LINDEN – Police arrested a father and son last week who were allegedly selling marijuana on the south side of Linden, authorities said.
William T. Hall, 52, and William Todd Hall, 27, who both reside separately in Linden, are charged with possession and distribution of marijuana over 50 grams, distribution within a park zone and school zone, and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.
Linden police conducted a two month investigation in response to drug dealing complaints that led to the arrests. On June 27, officers stopped a 2002 Lincoln LS and seized 17 bags of marijuana with an approximate street value of $2,500, as well as the vehicle itself. During a search of William Todd Hall’s residence, they seized an additional amount of marijuana, as well as packaging materials and $300 cash from suspected drug sales.
Both suspects were transferred to Union County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, pending a court date.
The charges against the suspects are merely accusations; they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
