In a recent development, Kathryn Jarvis, a 40-year-old resident of Secaucus, was arrested for allegedly selling cocaine from her residence on the 200 block of Front Street. The arrest follows a concerned citizen’s tip-off to the Secaucus Police, prompting an investigation by the Anti-Crime Unit.

Detective Sergeant Matthew Ford, supervising the investigation, led detectives to arrest Andres Marquez, 33, of Milltown, NJ, on March 21, 2024, after he purchased a quantity of cocaine from Jarvis at her residence.

A search warrant was executed on Jarvis’ residence, resulting in the seizure of suspected cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as ledgers and drug paraphernalia suggesting Jarvis was packaging narcotics for street sale.

Chief Dennis Miller praised the community-police partnership, stating, “This arrest is a direct result of the partnership formed by the Secaucus Police and the community.” He emphasized the department’s commitment to investigating all tips and complaints to curtail criminal activity in Secaucus.

Jarvis faces charges including Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance, Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia with the Intent to Distribute. She was lodged in the Hudson County Jail. Marquez was charged with Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance and released pending his court appearance.
