RI Troopers Arrest Lakewood Man in Brick on Drug Charges

Lakewood man found with 22 bags of marijuana

Rhode Island state troopers arrested a Lakewood man following a traffic stop in Brick late Tuesday night and charged him with drug possession and distribution.

Troopers Connor O'Donnell and Erik Jensen stopped a vehicle on Lanes Mill Road in the area of Greenwood Loop Tuesday night at approximately 11:45 p.m. for speeding and failure to stop at a stop sign, Brick Police Sgt. Keith Reinhard said.

The troopers detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, a 2008 Nissan Altima, and also observed the handle of a hunting knife sticking out from under the driver's seat, Reinhard said.

The driver, Jamill Tucker was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest.

Further investigation revealed a small bag of suspected marijuana from Tucker's front pants pocket and an additional 22 bags of marijuana from the vehicle, said Reinhard.

Tucker was brought to Brick Police headquarters and charged with possession of marijuana over 50 grams; possession of marijuana over an ounce but less than 5 pounds with intent to distribute; possession of a weapon while committing a drug offense; and possessing drugs in a school zone.

Municipal Court Judge Robert Lepore set Tucker's bail at $75,000 cash. He was transported to the Ocean County Jail in lieu of bail.

The Rhode Island troopers were in Brick as part of a team of law enforcement that also includes officers from Louisiana, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and Michigan. They are assisting Brick police as the Hurricane Sandy cleanup continues.

"The Rhode Island troopers did a tremendous job and their professionalism was evident," said Reinhard. "The Brick Township Police Department is extremely grateful for their service."

Lisa, I hope your family is hit by a driver on pot or alcohol. You deserve it with that comment. Arien, I have a pair, I am just sorry your boyfriend or husband on the PD does not. We pay a lot of money for these guys and to expect trouble areas to be addressed is not too much to ask for.. I guess you are a loser who owns nothing and has nothing to worry about. Maybe your kid someday will disappear in sawmill like that poor girl did in the Clayton complex. Then and only then will you get it.

LOL- I am not married to a cop, where did you get that from? I get that they are well paid, no one is saying they are not. I was referring to your stalking/crush thing you have going on with Hollowman. You are right that the crime in Brick is really bad, no one is saying anything different. Instead of complaning and finger pointing, do something!! get off your butt and help! Big baby!! Whaaa is all you do! Pathedic!
