Paterson man arrested in 21st Avenue drug bust


An alleged drug dealer was arrested in a drug bust on 21st Avenue, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.

Jahmiek Williams, 20, of Paterson, has been charged with various drug possession and distribution offenses.

Detectives received information about street-level drug dealing in the parking lot of the Exxon gas station at 241 21st Avenue. They witnessed Williams’s vehicle with fictitious New Jersey temporary plates and tinted window enter the gas station at around 2:58 p.m. on Friday.  His vehicle was followed as it exited the gas station.

Williams was pulled over at 21st Avenue and Beech Street. A strong odor of marijuana emanated from his vehicle. He was ordered to step out of the vehicle. Loose marijuana was scattered on the driver’s side seat of the vehicle, authorities said.

259 glassine envelopes of heroin were seized from Williams. He was taken to the Passaic County Jail.

      Always makes me wonder how casually lawless Paterson is. I can barely leave my house without a police escort!

        horrible….it is taken over by criminal element..killing , drug dealing but because it does not serve political agenda of BLM and other progressive movements no one really cares.It is nothing to do with oppression- it has all to do with no family values, no work ethics…instant gratification by getting 20$ today and now, Vs 200 after few hours of work. there are signs all over paterson "now hiring"–and i doubt all these bodegas and pizza places are checking criminal records….no one here wants to work…they rater stay on corners 14-16 hours a day

          Very disturbing. People from town understand. Those looking in from the outside have no clue.

    Brother call BLM. These officers have no right stopping you. They stopped you because you are black.
