Burglar alarm leads to drug arrest in Mount Olive Twp.

MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A Flanders man faces multiple charges after drugs were found in his bedroom during a burglar alarm call.

Thomas Vazzano.22, was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Oct, 24 at 11:09 a.m., police responded to an activated burglar alarm at a residence on Southwind Drive, police said.

When police arrived, they observed the front door that was unlocked and a ground level window that was damaged with a broken screen and a cracked window, police said.

Officers announced their presence as they entered the residence to make sure the home was safe and secure. All the lights inside the home were off except in a locked bedroom closet. Officers gained access to the closet to determine that a suspect was not hiding inside, police said.

When officers gained access to the closet, there was an open safe inside the closet. In the safe, there was allegedly vials of suspected THC oil, a scale and a plastic bag containing suspected marijuana. Suspected cocaine along with a rolled dollar bill, and a bank card was allegedly found on top of a dresser, police said.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the bedroom belonged to Vazzano. Upon completion of the investigation, he was charged and released pending a court hearing.
