A Woodbury New Jersey woman was arrested outside Newark Liberty International Airport and charged with multiple drug offenses.
The suspect is a 27-year-old female from Woodbury, NJ. According to authorities, she was a passenger in a blue Mercury Villager being driven near the Newark Airport around 6:00 p.m. Port Authority police officers were on patrol when they reportedly saw that the front windshield of the vehicle was cracked. The Port Authority NJ cops subsequently pulled over the car just in front of Terminal A.
Police officers spoke to the driver, a 30-year-old male from Westville, NJ, and allegedly smelled marijuana.
Port Authority cops later searched the passenger, the Westbury woman, and allegedly found her in possession of 63 ecstasy pills and more than a dozen plastic containers of marijuana.
Police also ran computer check on the driver and reportedly learned that he had outstanding arrest warrants out of Camden, Haddon Township, and Mickleton.
The two suspects were arrested at the scene. The Woodbury woman faces criminal charges for possession of marijuana and illegal possession of prescription drugs, while the Westville NJ man faces charges for driving with a suspended license and bail jumping.
