Upper Saddle River, NJ – NY drug dealer arrested with crack in his pants, 7k in drug money FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform

Marlin Turner

Marlin Turner, 34, of Saratoga County, NY, was arrested during a routine traffic stop when officers found 2 ounces of crack hidden down his pants and over $7,000 of suspected drug proceeds.

Turner, who has a criminal history of involving the distribution of drugs, was later released and FREE TO GO after his first appearance under NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined that 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.
