Secaucus Drug Bust

SECAUCUS, NJ – In a significant drug bust, the Secaucus Police Anti-Crime Unit seized a variety of narcotics, including heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and ecstasy, during a search operation on Front Street.

On August 25, 2023, at 2:36 P.M., officers responded to a residence on the 200 block of Front Street, Secaucus, New Jersey, to conduct a follow-up investigation. The search led to the arrest of two individuals on multiple charges.

Edgar Agramonte, 38, of Union City, was discovered in possession of suspected cocaine and fifteen ecstasy pills. Agramonte, who also had an active warrant from Jersey City with a bail set at $2,000, was promptly taken into custody.

In a separate find, Jessica Murphy, 40, of Lake Hopatcong, was found with over twenty grams of suspected methamphetamine, two bags of suspected raw heroin, a quantity of suspected Adderall, and drug paraphernalia. She was subsequently arrested.

Chief Dennis Miller of the Secaucus Police Department praised the efforts of the Anti-Crime Unit. “The Secaucus Police Department remains committed to conducting proactive investigations to rid our Town of dangerous drugs and hold those accountable who intend on distributing them within our community,” he stated. “I commend the hard work of my Anti-Crime Unit and their commitment to bringing these criminals to justice.”

Both Agramonte and Murphy face serious charges. Agramonte has been charged with two counts of Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance. Murphy’s charges are more extensive, including three counts of Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, Possession with the Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, Heroin, and a Controlled Dangerous Substance within 500 feet of Public Housing, as well as Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both are currently held at the Hudson County Jail.

It’s important to note that these charges are merely accusations, and both defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
