Newark – As part of an on-going series of drug investigations in the city’s North Ward, Essex County sheriff’s detectives today executed a search warrant for a townhouse, located at 992N Franklin Avenue, and recovered more than $3,000 in illegal narcotics.
Sheriff Armando Fontoura stated that officers from his department’s Bureau of Narcotics executed the warrant shortly before noon on Friday at the residence of Loudres Nasario, age 39.
“Ms. Nasario was already in the county jail, having been arrested on Monday on shoplifting charges by Bloomfield police,” Sheriff Fontoura stated. “The search of her residence yielded 229 heroin-filled envelopes, stamped ‘100% Pure’ in red ink, 52 plastic jugs, containing ‘crack’ cocaine, and an assortment of drug processing and packaging materials.”
Nasario was further charged with two counts each of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of CDS with intent to distribute, possession of CDS with intent to distribute within 1000 feet of Park Elementary School and possession of CDS with intent to distribute within 500 feet of a public housing complex. The suspect was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Nasario remains in the county jail where she now awaits a further bail hearing on today’s charges.
