Undercover drug detectives moved in quickly and grabbed Glen S. Thomassini as they said he sold cocaine Tuesday night in the parking lot of the AutoZone on New Bridge Road.

They found him carrying 18 grams of cocaine for sale, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal.

Thomassini, 44, was being held on $150,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with possessing cocaine with the intent to sell it.

A May 11 first appearance date was set in Central Municipal Court in Hackensack.

Thomassini, was arrested last September after detectives reported finding drugs, a .30-caliber handgun and roundball ammunition during a SWAT raid at his Fairview Avenue home. They also seized $8,000 in alleged drug proceeds.

Thomassini posted $100,000 bail eight days later and was released from the Bergen County Jail.

Investigators were back in early February, seizing an ounce of cocaine, an ounce of crack, a half-ounce of heroin, seven ounces of marijuana, various prescription legend drugs, digital scales, baggies and nearly $9,600 in drug money, Grewal said at the time.

A judge set bail for Thomassini at $75,000 -- which he posted a short time later.
