A Pennsylvania man not only had heroin, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia in his car when Wayne police stopped him -- but two children as well, authorities said.

Officers Mark Ciavirella and Ryan Vallaro stopped 29-year-old Joshua J. Lindfors' red Hyundai sedan with "obvious equipment violations" just before 6 p.m. Sunday on Route 80 west when they found a marijuana pipe, 25 glassine envelopes stamped "PANDORA" containing heroin, two used envelopes also stamped "PANDORA," a Ziplock bag containing marijuana and a hypodermic needle uncapped, Wayne Police Capt. Laurence Martin said.

Lindorfs of Dingmans, P.A. -- who did not have a valid drivers license -- was arrested on seven charges relating to child endangerment, drug possession and an expired drivers license, Martin said.

The children in the vehicle were handed over to another adult who was in the vehicle at the time of the incident, the captain said.

Lindorfs tested negative for drug use and was remanded to the Passaic County Jail.
