Newark – Two suspects were arrested today and narcotics charges were filed against them.
Sheriff Armando Fontoura stated that a task force comprised of sheriff’s detectives and Bloomfield police officers executed a search warrant for an apartment at a townhouse, located at 385 Roselle Avenue in Newark, at noon on Wednesday.
“In a bedroom, our officers discovered 41-year-old Johnny Flournoy who was in possession of 208 heroin-filled envelops, stamped “THRILLER” in green ink, 250 plastic vials of ‘crack’ cocaine and $582 in cash,” Fontoura noted.
Jennifer Pena, 29, also of Newark, was found to have four similarly marked decks of heroin in her bra.
Flournoy was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute CDS and one count on maintaining a fortified premises.
Pena was charged with possession of CDS and was found to be the subject of an outstanding Superior Court warrant.
Both suspects were lodged at the county jail where they await bail hearings on today’s charges.
