Detectives also confiscated 184 Xanax pills, 7 bottles or 2.6 pounds of Promethazine, 7 bags or 346 grams of marijuana, 1 bag or 7 grams of crack cocaine, and 6 hollow point 9mm rounds.

Police charged Ignacio Quiroz, 23; Kenneth Grant, 27; David Ramirez-Martinez, 69; Joshua Cruz, 25, all of Paterson, with numerous drug offenses.

Quiroz, Grant, and Ramirez-Martinez were each charged with 19 drug and weapons offenses, police said. Cruz was charged with marijuana possession.
