Cops: Cash Seized From Man Who Had Pot, Cocaine

A 19-year-old Blairstown man was charged with intending to distribute drugs in a school zone after he allegedly was found with narcotics at Drew University, police said.

A 19-year-old Blairstown man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday after a Drew University Public Safety officer responding to a noise complaint determined he allegedly had cocaine and marijuana, authorities said.

Justin Dennis was arrested at 2:31 a.m. by Patrolman Sean McCarthy, who charged him with possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute within a school zone, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a Madison police news release.

Police seized $1,123 in cash from Dennis, police said.

McCarthy responded to the university after receiving a call about the drugs from the public safety officer who originally investigated the noise complaint at Eberhardt Hall and determined he allegedly had the narcotics, police said.

Dennis was processed at police headquarters and released pending a court appearance, according to police. Sgt. John Miscia assisted with the arrest.
