A pair of men were arrested for allegedly dealing drugs out of a two-story house on Seeley Street, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Anton Porter, 45, and Naheem Porter, 27, both of Paterson, were charged with numerous drug offenses and resisting arrest, authorities said.
Passaic County Sheriff’s Office’s Bureau of Narcotics and the Wayne Police Department Special Operations/Narcotics Unit observed both suspects engage in multiple drug sales. Both agencies conducted a two-month long investigation into the suspects’ drug activities.
Detectives obtained a warrant for Naheem Porter. He ran from officers and led them on a foot pursuit that ended at the intersection of Chestnut and Cedar streets. He allegedly tossed 100 glassine envelopes of heroin into the street during the chase.
Detectives arrested Anton Porter near Wagaraw Road in Hawthorne. Authorities then searched the two men’s home and seized 454 glassine envelopes of heroin, 63, plastic baggies of crack cocaine, several Ziploc baggies of marijuana, and $1,594 cash.
The drugs were found throughout the second-floor apartment, authorities said. Estimated value of the drugs seized is $1,900.
