Friday, April 14, 2006

Hudson County narcotics officers locked up four accused drug dealers in Hoboken and Guttenberg and seized 360 grams of cocaine in a spin-off of the investigation that let to arrests and the seizure of up to 20,000 bags of heroin last month.

“This is a continuation of cooperative law enforcement effort against these alleged drug dealers,” Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said today. “On a weekly basis they were dealing wholesale quantities, supplying the street level and mid-level dealers in Hoboken, Jersey City and North Hudson."

Arrested on drug distribution charges were Yeddy “Mini Me” Lora, 30, and Brenda Natasha Bourdier-Hernandez, 21, both of Polk Street in Guttenberg; Hoboken residents B. Hashim “Shim” Scott, 31, and Darryl “Bubby” Oliver, 34, DeFazio said.

E. Ava Johnson, 21, of Hoboken, was charged with obstructing the administration of a governmental function, DeFazio said.

Investigators recovered more than 250 grams of powder cocaine and about 100 grams of crack cocaine during searches of two vehicles and homes in Hoboken and Guttenberg, DeFazio said. The cocaine was in a hidden furniture compartment with a manual trigger switch, he said.

The arrests came as part of a seven-month investigation by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Municipal Task Force, the Hoboken Police Department and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, DeFazio said.

Bail was set at $500,000 for Lora Bourdier-Hernandez and Scott, DeFazio said, and at $250,000 for Oliver and Johnson.
