ONLY ON CVP: Wallington police, responding to complaints of drug dealing in local bars, said they arrested a cocaine dealer parked outside a borough tavern with several small bags of cocaine in his pockets.
Jan Niemiec, 34, was sitting in the passenger seat of a gold Volkswagen, its motor running, that blocked the driveway of a bar at Hathaway Street and Lincoln Place when police approached him, Detective Lt. Shawn Kudlacik told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
Niemiec “had no ID on him,” Kudlacik said. “He was acting very nervously. He wouldn’t take his hands out of his pockets.
“It was a safety concern.”
The lieutenant said he found Niemiec carrying a little less than half an ounce of cocaine worth about $150.
Niemiec, who has addresses in Wallington and Garfield, posted $7,500 bail and was released pending a court appearance on charges of possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute the drug.
