SADDLE BROOK, N.J. -- A suspected drug dealer had several bricks of heroin, along with crystal meth, cocaine, Molly, prescription pills and Ketamine in his car when Bergen County Narcotic Task Force members stopped him in Saddle Brook, authorities said this afternoon.

A judge ordered Paul Pirruccio, 42, of Boonton, held on $125,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said detectives obtained a search warrant for Pirruccio's car and found:

10½ ounces of crystal methamphetamine;four bricks of heroin;five ounces of cocaine;

a little over two ounces of Molly (MDMA);20 grams of Ketamine;hundreds of "various" prescription pills;an undisclosed amount of GHB;

a digital scale;|baggies used to package drugs.

Armed with another warrant, they found nearly a pound of marijuana, four more bricks of heroin and more Ketamine, crystal meth and prescription pills at his home, the prosecutor said.

They also seized $36,323 in alleged drug proceeds, he said.

Authorities charged Pirruccio with separate counts for each of the drugs, Molinelli said.

He thanked the Bergen County Sheriff's K-9 Unit, the Morris County Prosecutor’s and Sheriff's offices and the Boonton Police Department.
