PATERSON, N.J -- A driver from Newark was carrying several bags of heroin and crack when Passaic County sheriff's officers stopped him for tossing litter from his window, authorities said.

Officers Joseph Royce and Francesca Vollaro stopped the 2010 Mitsubishi near the intersection of Broadway and Mill Street just after 2 a.m. Monday, Sheriff Richard Berdnick said.

After a brief investigation, 25-year-old Erick Figueroa was arrested on charges of drug possession with the intent to distribute it within 1,000 feet of a school.
