FAIRVIEW, N.J. -- State child welfare authorities took custody of a 12-year-old Fairview boy after after borough police and DEA agents swooped in during a drug deal Tuesday night, scooped up three pounds of pot and arrested his father and another man.
Cedric Ulloa, 32 ( above photo, right ), also had a stun gun, for which he was charged, along with child endangerment and various drug and distribution counts, Sgt. Michael Martic told Daily Voice.
A three-month investigation led to Tuesday's climax.
Authorities were watching as Ahned Bahlol, 29, pulled up to the Probst Avenue home and Ulloa emerged carrying a green bag that contained about a pound of marijuana, Martic said.
Detectives had already obtained a search warrant, which they executed, he said. Along with the pot and stun gun, they found packaging materials, the sergeant said.
Bahlol ( above photo, left ) was charged with drug possession and distribution, among other counts.
Both remained held in the Bergen County Jail on Wednesday pending a detention hearing.
