MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A Flanders woman was taken into custody Saturday morning after drugs were allegedly found during a traffic stop in Mount Olive Township.
Michelle Decaro, 46, was charged with possession of CDS schedule I-IV, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, delaying traffic, improper safety glass, failure to inspect vehicle, and possession of CDS in a motor vehicle.
On March 7, at 9:27 a.m., a township officer observed a 2002 Mercedes Benz stopped in the roadway on Netcong Road, blocking both lanes of travel. As the officer approached the Mercedes, the vehicle moved from across the roadway and proceeded towards Route 46, police said.
The officer then stopped the vehicle in the area of the BP Gas Station and made contact with the driver, who was identified as Decaro, police said.
As the officer spoke with Decaro, the officer noted that she appeared to be very nervous, and did not have a clear explanation for the manner in which she had been driving, police said.
A search of the vehicle was conducted and police found two bundles of glassine envelopes containing suspected heroin, a gummy candy containing suspected THC, and a needle cap for a hypodermic syringe, police said.
Decaro was charged and released pending a court appearance, police said.
