BRICK – A man was arrested by Brick Township Police for possessing 27 bricks of heroin.
Police said Officer Scott Mesmer discovered a suspicious car in the area of the Wawa on Drum Point Rd. After observing and following the car, Mesmer pulled the vehicle over for failing to maintain its lane of travel.
Officer Mesmer spoke with the driver, later identified as Bilal Freeman, and also the passenger of the vehicle. After speaking to the individuals, Officer Mesmer realized that their stories of where they were coming from and where they were going did not match.
Officer Mesmer then requested K9 Officer Scott Smith and his partner Echo. After performing an exterior narcotics sniff of the vehicle, K9 Officer Smith and his partner Echo found drugs inside the vehicle. A thorough search revealed approximately 1,308 wax folds of suspected heroin and in total, approximately 27 bricks of suspected heroin found inside the vehicle.
Freeman was placed under arrest and charged with Possession of Heroin, Distribution of Heroin and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was also issued two motor vehicle summonses for failing to maintain a lane and possession of CDS in a vehicle. He was processed and then transported to Ocean County Jail.
Charges are merely accusations until proven in a court of law.
