Paterson cops arrest alleged Irvington drug dealer with handgun, half-pound of pot


An alleged drug dealer from Irvington was arrested in Paterson with a handgun and half-pound of marijuana on Tuesday, according to public safety director Jerry Speziale.

Devon Williams, 21-year-old, of Irvington, has been charged with drug and weapons offenses. Police observed him at the high crime intersection of 17th Avenue and East 29 Street at around 8 p.m.

Williams allegedly placed a clear plastic bag containing marijuana into a second bag. Detectives exited their vehicle and Williams walked away and tried to hide himself in a business that was open at the time.

Police took notice of the fanny pack on his waist as he entered the business. Police followed him in and arrested him. Police seized the bags that allegedly contained 1/4 kilogram of marijuana and a loaded Kel-Tec 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

Detectives confiscated $322 in cash from Williams. Williams was taken to headquarters for processing.

Police said Williams is being held at the Passaic County Jail pending a court hearing.

    Paterson has become the shithole for thugs and gangbangers. I dont understand why these low lifes come into Paterson to drug deal. Go drug up your own community. Paterson is already messed up as it is.

        All the disgusting,crime,drug and gang infested cities are run by Democrats.Why isn't totowa like Paterson? Answer that. Because they are educated,responsible,hard working,upstanding Americans with morals and ethics who raise/educate their children like human beings instead of letting them roam like wild beasts in the streets.

      They like to be enslaved,under Democrat government assistance and programs so the lazy asses dont have to work.That would spoil their hours long tv garbage show watching,and partying in the streets all day and night. The youth programs and centers raise their kids until 10pm.i feel sorry for the seniors & others stuck here who can't afford to move out,and worse for the 1/3 of the hard workers of this corrupt city who pay taxes for the other 2/3 ,who are living free off tax payer $ or claim non profit status.
