HANOVER — Hanover Township Police Officer Robert Miele apprehended a 24-year-old Morristown resident, Carlos Ulloasanto, on charges of controlled dangerous substance (CDS) possession on Sunday, October 8.
Responding to a call at a Cedar Knolls home about a disturbance, Officer Miele entered the home with permission. Inside, he found a group of people partying, but no signs of a fight.
During interactions with the attendees, Officer Miele discovered a packet suspected to contain cocaine, easily visible to all.
Ulloasanto, a guest at the party, exhibited unusual behavior and had a noticeable white powder on his nostrils.
He was taken into custody, facing charges of CDS possession and being under its influence. Ulloasanto was later released, awaiting his court hearing.
