Hackettstown, NJ – Woman arrested for crashing 7 cars, heroin, store theft, FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform

Linda Harris, 58, of Hackettstown, was arrested after she allegedly was caught with heroin and oxycodone after crashing into 6 cars and damaging a 7th and stealing from the local QuickChek convenience store.

Police responded to a report of a 2006 Jeep that hit several cars and fled the area. Police located the Jeep at the Mountain Avenue QuickCheck and a subsequent investigation led to the discovery of the drug and the theft from the store.

Harris was charged with possession of heroin, possession of Oxycodone without prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, shoplifting, driving while under the influence, driving while under the influence in a school zone, reckless driving, possession of controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, failure to report a motor vehicle accident, failure to inspect, and a cracked windshield.

Harris was released and FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.
