Fifteen arrests, plus 3 more later... according to nj.com:
Holy cow, an "open air drug market" in Hoboken? Apparently so, according to a 2-month investigation performed by the HPD Narcotics Unit and the Hudson County Prosecutors office.
According to nj.com:
"Eighteen people were arrested for selling marijuana, heroin and crack outside the West Side Plaza, a strip mall on Jackson Street, Hoboken police Chief Kenneth Ferrante told NJ Advance Media. Police arrested 14 people on Friday afternoon and one man on Wednesday in connection with the drug sales, he said. A majority of the people arrested were outside the strip mall at the time of the raid. After police announced 15 arrests late on Friday, three more men were arrested near the Hoboken Housing Authority in connection with drug sales outside the strip mall, Ferrante said."Yikes. Excellent work by our HPD under Chief Kenneth Ferrante. Make no mistake, this is very dangerous work.
GA is heartened to see an HPD focused on crime, not politics nor nailing the geeks of Reform.
