Hopatcong Man Admits Having Crack – Again, Police Say
Resident arrested twice in one month after telling police he was in possession of narcotics, authorities report.
A Hopatcong man told police he had crack cocaine on him for the second time in less than a month, according to Hopatcong Police Lt. Thomas Kmetz.
Police responded to a report of a drunken driver on Maxim Drive on March 14, with a vehicle description and license plate number, Kmetz said.
Officer Thomas Snyder found the vehicle travelling on Maxim Drive a short time later, and noticed Robert Bullard, 62, driving, Kmetz said. Snyder recognized Bullard in the car and knew the driver’s license was suspended, subsequently pulling him over, Kmetz said.
While speaking with Bullard, Snyder found Chore Boy on the floor of the vehicle, which is commonly used at the end of a crack pipe to smoke crack cocaine, Kmetz said.
Upon question, Bullard told police he had crack on him and took a bag containing several pieces of the narcotic out of his slipper, Kmetz said. Police also found a crack pipe inside the vehicle, Kmetz said.
Bullard was charged with possession of crack cocaine, driving while suspended, possession of paraphernalia, being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a vehicle, failure to exhibit documents and unclear plate.
On Feb. 22, Bullard admitted to Hopatcong Police during a traffic stop he had crack cocaine in his possession as well as heroin and was charged.
