A Mt. Olive man, allegedly in possession of 13 bags of heroin, was arrested by Washington Township Police after crashing into a parked vehicle and fleeing the scene, Lt. Doug Compton said.
Andrew Brown, 22, was charged with possession of heroin, leaving the scene of the accident, driving while intoxicated, failure to report an accident, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle, careless driving and failure to maintain lane.
Officers were dispatched to the area of 110 Bartley Road on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for a hit-and-run motor vehicle accident, Compton said. When officers arrived, witnesses told Officer Adam Feichter a gray colored sedan left the roadway and struck a pickup truck in a driveway, pushing it into another vehicle, Compton said.
The accident caused significant damage to the parked vehicles, Compton said.
Area law enforcement agencies were alerted of the incident and instructed to put a “stop and hold” once the driver was found, Compton said.
Mt. Olive police then stopped a 2002 silver Chevrolet Impala with significant front-end damage and deployed airbags being driven by Brown, Compton said.
When police investigated, they found Brown was in possession of 13 bags of heroin and was placed under arrest, Compton said.
