into an individual trafficking cocaine from Paterson to Bergen County towns led to three arrests on Tuesday, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.
Authorities arrested Samuel Irizarry, 26; Jenece Miranda, 26; Alma Rivera, 35, all of Paterson, on drug charges.
Irizarry was the target of the investigation that began in August. Authorities received information Irizarry, also known as “FAME,” was allegedly selling cocaine into Bergen County. Undercover detectives in various Bergen County towns purchased cocaine from Irizarry on multiple occasions, authorities said.
On Tuesday, Irizarry, Miranda, and Rivera were arrested conducting the sale of over an ounce of cocaine in front of a two-year-old child, authorities said.
The two-year-old is Irizarry and Miranda’s child, authorities said. All three were charged with drug possession, distribution, and child endangerment.
The trio is scheduled for a court appearance at the Bergen County Court on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 8:30 a.m.
