WAYNE, N.J. -- A Morris County fugitive was preparing to shoot heroin in a pickup truck off Route 23 when a Wayne police detective showed up, authorities said.

Detective Paul Kindler approached the black 2014 Toyota Tacoma in a remote area off the highway and saw Jason Devonmille, 36, of Kinnelon, opening a bag of the drug, Detective Capt. Laurence Martin said Wednesday.

Inside the truck were several used bags, along with 15 full ones, a tourniquet and a hypodermic needle, he said.

Kindler arrested Devonmille, who records show was also wanted on drug charges by the Morris County Prosecutor's Office and had a pair of outstanding warrants -- one from Kinnelon and other from Butler -- worth a combined $3,250, the captain said.

Devonmille was sent to the Passaic County Jail, charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia, having drugs in a motor vehicle and the warrants.

A judge ordered that he remain held there, pending further court action, following a detention hearing.
