Two arrested at America’s Best Value on drug charges


HANOVER TOWNSHIP — After conducting an extensive and in-depth investigation into reports of widespread illegal drug sales and use at the America’s Best Value and Red Carpet Inn, on Wednesday, March 6, Officers and Detectives from the Hanover Township Police Department arrested Mr. Drone Green, 39, Trenton, and Ms. Amirah Barnes, 34, Morristown.

They were charged with Possession of over one ounce of cocaine, Possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, Possession of heroin, Possession of heroin with intent to distribute and Possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both defendants were residing at the America’s Best Value Inn at the time of their arrests. The investigation also resulted in the arrests of additional subjects for various offenses such as drug possession and outstanding warrants as well as numerous motor vehicle summonses being issued. The Drug Enforcement Administration and Morris County Prosecutor’s Office provided assistance with this investigation. We hope that this investigation sends a bold message that the Hanover Township Police Department will continue to vigorously pursue those individuals involved in illegal drug activity or other crimes.

Editor’s Note: An arrest or the signing of a criminal complaint is merely an accusation.  Despite this accusation, the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until he or she has been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
