Supply and demand 2: 1,000 pieces of heroin seized from Paterson, three dealers, three buyers dismantled
Pursuing a strategy of “supply and demand” disruption, Paterson detectives arrested three traffickers and three middle-aged buyers while seizing more than 1,000 cases of heroin, authorities said.
Surveillance of the famous corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Fair Street led to the arrests of Tameer Jones, 35, Paterson and Crystal Kim, 33, of Little Ferry on charges of smuggling, among other offenses, said Director of Public Safety Jerry Speziale.
Detectives seized 568 cases of heroin, nine bags of crack cocaine and $ 455 in proceeds, Speziale said.
They also arrested a trio of buyers, all from Paterson – two men, one 53, the other 49, and a 52-year-old woman, he said.
Jovan Hill was arrested in a separate operation on Carroll Street off 12th Avenue, which was “observed doing several hand-to-hand transactions,” Speziale said.
Detectives seized 435 cases of heroin, he said.
All of the accused traffickers have been sent to Passaic County Jail to await first appearances on drug-related charges at Paterson Central Judicial Processing Court.
