Ocean Township man found with heroin, oxycodone at Monmouth Road traffic stop
The inauspicious driving of an Ocean Township man led to a motor vehicle stop but it was what was inside his vehicle that led to his arrest.
Ocean Township Police said in a statement Tuesday that 56-year old Philip Blumenthal is charged with Possession of Heroin and Oxycodone.
The stop took place on Monmouth Road around 8:40 pm on August 12 after Blumenthal was spotted committing a motor vehicle violation.
At the stop, the police officer on scene found that Blumenthal was riding around without a valid license.
The officer then discovered that Blumenthal was in possession of heroin and prescription legend drugs and without a valid prescription.
Blumenthal was arrested and then transported to police headquarters for processing.
He was later released on a criminal summons pending an initial court appearance.
