>Crime Scene Middletown: MAN ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES AFTER MOTOR VEHICLE STOP ON TINDALL RD.

>PREPARED BY DETECTIVE LIEUTENANT STEPHEN DOLLINGER

On January 30, 2011 at approximately 11:00 pm Sergeant James Prosinski was on patrol in the area of Tindall Road when he stopped a vehicle for having improper tint on its windows. Patrolman Richard Fulham, who was also in the area, arrived as back up.

After approaching the vehicle and obtaining the driver’s credentials, Sergeant Prosinski returned to his vehicle to conduct a records check on the driver, identified as Jeremy Browne, age 19, from Spring Street in Red Bank. While Sergeant Prosinski was conducting the records check Patrolman Fulham remained at the vehicle and began speaking with Browne. At this point Browne turned the heat on in his vehicle and the odor of raw marijuana began to come from the interior.

Patrolman Fulham recognized the odor of the raw marijuana and requested a narcotics canine team respond to the scene. Patrolman Christopher Tuberion and his canine partner Mako of the Union Beach Police Department arrived on scene and conducted a search of the exterior of the vehicle. K-9 Mako hit on the trunk of the vehicle which indicated the presence of a narcotic substance.

After advising Browne about the canine’s indication, Sergeant Prosinski and Patrolman Fulham received written consent from Browne to conduct a physical search of his vehicle. While searching the trunk they located a black back pack which contained a jar filled with green vegetation which the officers recognized as Marijuana and another jar which contained pills believed to be Ecstasy and a generic brand of Xanax. Further search of the back pack revealed numerous short straws and rolling papers used to injest narcotics as well as a plastic bag which contained a white powdery substance believed to Cocaine. The officers also located $2421.00 in currency and written payment records.

Browne was arrested and transported to police headquarters. He was charged with Possession of Ecstasy, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of over 50 grams of Marijuana, Possession of Xanax, Possession with the intent to distribute controlled dangerous substances, Possession of drug paraphernalia, Possession with the intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school zone, and Possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. He was held on $55,000.00 bail with no 10% option set by Judge Richard Thompson.

  1. >Why are we still only hearing aboutthe routine drug busts and not the violent crime in Middletown?

  2. >Anon 9:56,I don't if this is true but I just heard from a friend that at 7 pm Monday or Tuesday night a woman got into her van in the Middletown Target parking lot,a guy was in the back hiding. He sexually assaulted her at knifepoint. I am planning on calling the police department to see if it is true or if they will comment.

  3. >Thank you to all the police officers that are doing their best to keep us safe, and to keep the drugs away from our kids.

  4. >Did anyone hear of a sexual assault of a woman in the Middletown Target parking lot?

  5. >Yes, we heard about the alledged sexual assault at Target. As it turns out the assault never happened.It was a bogus report that has been circulating around through email. I and others have contacted the police about it and have been told that it never happened as far as they have been able to determine.So it is time to put the myth to.rest before it goes any further.
