PORT JERVIS, N.J. – Two Port Jervis men and a man from Middletown were busted in New Jersey with 99 bags of heroin, police there said.

A police officer in Fair Lawn stopped a car on northbound Route 208 earlier this month and found the drugs during a search, Sgt. Brian Metzler told Daily Voice.

He arrested the driver, 25-year-old Donald Ostrom of Port Jervis and three passengers – including Patrick Shevlin, 27, also of Port Jervis, and 28-year-old Joseph Mann of Middletown, the sergeant said.

Ostrom, Shevlin and a New Jersey man were released pending a hearing a drug possession charges, he said.

Mann, however, had warrants out of three New Jersey towns, Metzler said. He was charged with drug possession and turned over to Mahwah police.
