HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A Hackettstown man was arrested last month after he fled on foot from police, authorities said Thursday.
On March 29, at around 3:54 p.m., a Hackettstown police officer observed Gregory Becker, 34, walking on Main St and the officer was aware that he had a $250.00 Mount Olive Township Municipal Court criminal warrant and a $750.00 Mount Olive Township Municipal Court traffic warrant, police said.
Officers made contact with Becker and as he was being led to a police vehicle, he fled from the officers. Becker ran across Main Street causing vehicles to come to a sudden stop and swerve, police said.
Officers caught Becker as he started to ditch into an alleyway. He had in his possession one wax fold containing suspected heroin, four empty wax folds and several hypodermic needles, police said.
Becker was charged with third-degree possession of heroin, third-degree resisting arrest, fourth-degree resisting arrest, fourth-degree obstructing administration of law enforcement, disorderly persons offense possession of hypodermic needles, and disorderly persons offense possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on the Hackettstown charges and the Mount Olive Township warrants pending court appearances.
