MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll, along with Chief of Detectives Robert McNally and Chief Dean Adone of the Roxbury Township Police Department, confirmed the sentencing of Eldridge Cruzado, a 21-year-old resident of Kenvil, New Jersey.

Between May and June of 2023, a collaborative effort involving the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the Roxbury Township Police Department, and the United States Postal Inspection Service conducted a thorough investigation into Eldridge Cruzado’s involvement in the distribution of various narcotics within the state and across the country. This illegal operation involved the delivery of drug packages to multiple post offices in Morris County, several of which were intercepted, leading to the discovery of a significant quantity of Lysergic acid diethylamide, commonly known as “LSD.” Following the execution of search warrants at Cruzado’s residence, he was apprehended and charged with these offenses.

On November 13, 2023, in a hearing presided over by the Honorable Ralph E. Amirata, J.S.C., Cruzado entered a guilty plea to an amended charge of second-degree distribution of LSD. On January 5, 2024, he received a ten-year sentence in New Jersey State Prison for his involvement in the distribution of narcotics.

Prosecutor Carroll expressed his appreciation for the exceptional teamwork displayed by the Roxbury Township Police Department, the United States Postal Inspection Service, and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit. He emphasized that this resolution reflects the ongoing commitment to removing dangerous narcotics from the community and holding individuals accountable for jeopardizing the safety of the community.

Chief Adone underscored the origins of the case, which began with a routine patrol response to a service call. Ptl. Nicole Parichuk initiated the initial investigation, recognizing the need for further inquiry. Subsequently, Ptl. Parichuk alerted the Detective Bureau, setting in motion an exhaustive ground-up investigation that required hours of dedicated police work from all involved parties. Chief Adone expressed gratitude towards the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit and the United States Postal Inspection Service for their invaluable assistance, which significantly contributed to the successful outcome of the case.
