Robert L. Oliver, 24, of Philadelphia was indicted Thursday by the Hunterdon County Supreme Court for allegedly possessing less than half an ounce of heroin with intent to distribute in Lambertville on Dec. 4, 2014. Grand jurors also presented in a second count that Oliver purportedly conspired to distribute heroin — both counts are considered third degree crimes.

Back on Dec. 9, 2014, Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski, and Lambertville City Police Director Bruce Cocuzza announced the arrests of Robert L. Oliver, along with Rosemary Gonzalez, age 18, and Carlos A. Collazo, age 30, all from Philadelphia.

According to Prosecutor Kearns, “On Thursday, Dec. 4, Detectives from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns, and Narcotics Task Force and the Lambertville City Police Department arrested three defendants and seized 91 glassine packets of suspected heroin.”

Oliver was charged at the time with the two counts above, Collazo was charged with possession of heroin and conspiracy to distribute heroin, and Gonzalez charged with conspiracy to distribute heroin.
