An 18-year-old Brick man is facing charges of drug distribution after police found a bag containing what they described as a “large amount” of marijuana in a vehicle in which the man was riding.

Joseph Boyer, 18, of Brick, was one of five people in the vehicle that was pulled over by members of the Brick police department’s Selective Enforcement Team at about 9:40 p.m. Friday night near the intersection of Brick Boulevard and Cedar Bridge Avenue, Capt. Vincent Pacitti said.

As a result of the stop, a red back pack was located in the rear cargo section of the vehicle, Pacitti said.


“All five of the vehicle’s occupants denied ownership of the bag,” he said.

A search of the bag revealed a “large quantity” of marijuana – over 100 grams – a digital scale, a cell phone and several items of clothing, according to police. After interviewing all of the vehicle’s occupants it was determined that the back pack belonged to Boyer, the rear passenger, said Pacitti.

Boyer was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. Joseph Boyer was not able to post the $20,000 bail and was transported to Ocean County Jail.

    Dear Dumb Ass,
    You don’t drive around with your friends and large quantities of drugs, any drug, that’s just asking to be arrested.

    A quarter pound of grass is a large quantity? $20,000 bail? No threat to the community but if he had threatened to kill someone or blow up someone, his bail would have been $10,000 with a ten percent option. I guess the message here is to sell guns instead of weed.
