Robert Johnson, 38, of Jersey City, is charged with two counts of possession with the intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, two counts of possession with the intent to distribute within 500 feet of public property, two counts of possession with the intent to distribute, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, Suarez said in a statement.

He was arrested at his residence and transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility pending his first court appearance, which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, August 23rd.

In the early morning hours of Friday, August 18th, members of the HCPO Gangs Task Force, with assistance from Hudson County Regional SWAT, executed a court-authorized search warrant at Johnson’s residence on Van Wagenen Avenue.

The search resulted in the seizure of suspected cocaine, heroin, and drug paraphernalia and two children were present in the home at the time the court-authorized search was conducted, authorities said.
