YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An ongoing campaign by Elmwood Park police to nab people passing through town with drugs also netted two borough men when both were found with pot during a traffic stop, authorities said this morning.
James Nyman, 23, also was carrying 44 Vicodin pills without a prescription in addition to the marijuana that authorities said he and 25-year-old Paul Nahra had when they were stopped on 16th Avenue Friday night, Police Chief Michael Foligno said.
Yesterday afternoon, Foligno’s officers arrested 45-year-old Matthew Cox of Cliffside Park on charges of having four bags of heroin and one of cocaine after he was stopped on Locust Street. He also received a summons for having drugs in a motor vehicle, the chief said.
All three men were released pending court hearings, he said.
