According to a report from NJ.com, Richard Stroman Jr., 38, from North Arlington, Jose Acosta, 37, from Hoboken, and Miguel Carrasco-Lara, 35, from Lyndhurst were arrested on June 24th after being accused of operating a “drug mill” out of a West New York and Union City home.
State police informed that the West New York home was used as the primary drug mill, and the Union City home was used for packing and distributing heroin and fentanyl.
After an investigation in May, State Police found $1,900 in cash, kilogram presses, and several cellular devices in the homes, including 84 pounds of heroin and fentanyl.
All three men were charged with maintaining a drug production facility, possession with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and conspiracy.
State Police Superintendent Pat Callahan expresses his relief in arresting the three men, stating that State Police has “saved multiple lives because even the smallest amount of fentanyl is deadly to anyone who comes in contact with it.”
