Thomas Johnson, 20, was targeted following a tip that he was dealing, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said Thursday.

A series of undercover buys followed before investigators arrested Johnson on Tuesday and charged him with a single count each of distributing each drug, Calo said.

A Central Judicial Processing Court judge in Hackensack released him from the Bergen County Jail less than 24 hours later, with conditions, under New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform law.
