PREPARED BY DETECTIVE LIEUTENANT STEPHEN DOLLINGER

On January 23, 2011 at approximately 2:05 pm Patrolman Richard Fulham was on patrol in the area of Bamm Hollow Road and Middletown Lincroft Road when he stopped a vehicle for having a view obstruction in the front windshield.

Upon stopping and approaching the vehicle, Patrolman Fulham detected the odor of raw marijuana coming from the passenger compartment. The officer began speaking with the occupants of the car to determine the source of the odor when one of the passengers, identified as Jesse Ballard, age 19, from Birchwood Lane in Middletown, told the officer that he was in possession of the marijuana and that it was located in his jacket pocket.

Patrolman Fulham checked the jacket and located a cigar filled with marijuana, a zip lock bag which contained seven individual foil packets each containing a green vegetation which Officer Fulham recognized as marijuana and $370.00 in currency. At this point Ballard was placed under arrest for possession of the marijuana. The driver was issued a summons for the view obstruction violation and was released at the scene.

Ballard was transported to police headquarters where he was charged with Possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and Possession of under 50 grams of marijuana. While being processed on the drug charges it was determined that Ballard had three outstanding Contempt of Court warrants from the Middletown, Red Bank and Keansburg Municipal Courts. He was held on $1096.00 total bail.

  1. >This piece-of-shit has been dealing drugs to our children in Middletown and surrounding areas for years now. I wonder how many lives this scumbag has destroyed. I know my child is just one of them. What is it going to take to put this low-life in prison? I know for a FACT that he is still dealing and using. I know that he was using and dealing just last night, last week, last morth, etc. He'll still be dealing and using tomorrow. Too bad we can't tar and feather him and run him out of town. Come on police do your job and get him behind bars where he belongs.
