YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Elmwood Park police nabbed a local man who they said was dealing pot and a Lodi couple passing through with heroin in separate busts yesterday.

Joseph Vargas, age 26, was charged with possessing and distributing marijuana last night following a six-week investigation, Police Chief Michael Foligno said this morning. Vargas posted $10,000 bail and was released pending a court hearing.

Several hours earlier, Miguel Thomas, 20, and Rachel Posadas, 19, were released on court summonses after officers who stopped their car on eastbound Route 46 found them carrying 15 bags of heroin, three hypodermic syringes and drug paraphernalia, Foligno said.
