YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Wood-Ridge police detective who stepped in to break up a fight between a couple found the man carrying cocaine, a scale and 120 small bags used to package the drug, police said.
Detective Joseph Biamonte saw the two arguing in a parked car on Wood-Ridge Avenue yesterday morning, Det. Joseph Rutigliano Jr. said.
He called for backup, and both he and Lt. Michael O’Donnell found 22-year-old John Berman of Wood-Ridge carrying the contraband, Rutigliano said.
Berman was being held on $7,500 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with various drug counts, he said, adding that the woman was released without charges.
