Jermaine Johnson arrested in undercover drug operation in Ramsey

Jermaine Johnson arrested in undercover drug operation in Ramsey

Bergen County authorities have arrested a Spring Valley, N.Y., man on drug charges after an undercover operation.

Jermaine R. Johnson, 27, was arrested Aug. 2 after a foot chase near Route 17 in Ramsey, according to authorities.

The arrest followed a cooperative investigation by the prosecutor's narcotics task force and Ramsey police. They contend that an undercover detective bought small amounts of crack cocaine from Johnson on July 7 and July 19 in the parking lot of a Houlihan's restaurant on Route 17 North.

On Aug. 2, an undercover officer had again arranged to meet Johnson there, to buy a single ounce of cocaine. When the officer arrived, though, Johnson called on his cell phone and asked to change the meeting location. He called again from a nearby Exxon station.
