KEARNY – A 26-year-old Kearny resident was arrested Monday after police allegedly observed him ingesting a controlled substance in the area of Belgrove drive and Lincoln avenue.
According to officials, on May 18th at approximately 1:30 p.m. Nicholas Savage, who is well-known to police due to previous interactions, appeared to be ingesting a controlled substance. When told he was under arrest for the use of a controlled dangerous substance, Savage attempted to push past the detectives but was taken down to the ground after a brief struggle. He continued to resist arrest and tried to reach for something under his shirt but officers managed to handcuff him. Police recovered a dagger type knife attached to a chain around Savage’s neck and a further search incident to arrest located seven wax drug folds stamped with the logo “Danger” containing heroin.
Savage was transported to headquarters and charged with use of CDS, possession of heroin, possession of paraphernalia, resisting arrest, aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, and certain persons not to have weapons. He was transported to Hudson County Jail where his bail was set at $50,000.00 full.
