Manchester police say that an officer stopped the car driven by Aldo Ventiere, 33, near a convenience store on Route 571 Monday for a road violation. According to police, Ventiere left the car and ran into some nearby woods. When he was found, say police, he had six bags of heroin and drug-related items on him.

When backup officers arrived, witnesses told them that the passenger in the car “grabbed something off the ground” and drove off toward Toms River.

Toms River police confirmed that the car was parked at the address reflected on the MVC registration database. Inside, they found Ryan Hildebrandt, 30.

Ventiere was charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia, obstructing the administratio of law, hindering apprehension, resisting by flight, resisting arrest and several driving infractions. His bail was set at $10,000 in municipal court. But he was transferred to the Ocean County Jail, say police, on the strength of outstanding warrants totalling more than $100,000.

Hidebrandt was charged with obstruction and released on a summons to await a court hearing.
