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."

Thank you Rhode Island for doing what the locals will not. Please apply within, we need more aggressive law enforcement officers.

You know I find it amusing that when I said more of this needs to be done Bricks finest, aka the Hollowman told be it could 'nt and then belittled me. It only took two active police officers in bad uniforms from hundreds of miles away to prove him wrong. If this was done constantly these people would move away to where they could operate easier.
Patricia Applegate November 15, 2012 at 05:55 AM
How come it's always the police that are the bad guys? Maybe if you had co-operated, you would have been on your way sooner.

Thank you to all of the out of state police, utility workers, fire, EMS, and other volunteers. Your selfless assistance and generosity is welcomed in this disaster!

Are these the same Rhode Island troopers from the Jim Carey movie, "Me, Myself and Irene"?
Hollowman November 15, 2012 at 01:17 PM
The obsession continues!! Woohoo I love having an online crush/stalker.
Grateful for what I have November 15, 2012 at 01:40 PM
Jason, My husband also has been stopped while trying to do his job. Told he had to have a work order before entering into certain areas. But putting things into perspective. If I am one of the home owners that lost alot (maybe my house or just part of it) I would rather the cops be pr*cks to everyone to protect me and my hard earned belongings. Sandy was the inconvienence in a lot of lives. Your minor inconvienence of having to prove you are there to work is nothing compared to what the business owners and home owners are living through. And yes, my husband continues to work on the island and areas that require him to show proof of why he is there. Now he just carries the information he needs for them and shows work orders when entering even if it is the same patrol on everytime. Maybe its time for you to take a break from work and look at the devastation you are going into and the impact it has had on the people and understand WHY the police are being "pr*cks".

Whoa, been out to ole Mississippi years ago. ...You do not want to be a yankee from NJ and get stopped by a good old boy Mississippi state trooper. Oh wait they are here in NJ. yikes!!!!!!!
WMS826 November 15, 2012 at 01:44 PM
That's what they are here for, to be a force or a presence. Maybe intimidating people is what we need more of instead of nicey nice so the bad guys will leave. Watch and lean Hollowman, or quit and become a n ACLU attorney.

Send the Mississisppi troopers into Asbury Park, Newark, Atlantic City and Camden. That should go over real well.
Curious November 15, 2012 at 02:20 PM
I had talked to a couple Louisiana troopers in brick the other day. 2 decent guys. One white and one black. Courteous, caring and understanding. They knew what we went through because they had gone through it themselves. Thanks Louisiana for sending your finest up here to help. And folks, lets cooperate with them to make our clean up and rebuilding a success and take less time. They deserve our respect as well as we deserve theirs. Be stupid and you'll be sitting with them for a while.
Curious November 15, 2012 at 02:25 PM
Also remember they are looking for looters. They come out day and night so cooperate and do not give them any reason to suspect your a looter. They've dealt with looters before and they know what they're doing.
Brickresident November 15, 2012 at 03:22 PM
omg not marijuana. lol
Mattie November 15, 2012 at 03:29 PM
Someone needs to learn how to wrap up the stink weed so it doesn't waft around.... Maybe NJ will follow the lead of some other states and just legalize, regulate and tax MJ - for all uses. Would be a big boost for state revenue, and we can use that!
Brickresident November 15, 2012 at 03:48 PM
very true. It would bring it alot of money. Its not any better then having a drink. so why not.
WMS826 November 15, 2012 at 06:25 PM
Yes more impaired people is what we need. Meanwhile you libs won't let me buy a soda bigger than 16 ounces.
Brickresident November 15, 2012 at 06:42 PM

WMS826 November 15, 2012 at 07:53 PM

Tapuout November 15, 2012 at 11:38 PM
Yes wms your right because that was the only lock up for year I suggest you check the depa stats just because it's not on the patch doesn't mean it didn't happen, hey I have hollow mans number you want a date?
Arlen November 16, 2012 at 05:23 PM
WMS you just need to stop! You are the classic finger pointer! Bash the police, are you doing anything to help this community? are you out there helping people? or are you sitting behind your computer barking orders on what others should do? Thank you to all police, NJ, LA, RI and whoever else took the time to care about the people of Brick to HELP! Just stop your baby games and grow a pair!
lisa November 17, 2012 at 06:28 PM
legalize it and this loser wont be selling it and our tax dollars wont be wasted prosecuting him.
WMS826 November 19, 2012 at 01:57 AM
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.
Arlen November 20, 2012 at 02:42 PM
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!
Arlen November 20, 2012 at 02:43 PM
By the way, I own 4 homes, guess Im a loser like you! LOL
