Rookie Netcong Patrolman Gerard Hardiman stopped an 18 wheeler Tuesday Night for exceeding Main Street's 6 ton weight limit. When the driver of the truck gave him several false names Hardiman called for back up. The driver also identified his passenger as his uncle. But when police asked the drivers "uncle" what the drivers name was he said he did not know.
The Morris County Sheriff's K-9 dog was brought to the scene and found over $100,000 dollars cash in a duffel bag. After getting a search warrant 10 kilograms each of cocaine and heroin was discovered hidden among the truck's cargo of fresh onions. The street value of the drugs is about 1 million dollars. I guess the smell of onions didn't throw off the K-9 dog!
The 2 men were eventually identified as Vantwuan Williams (44) of Victorville, California and Earl Haggens (57) from Los Angeles, California. Both men are now facing numerous charges in the Morris County Jail.
Hardiman has been a police officer for less than a year. Nice work officer Hardiman.
