When police responded to a call about a man who was allegedly causing problems inside of an establishment due to the belief that he was drunk they reported that he claimed to try to share knowledge of how the universe works, and upon his arrest, he was accused of possessing drugs.

The owner of Crawdaddy’s N’awlins Grill & Raw Bar had placed a call to the authorities when he felt that one of the men inside of the establishment was drunken and behaving in a disorderly manner. The proprietor said that he asked the person to exit the bar but he would not comply.

Just after 1:00 pm, a sheriff’s deputy arrived at the bar and the owner alleged that the offender was 42-year-old James Sutton.

A man was riding a bicycle through the streets of Jensen Beach near midnight when local deputies in the area noticed that the bike was lacking lights, making him less visible to drivers on the road.

When the deputies stopped the man regarding his absence of front and rear lights, they reported that he did not want to cooperate and he would not disclose his name to them. The man then allegedly tried to continue on his way but the deputies prevented him from leaving the vicinity.

The man, identified as 22-year-old Jabari Schweitzer, was reportedly carrying a bag and during a search of the contents, a deputy discovered a baggie inside containing just under two-and-a-half ounces of what they suspected was drugs.

A man who volunteers as a leader for the Boy Scouts in Staten Island, NY, was taken into custody for accusations that he was selling heroin out of the basement at his uncles New Brighton home. His uncle is accused of the criminal activity as well.

Kevin Saunders has worked with the Boy Scouts of America as a volunteer for nearly a year. He began taking a significant interest in working with the children when one of his cousins, the son of his uncle Adam Soler, became a member of the organization, according to a statement from Saunders’ younger brother who is 22-years-old.

When the Staten Island Narcotics Heroin Overdose Task Force was investigating the origin of the illegal narcotics in one of the recent local fatal heroin overdoses, they believed the drugs had been obtained from Saunders, and they began to look into his activities. Their efforts led them to Soler’s home, and they suspected the heroin was being distributed from that location. On Friday they obtained a search warrant to inspect the premises.

A Pompton Lakes man who volunteers as a Santa Claus impersonator was pulled over while driving on Monday and arrested for alleged drug charges.

Charles R. Smith, a retired New Jersey Transit worker, currently does volunteer work dressing as Santa Claus for the Toys for Tots Foundation. He had been driving down Route 46 around 2:00 in the morning on Monday when South Hackensack police pulled him over for a routine traffic stop. Smith stated that he was on his way to a nearby motel at the time. One of the officers spotted a crack pipe next to Smith’s Santa suit which was hanging in the vehicle, and a search of the car allegedly uncovered empty plastic bags containing crack cocaine and heroin residue. A hypodermic needle was also said to be amongst the contraband items.

66-year-old Smith was taken into custody and faces two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released shortly after his detainment and awaits a court hearing. It is unknown whether Smith has legal representation at this time.
