PERTH AMBOY – Police arrested a 52-year-old Perth Amboy man outside his Inslee Street home on Thursday and charged him with possession of heroin with the intent to distribute.
Segundo Villanueva-Matos was also charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of The Edmund Hmieleski School for Early Childhood Development. Judge Maria Del Valle-Koch set bail at $50,000 with no 10 percent option.
