On July 29th, 2020, the Secaucus Police Department arrested Hector Reveron subsequent to a motor vehicle stop on Secaucus Road. During the stop, he was placed under arrest for an active warrant from North Bergen with a $350 bail, Miller said in a statement.

At the time of his arrest, he was found in possession of 34 bags of suspected crack cocaine and three folds of suspected heroin. He was charged with multiple crimes and remanded to the Hudson County Jail, but released a short time later.

In May of 2021, the Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit developed information that Reveron, a
town resident, was supplying a variety of drugs to Hoboken residents.

As a result, the Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit and the Hoboken Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit collaboratively conducted a narcotics investigation.

During the probe, two individuals were arrested in Hoboken by members of the two police department after they were observed purchasing heroin from Reveron, authorities said.

At the culmination of a two-month long investigation, Reveron was arrested by members of the Secaucus and Hoboken Police Departments today at his Riverside Station Boulevard
apartment.

Shortly thereafter, a search of his apartment was conducted where $9,423 in cash was seized, which is believed to be derived from criminal activity.

Additionally, a search of an apartment Reveron is associated with on the 300 block of Harrison Street in Hoboken was also conducted. Ernest Walker and Angela Rodriguez were found within the Harrison Street Apartment and were arrested after the search.

Also during a search of the Harrison Street apartment, more than one and a half ounces of suspected cocaine and crack/cocaine, a quantity of suspected heroin, along with materials used to package narcotics for street sale, were seized along with $362 in cash.

“The Secaucus Police Department will continue to work collaboratively with other law enforcement agencies to pursue and apprehend criminals across jurisdictional boundaries that have a nexus to Secaucus,” Miller explained.

“The ongoing partnership between the Hoboken and Secaucus Police Departments will help
ensure a better quality of life for the residents in both Secaucus and Hoboken … The collaboration, planning and execution of this operation was exemplary.”

He also thanked the Hudson County Regional SWAT and Hudson County Sheriff’s Office SWAT for their assistance in making entry into the apartments in Secaucus and Hoboken.

“I want to personally thank Chief Dennis Miller for his continued leadership and assistance to both our agency and community … To the residents of the Hoboken Housing Authority, I thank you for your continued patience, community support, collaboration and communication,” added Hoboken Police Chief Daniel LoBue.

“We at the Hoboken Police Department understand that this a partnership that we wish
to continue to build.  Additionally, I urge all residents to report any and all criminal activity by calling our department at 201-420-2100.  I along with my team look forward to meeting with local leaders and community partners to help assist in any way possible.

Reveron, 41, of Secaucus was charged with possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute heroin, two counts of distribution of
heroin, three counts of possession with intent to distribute within 500 feet of public
housing, three counts of possession with intent to Distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of cocaine, conspiracy to distribute cocaine and money laundering.

After being processed, he was lodged in the Hudson County Correctional Facility.

Walker, 37, and Rodriguez, 27, both of Hoboken were each charged with possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute within 500 feet of public housing, three counts of possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of cocaine, and conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

  1. We need HUD and The Feds to take over the Hoboken Housing Authority…CLEARLY, the self serving political hacks, the wealthy condo owners and self interested bloviating chairman and his sidekick are not competent…
    They failed the test time after time.
    It’s time to raise the bar on who runs this critical and important type of housing. Enough with those who only care about owning their political careers…
    It’s time we not only raise the bar, but also appoint members who exceed it!

    • Maybe a typo???… but if it’s not, perhaps ask the Chairman, he’s a teacher after all… but to his credit, it’s nice to see his former allies forgave him for always holding his fifth vote over their heads when they needed him most… so foolish and so dumb on his part… even dumber was his joining up with Russo and Romano to run with that OG team and really flush whatever credibility he had in the reform group that elected him.

      But let’s get back to the real question, why didn’t anyone but the Russo/Romano team want him?

      • Don’t forget his new BFF James ( man of 1000 addresses ) Sanford… that whacko with his idiotic council race pledge/ set up.
        A Trump Republican who wants to be on a housing commission is pretty sketchy
        Wonder what he thought of Trumps terrible choice for HUD commissioner ?
        All we heard when Trump was cutting funding from that Right winger was political nonsense in the council races asking them to stay out of the housing authority – denying free speech and chances for Hoboken’s neediest to meet the candidates ?

        • Thought it was Dr. Ben Carson who headed up HUD and did a great job cleaning things up to improve people’s lives living in public housing who was appointed there by President Trump.

          Why did the “racist” President Trump appoint a black doctor to head HUD?

          Dr. Carson was appointed by Ben Carson who’s life story is about rising up above the trap of poverty. He certainly is a great brain surgeon and has a great story. President Trump was insistent in asking him to head and clean up HUD.

          Which is quite different from the criminal Dems who want to keep these poor people trapped in public housing for votes.

  2. WHY ARE THESE CRIMINALS ALLOWED TO STAY IN THE HOBOKEN HOUSING AUTHORITY ? A FEW YEARS BACK THEY SAID IF SOMEONE IS CONVICTED OF A FELONY YOU GET REMOVED. MOST RESIDENTS OF THE HHA ARE LAW ABIDING DESERVING PEOPLE A FEW BAD APPLES ROTS THE WHOLE PLACE.

    • Too busy handing HHA voucher money to the YMCA where they can’t even run that properly either… lost their membership in the national network

  3. Who ever thought a Housing Authority would end up in the hands of a bunch of middle to upper middle class white Republicans who have no connection to the needs of the people there…
