ONLY ON CVP: A Teaneck man was carrying 270 bags of marijuana and packaging materials when he stopped by a Hackensack police officer, authorities said.
Ramadhan Muhammad fit the description of a man who’d just snatched a cellphone from a Main Street store when Officer Alexis Mene approached him Sunday afternoon, Detective Capt. Thomas Salcedo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
“As they began talking, the officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana,” Salcedo said.
When Muhammad opened his backpack to retrieve his identification, Mene spotted two clear plastic cannisters of marijuana, the captain said.
A search turned up one zip-locked bag of pot and another filled with 100 smaller baggies for packaging, he said.
Muhammad was being held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail on various drug distribution and possession charges.
Police, meanwhile, continued looking for the cellphone thief.
