Hackensack Man Charged with Marijuana Possession
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Anthony Gorga (57) of Hackensack, N.J. for possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia on March 10, 2017. On that date, at approximately 12:46 P.M., Officer Jeffrey Dean was on patrol in the parking lot when he allegedly observed a 2015 Jeep bearing the same New Jersey registration, that he observed only days earlier, acting suspiciously in the same parking lot.
He then stopped the vehicle as it exited the lot and found it to be operated by Gorga. Further investigation allegedly led to the discovery of a small quantity of suspected marijuana and a pipe. Gorga was arrested, processed and released on his own recognizance pending a appearance in the Fairfield Municipal Court on March 16, 2017.
(It should be noted that the charges against Gorga are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until he either pleads guilty or is found guilty in a court of law)
