Newark man had cache of weapons and drugs – including an AK-47 rifle, a pump shotgun, two pistols, two revolvers, more than 400 rounds of ammunition (some body armor piercing hollow-points), extended magazines, 550 decks of heroin, 200 vials of cocaine, and hollow-point ammunition.
Jorge A. Jimenez, 27, a Newark resident, was arrested Wednesday after police were tipped off about the weapons and drugs. One of the weapons was reported stolen out of Virginia Beach, VA.
Jimenez 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.
