Heroin Arrest

On Sunday, May 10, at approximately 11:30 pm, Patrolman Brian Dickson responded to a Center Street restaurant for a report of two intoxicated males in a vehicle in the parking lot. Upon arrival, Ptl. Dickson approached the 2010 Ford Taurus and soon observed a marijuana cigarette – later determined to contain synthetic marijuana — in plain view. A short time later, he discovered that passenger Joseph Jakaj, age 20, of Clinton, was in possession of three (3) bags of heroin and also had a $375 criminal warrant out of Clinton. Ptl. Dickson arrested Mr. Jakaj and charged him with Possession of Heroin, Possession of a Synthetic Cannabinoid, and Being Under the Influence of a Controlled Dangerous Substance. He was released after posting the necessary bail.
