A day trader from Monmouth County was busted after selling cocaine to an undercover detective from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, authorities said.
William Berry Jr., 46, of Englishtown first sold a half-ounce in August after members of the Narcotics Task Force targeted him, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.
He then sold an undercover investigator nearly half a pound of the the drug last week and was busted, Calo said. Detectives found him carrying more cocaine, along with a digital scale and several plastic baggies for packaging, the prosecutor said.
Berry was released pending a Sept. 19 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on charges of possessing and distributing cocaine.
