MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A Morris County man was taken into custody Thursday evening after drugs were allegedly found during a traffic stop in Mount Olive Township.

At 8:07 p.m., an officer on routine patrol observed a 2001 BMW traveling onto Main Street from Rt. 206 with no front license plate. The officer then stopped the vehicle in the area of Flanders Bartley Road, police said.
The officer made contact with the driver, who was identified as Bubay and observed that he was nervous and appeared to be under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, police said.
Officers searched the vehicle and found three small zip lock baggies containing suspected cocaine, two baggies of suspected marijuana and two pipes containing suspected cocaine residue, police said.
Bubay was placed under arrest, and a subsequent search of Bubay’s person yielded an oxycodone pill in his pants pocket, police said.
Bubay was released pending a court hearing.
