A 22-year-old driver who led police on a high-speed chase through Hudson County is facing numerous drug charges, authorities said.
Zachary H. Nemiri of Bayonne was driving a 2003 Acura in the area of Kennedy Boulevard and 47th Street around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, Bayonne police Capt. Eric Amato said.
Nemiri sped away as Bayonne Police attempted to initiate a traffic stop, traveling into Jersey City and eventually coming to a stop in the area of Seaview Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, Amato said.
More than 50 grams of marijuana, as well as THC candies and narcotic paraphernalia, were found in Nemiri’s vehicle, authorities said.
