A Ridgefield Park man who apparently couldn’t find family members who he said live in a Hoboken apartment complex was arrested for trespassing and then was found to have 20 bags of marijuana.
When Bryan Hansen, 27, was located in the Hoboken Housing Authority building on Jackson Street on Nov. 20 by Police Officers Sam Williams and Marvin DeJesus, he told the officers he was visiting family in the building for Thanksgiving.
But Hansen, who was found in the seventh floor stairwell, could not identify the apartment in which they live and he was charged with trespassing.
Officers handcuffing Hansen detected the odor of raw marijuana emanating from him, authorities said, and Williams and DeJesus then found 20 small bags of marijuana inside two cylindrical tubes.
Hansen was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana within 500 feet of Hoboken Housing Authority property, possession with intent to distribute marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, criminal trespass and possession of narcotic paraphernalia.
