Irvington’s Mayor and Public Safety Director Report Execution of Search Warrants Result in a Big Catch

Irvington’s Mayor Tony Vauss and Public Safety Director Tracy Bowers announced the execution of search warrants that resulted in the arrest of 11 adults and 1 juvenile.  The arrests were for various charges, all making for a major crime sweep.

“Our police executed search warrants at 62,73 and 75 Ellis Avenue,” said Mayor Vauss. “As a result, officers arrested and charged 12 individuals with various crimes. Six of the individuals were charged with possession of controlled dangerous substances and four others were arrested on outstanding warrants.”

“The two main targets of the search warrants were caught and charged with several serious offenses,” said Public Safety Director Bowers. “These charges include: possession; possession with intent to distribute; intent to distribute within 100 feet of a school zone; conspiracy; possession of a loaded handgun and a loaded Ruger LC 9mm.  These two perpetrators were also charged with the possession of: 190 capsules of Molly; about 1 gram of crack cocaine; 25 grams of Amphetamines; 1900 grams of marijuana; 13 Naproxen tablets; and, 10 packets of heroin. They had $545 in currency in their possession.”

“Once again, the men and women of the Department of Public Safety have protected the Township of Irvington from people who mean us no good, “said Mayor Vauss. “We will continue to make our message clear: Irvington is not where you want to do your crimes unless you want to serve time. That is a promise.”
