A New York man was arrested on Godwin Avenue allegedly in possession of heroin on Monday morning, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Denis Gordiyenko, 25-year-old, of Port Jervis, NY, was arrested with 30 glassine envelopes of heroin stamped “Lean On Me” with blue ink. He was charged with heroin possession, authorities said.
