A city man was found guilty of dealing drugs on Rosa Parks Boulevard by a jury on Monday, according to authorities.
Tyian Edwards, 32-year-old, was convicted on four drug related offenses including possession and distribution. He faces a maximum of 10 years in state prison, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Detectives charged Edwards with drug offenses when he was seen reaching into his waistband and handing a woman baggies of marijuana stamped with a black eight ball in exchange for paper currency in the area of 50-52 Rosa Parks Boulevard on April 3, 2014 at around 2:44 p.m.
Police found him with 15 baggies of marijuana stamped with a black eight ball and $175 in cash, authorities said. The woman was found with two baggies of marijuana bearing the same stamp just a block away from School 10.
Edwards is being held at the Passaic County Jail pending sentencing on March 10, 2017 before New Jersey Superior Court Judge Joseph Portelli.
