A self-employed South Carolina painter was nabbed carrying 4½ pounds of heroin in Englewood, authorities said.

Juan Osto-Alvarado, 36, remained held Friday in the Bergen County Jail after a judge in Hackensack denied his release, records show.

Narcotic Task Force detectives arrested him during a traffic stop Tuesday after learning that that Osto-Alvarado “was trafficking narcotics between South Carolina and New Jersey,” Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.

Osto-Alvarado has a first appearance scheduled on first-degree drug possession charges this Tuesday in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
