Hudson County Sheriff Says Discovery of Marijuana in Home Brings New Jersey City University Student’s Arrest

Two pounds of suspected marijuana and $12,000 was found by Hudson County sheriff’s officers while serving a restraining order at the home of a New Jersey City University student in Greenville Monday, reports said.

Aldrin Lopez, 28, of Culver Avenue, turned himself in Tuesday and is charged with numerous drug counts, including possession of more than 50 grams of marijuana/hashish with intent to distribute near a school and near public property, reports said.

The investigation began when Lopez’s ex-girlfriend went to the Sheriff’s Office on Monday and said he had threatened her, Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari said.

She filed a complaint alleging harassment and terroristic threats, and later that day a temporary restraining order was issued for Lopez, Schillari said.

That night, sheriffs officers went to Lopez’s apartment to serve the TRO and they were allowed in by his roommate, Schillari said, adding that when they entered Lopez’s bedroom they smelled a strong odor of marijuana.

They obtained a search warrant and found the $12,000 and suspected marijuana and hashish, as well as drug packaging paraphernalia including a scale and bags, Schillari said, adding they also found six cellphones.

On Tuesday, Lopez turned up at the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office on Cornelison Avenue and surrendered, Schillari said. His bail was set at $25,000 cash or bond when he appeared at Central Judicial Processing court in Jersey City on Tuesday.
