PATERSON, N.J. -- Paterson detectives seized more than a half-pound of marijuana and nearly $5,700 in cash while arresting three people during a raid on a quiet local street.

The pot was found bundled in two knotted bags during Tuesday's warranted search, assisted by Prospect Park police, city Police Director Jerry Speziale said.

Charged with having it for sale was Orlando Trinidad, 28, who lives in the Hopper Street home, Speziale said.

Charged with buying it were Jesse Krautheim of Haledon and Tiffany Broere of Paterson, both 21, he said.

All were released pending court hearings.
