Brent Bachert was charged with one count of 2nd degree Possession with Intent to Distribute CDS (Cocaine), one count of 3rd degree Possession with Intent to Distribute (Xanax), one count of 3rd degree Possession with Intent to Distribute CDS (Marijuana), and one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a disorderly person offense. Blake Bachert was released on his own recognizance and Brent Bachert was lodged in the Somerset County Jail.

The defendant is presumed innocent until the matter is resolved in a court of law.
