Cocaine Bust After M'town Accident

The following information was obtained directly from Middletown Township Police Department records. It does not indicate convictions.

A Middletown man ended up being arrested on cocaine possession and intent to distribute charges after he allegedly fled the scene of an accident.

On April 22, Patrolman Adam Colfer responded to a report of a collision at the intersection of Edward Avenue and Main Street, in the Belford section of Middletown, where a vehicle had struck a fire hydrant and then left the scene.

Officer Colfer recovered pieces of the vehicle at the scene that assisted him in identifying the vehicle. He conducted a follow up investigation and located the vehicle at a residence on Church Street.

Officer Colfer continued his investigation, which resulted in the arrest of Richard Weber, 41, of Church Street, and charged him with possession of cocaine, possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession with the intent to distribute cocaine with 500 feet of a public park and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officer Colfer also allegedly recovered $2,463.00 in currency from Weber, which was seized for possible forfeiture.

Officer Colfer also arrested John Young, 25, of Brainard Avenue, Port Monmouth, and charged him with for obstructing the administration of law.

Young was released pending a court date and Weber was held at the Monmouth County Correctional Institution, Freehold, on $50,000 bail, set by Judge Richard Thompson.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? The same guy who got busted 3 months ago for drugs and 46,000. in cash was arrested again with drugs. The judge let him out on bail again. What is wrong with this judge?

It's outrageous that he was out on bail. I saw the damage Sunday morning, one block from Primetime Nursery School - unbelievable. Lock him up forever - he cannot and will not be rehabilitated. He is a threat to the community, period.

how is this man a threat? theres worse people in belford.and im sure he didnt plan on hitting a pump none of the less one block away from prime time nursery school. im pretty sure everyone gets bail unless they murdered someone and ummm lets see he didnt murder any one so for real people get your grandma panties out of your asses. he oviously has a drug problem and needs to get help not jail time. and what crime is it to have 46,000 in your house? all the chinese people do it.so lets lock them all up.nosey ass people yous should all know he owns 10 houses and collects rent.stop being jealous cause yous are broke sitting home on your computers being so nosey in everyones business..and if they dnt keep posting bail for him who else will pay middletown police their pay checks.

is this person for real defending this drug addict?. how is he a threat? HE'S A DRUG DEALER. what if he hit a person instead of a pump? u really think he knew what he hit? btw how did he get those 10 houses u brag about? by selling drugs to the young people in this town. obviously ur defending him cause ur family or need him out to sell you some drugs. otherwise there is no way to defend who and what he is. no sane person would want something like that living near them. word around town is he lost his kids because he couldnt stop selling and using. sounds like a misunderstood person to me. yeah right. stop defending him it makes u look like an idiot. the only help he needs is a jail cell.

Are you kidding me? This guy is a drug dealer. I bet if he hit your parked car you would care a little bi more. He doesnt have a drug problem just a money problem. He sells to the addicts who then break into people's houses to fuel their addiction. And your bail comment. Bail doesnt pay a salary. Bail is returned to the person once they appear in court.
