Jersey City, NJ – 4 arrested with cocaine, heroin, gun FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform

Authorities arrested four while executing a search warrant which led to the discovery of amounts of cocaine, heroin, and a handgun.

Rose Bell, Kenyatta Washington, Jahir Bell and Rashawn Harrison were all arrested when police seized 114 vials of cocaine, 19 folds of heroin, ammunition of varying calibers, and a handgun.

All four arrested were released and FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined they were 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.

Drugs and gun found during search of Jersey City home, cops say

(reported by NJ.com – Nov 17, 2017)

Police made several arrests and seized cocaine, heroin and a handgun while executing a search warrant in Jersey City on Monday.

Officers executing the warrant at 554 Garfield Ave. heard loud movement after knocking on the door of a second-floor door. Fearing evidence was being destroyed, they forced entry, according to a criminal complaint.

In the front bedroom of the unit, officers found 32 vials of cocaine, 19 glassine folds of heroin and ammunition of varying calibers, according to the complaint.

In the rear bedroom police found a handgun, 82 vials of cocaine and more bullets, the court document alleges. 

Rose Bell, Kenyatta Washington, Jahir Bell and Rashawn Harrison were all arrested in the home. They all made their first appearances on multiple drug counts in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny. 

All were ordered released with conditions of supervision pending trial and their next court hearing is scheduled for Jan. 17 before Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale in the Hudson County Administration Building in Jersey City.
