Drug Arrest

Twenty-three-year-old Charles Witherspoon, Jr. of Linden was recently taken into custody during an undercover sting. He's charged with drug possession and intent to distribute.

At the time of his arrest, officials say Witherspoon was already out on bond.

"He's out pending bond on some other drug charges, not too long ago. We also have a pending assault charge on the guy," says Linden Police Chief Jeff Laduron.

Bond for Witherspoon has been set at $7,500.
