NY man charged with attempting to defraud drug test

MORRISTOWN, NJ (Morris County) – A New York man has been charged after he allegedly used a device to defraud a urine screen Wednesday, according to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office.

Alfred Mota, 20, of the Bronx was charged with defrauding the administration of a drug test at the Morris County Courthouse complex, sheriff’s office said.

Mota was providing a urine specimen for screening as a condition of his probation requirements.  A court services officer discovered that he was in possession of a device specifically designed to defraud a urine screen, sheriff’s office said.

The device consisted of a pouch containing yellow liquid, a hose and a jar containing yellow liquid, sheriff’s office said.

“The Morris County Sheriff’s Office will continue to assist the Morris/Sussex Probation Division in any way we can to assure proper procedures are followed,” said Sheriff James Gannon. “Protecting the reliability and integrity of the drug testing process is essential to the criminal justice system and the judicial process.”

Mota was released pending a future court date.
