An undercover Bergen County prosecutor’s investigator bought a total of 450 bags of heroin and 20 bags of cocaine in Elmwood Park in separate deals from a Paterson man who was taken into custody, authorities said.
Diarre Chitty, 19, who is unemployed, was targeted in the sting after authorities received a tip that he was dealing in town, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.
Chitty, of Lyon Street, was taken into custody Friday in Elmwood Park after a series of sales, Musella said.
A judge ordered him released pending further court action after a detention hearing.
Chitty is charged with several drug distribution counts.
