CLIFTON, N.J. -- A Clifton driver had no fewer than 16 different types of drugs -- including Oxycodone, MDMA, crystal meth, GHB, mushrooms and even pot brownies -- when officers found him asleep at the wheel in the parking lot of a local shopping center, authorities said Tuesday.

Hector Veloz, 31, was taken into custody by Officers Timothy Taffin and Thomas Trommelen after they found him parked in the Ackerman Avenue lot with the drugs, which Detective Lt. Robert Bracken said included:

  • Diazepam;
  • Viagra;
  • Oxycodone;
  • MDMA;
  • Lamotrigine;
  • Fluoxetine;
  • Clonazepam;
  • Tramadol;
  • Promethazine;
  • Gabapentin;
  • Ambien;
  • Psilocybin (mushrooms);
  • Crystal methamphetimine;
  • Gamma hydroxybutyrate;
  • Liquid methamphetamine;
  • Marijuana brownies.

Veloz also had vials, pushrods, pipes, scales, baggies, syringes, torches, spoons, and grinders -- as well as credit cards that weren't his, Bracken said.

Police charged Veloz with a host of drug and paraphernalia possession offenses, as well as theft and drug distribution counts, the lieutenant said.

Additional charges resulted from being within 1,000 feet of Sacred Heart School on Clifton Avenue, he said.

Veloz was released pending a court appearance.
