YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Detectives who pulled over a known Elmwood Park drug dealer in Lodi found him carrying $2,500 worth of crack and $1,800 in cash, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.

Jasin Penn, 44, was being held on $50,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

Investigators from the prosecutor’s Narcotic Task Force “had reason to believe [that] Penn was making daily crack/cocaine sales to local users in and around southern Bergen County for the majority of his adult life,” Molinelli said.

Stopping him just before 5 p.m. yesterday, they found the crack and cash, the prosecutor said.

Penn last year was charged with violating the provisions of the state’s Intensive Supervision Program after being arrested on heroin distribution charges, records show.

An arraignment was scheduled for Monday.
