Kathryn Jarvis, 40, of Secaucus, possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, two counts of possession of a CDS, possession with the intent to distribute a CDS within 500 feet of public housing, and possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to distribute, Miller said in a statement.

The Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit, under the supervision of Det. Sgt. Matthew Ford, launched an investigation to corroborate or dispel the concerned citizen’s tip.

Yesterday, around 7 p.m., detectives from the Anti-Crime Unit arrested Andres Marquez, 33, of Milltown, after he purchased a quantity of cocaine from Jarvis, who resides on the 200 block of Front Street.

After a month’s long investigation, the Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit, supported by the Secaucus Police K-9 Unit, conducted a Court authorized search of Jarvis’ residence on Thursday.

During the search, quantities of suspected cocaine and methamphetamine were seized along with ledgers and drug paraphernalia that was indicative that Jarvis was packaging illicit narcotics for street sale.

“This arrest is a direct result of the partnership formed by the Secaucus Police and the community. The Secaucus Police Department will continue to investigate all tips and complaints generated by our residents,” Miller added.

“The Anti-Crime Unit continues to curtail criminal activity within Secaucus and I am thankful for their hard work, but am proudest of their motivation to eradicate crime that affects the quality of life in this town.”

Tips can be made by calling (201) 330-2049, emailed to spdtips@secaucusnjpolice.gov or submitted anonymously through the department’s website.
