Suspected Druggie Snared by The Urge
A Holmdel 57-year-old might have to blame his bladder for his arrest on drug charges in Monmouth's Ocean Township.
Police say Vincent DiCristofalo was seated in his car with Peter Strate, 33, of Cliffwood Beach, in the Middlebrook Shopping Plaza lot around 2:34 PM, when he exited the vehicle to urinate in the lot.
It didn't escape the attention of Detectives Michael Melody and Bryan Morgan, who strolled over to find Strate using a "controlled dangerous substance," police said.
The detectives found both men holding drugs and cited them on a raft of charges, police said.
Di Cristofalo is charged with possession of cocaine, drug paraphernalia, loitering to buy a controlled dangerous substance, urinating in public, possession of a CDS in a motor vehicle, and several driving offenses.
Strate is charged with possession of heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia, and loitering to purchase a controlled dangerous substance.
Both were issued summonses and released to await municipal hearings.
