On August 25th at approximately 2:36 p.m., the Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit responded to a residence on the 200 block of Front Street to conduct a follow up investigation.
During a search of the Front Street residence, Edgar Agramonte, 38, of Union City was found in possession of suspected cocaine and 15 suspected ecstasy pills. He was arrested and also found to have an active warrant from Jersey City with a bail of $2,000.
Also during a search of the residence, Jessica Murphy, 40, of Lake Hopatcong, was found in possession of over 20 grams of suspected methamphetamine, two bags of suspected raw heroin and a quantity of suspected Adderall, along with drug paraphernalia.
As a result, she was also placed under arrest.
“The Secaucus Police Department remains committed to conducting proactive investigations to rid our town of dangerous drugs and hold those accountable who intend on distributing them within our community,” Chief Dennis Miller said.
“I commend the hard work of my Anti-Crime Unit and their commitment to bringing these criminals to justice.”
Agramonte was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
On the other hand, Murphy was charged with three counts of possession of CDS, possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession with the intent to distribute heroin, possession with the intent to distribute a CDS within 500 feet of public housing, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both were processed and remanded to the Hudson County Correctional Facility.
