John Mielec

GARFIELD, N.J. – Nearly a half-pound of cocaine was seized by Bergen County prosecutor’s detectives after they stopped an accused bi-county drug dealer in Garfield.

John Mielec, 32, had the cocaine and eight hash oil pens when his vehicle was stopped in Garfield on Thursday, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Detectives were investigating a tip that Mielec was selling drugs in Bergen and Passaic counties, the prosecutor said.

Mielec was released pending an Aug. 30 detention hearing on drug charges in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, under New Jersey’s 2017 Bail Reform & Speedy Trial law.

Grewal thanked the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and Garfield police for their assistance.
