Paterson drug dealer nabbed after chase through Rosa Parks Boulevard, sheriff says


A city man was arrested with hundreds of bags of heroin after a chase through Rosa Parks Boulevard, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.

Arturo Pena, 31-year-old, has been charged with three drug offenses and resisting arrest by flight.

Detectives spotted Pena walking on Rosa Parks Boulevard and Hamilton Street at around 9:20 p.m. on Monday. As detectives dressed in marked Passaic County Sheriff’s vests began to approach, Pena began to run down Rosa Parks Boulevard towards Godwin Avenue.

Pena was arrested in an empty lot on Rosa Parks Boulevard just before Godwin Avenue. He had 380 glassine envelopes in his possession. 280 were stamped “Suicide” with black ink and 100 stamped “Pablo Escobar” with blue ink.

Detectives also seized $264 cash. Pena was handcuffed and taken to the Passaic County Jail.
