Couple Carrying Heroin Had 7-Year-Old, 3-Month-Old In Car released for free without any accountability or supervision thanks to New Jersey Bail Reform.
A local couple had their 7-year-old son and three-month-old daughter with them when a New Milford police officer stopped their car for speeding and found several bags of heroin, hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia, authorities said Thursday.
Detective Sgt. Kevin Van Saders told Daily Voice that he arrested the pair on various drug-related offenses, in addition to child endangerment.
Police released the couple for free without any accountability, under New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform law, pending a hearing in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
“The children were turned over to a relative,” Van Saders said.
