Bergen County cops arrested two men yesterday who they say had hidden 3,010 decks of heroin in their minivan. The heroin is worth about $100K.
The suspects, 29-year-old Yeuri Jimenez and 31-year-old Lenny Montero, were caught around 8:30 a.m. yesterday after a cop noticed their vehicle was speeding and driving erratically on Route 4 in Fort Lee. The two reportedly appeared to be nervous and told the officer "conflicting stories," according to the cop; he searched their car, and allegedly found the stash in a hidden trap in the car.
Jimenez and Montero are both from the Dominican Republic, and officials say they're in the United States illegally. Cops believe they were planning to sell the heroin; they've been charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and possession of heroin. Jimenez also allegedly used a fake Pennsylvania driver's license, and has been charged with possessing a false government document.
They are both being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
