CLOSTER, N.J. – Two single, unemployed men – one from Closter, the other from Demarest – had a variety of drugs for sale in their homes when Bergen County prosecutor’s detectives and local police busted them, authorities said Wednesday.
Demarest resident Adam A. Russi, who turned 20 on Sunday, and 21-year-old Michael Walling of Closter, had heroin, marijuana, “numerous doses of LSD,” psilocybin mushrooms, cocaine and hash-oil, as well as items used to package drugs for sale, when their homes were raided earlier this week, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.
The warranted searches followed a two-month investigation that found both were dealing drugs, he said.
Besides the drugs, authorities found digital scales, a vacuum sealer and baggies, the prosecutor said.
Russi and Walling were charged with various drug possession counts with the intent to distribute them.
Both were released pending first April 5 appearances in Central Judicial Processing in Hackensack, the prosecutor said.
