Paterson CDS Distribution Lawyers | Paterson drug sweep nets eight arrests
A Passaic County Sheriff’s Department sweep around the streets of Paterson netted eight arrests this week, including two alleged drug dealers.
According to the Sheriff, detectives focused on areas where residents had complained about unusual pedestrian and vehicle traffic that seemed to indicates drug sales were occurring. Arrests were made at Spruce and Grand Street, Jefferson and North 6th Street, Auburn Street and Broadway, West Broadway and Memorial Drive, and at 450 Kearney Street. Among those arrested were Mario Rosignano of Paterson, who was allegedly found with more than five pounds of marijuana and 1.2 ounces of cocaine at his home. Police also found various drug paraphernalia including scales, cutting agents and packaging equipment. He was charged with drug distribution offenses and held at the Passaic County Jail.
