Detectives made a massive drug bust at a house on Godwin Avenue on Monday afternoon seizing 18,012 glassines of heroin and 1,228 capsules of crack-cocaine, said police director Jerry Speziale.
Oscar Saez, 58-year-old, was arrested on seven drug charges, said the director. The director said Saez was arrested when detectives raided the first floor of 19 Godwin Avenue at about 12:50 p.m.
Saez was taken to downtown Paterson headquarters for processing.
Drugs seized from Saez is valued at $100,000, said police.
Speziale said Saez’s arrest is the result of numerous community complaints of drug dealing on lower 12th Avenue.
“Collaboration with the community unleashed the power of the many to do what no one can do alone,” said Speziale. “I am proud of the tireless efforts indicative of Paterson’s Finest.”
