ELIZABETH—An Elizabeth man was found guilty of third degree possession of cocaine, announced Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow.
After a two day trial and about an hour of deliberations, a Union County Jury found Stevie Roman, 28, guilty following his arrest on Sept 27, 2008, said Assistant Prosecutor Gregory Fleming, who handled the case.
Police arrested Roman near Jefferson Park after they observed him placing a bag of cocaine under a brick near a fence on the corner of Anna Street and Linden Street, said Fleming.
He faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced on Nov. 6 before Union County Superior Court Judge James C. Heimlich.
