One of those arrested — 25-year-old Lawrence Jennings — was brought into court earlier today and charged with violating terms of a drug court agreement. He was being held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
Also being held — on $125,000 bail — was Pedro Colon, 22, who lives in a taxpayer-subsidized on Newman Street that was raided Friday night.
Colon is charged with various counts of marijuana possession — including being in public housing and within 1,000 feet of a school. He’s also charged with possession of Ecstacy and drug paraphernalia.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for an alleged partner of Colon’s, identified as Shaheed Muhammad, 29, who also lives there but wasn’t home at the time of the 7 p.m. raid.
