PALMYRA — Somerset County sheriff’s deputies seized more than 400 grams of illicit drugs during a routine traffic stop.
According to Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster, deputies stopped a truck for excessive exhaust noise on Route 2 in Palmyra on Thursday morning.
While the deputies were speaking with the driver, 40-year-old Jason Lary, they noticed drug residue and paraphernalia in the truck.
According to Lancaster, when they ran Lary’s license, they were told the license had been revoked on a habitual offender status.
Lancaster said during a search of the vehicle, deputies seized nearly 118 grams of cocaine, 152 grams of fentanyl, 108 grams of crack cocaine, close to 27 grams of methamphetamine, and approximately $4,000 cash.
Lary was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs, one count of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs, and one count of operating after being a habitual offender.
Lary is currently at the Somerset County Jail with bail set at $80,000 cash as well as additional conditions.
He is scheduled to appear in a Somerset County court in August.
