A Sussex County man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly completing a drug transaction across the street from Wrigley Park, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.

Tyler Slifka, 23-year-old, of Andover has been charged with heroin possession and was issued summons for drug possession in a motor vehicle, authorities said.

Passaic County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Americo Escobar observed Slifka engage in an alleged drug transaction on Montgomery Street across the street from the park. He pulled over the black Chrysler a block from the park and saw the driver, Slifka, throw an item from the passenger side window.

      Maybe because they only go there to buy drugs. It's not the same when a minority goes to a white town. There's plenty of minorities that have jobs in these white communities yet still get profiled. If you see a white guy in a monster truck with a confederate flag in Paterson he surely does not have friends there and just wants to buy drugs.
