5 arrested in Green Brook drug bust

Five people have been arrested after an investigation by the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force and Green Brook township police.  Raphael Salermo, 21, of Warren; Alfred Stephens, 21, of Plainfield; Nyesha Mills, 20, of Plainfield; Carl Mattos, 21, of Green Brook; and Jonathan Alvarez, 22, of Green Brook have beenn charged with various drug offenses.

The first arrest started with a stop of Mattos’ car even though there is no indication as to why he was stopped.  After a search of his car allegeldy revealed drugs in the car, the police obtained a warrant and searched two rooms at the Ivory Motel in addition to a car that pulled up to the Motel room while the search was underway. 

This will be tough for all of the defendants because Somerset County is a tough place to practice.  Many of our cases wind up going to trial.  Story is here.
