Bergen County authorities reported the arrest of Mr. Sadar Habib, 21, of Rutherford, on weapons, money laundering and drug-related charges. 

According to Bergen County officials, on November 12, during a narcotics investigation, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force and the East Rutherford Police Department executed a search warrant at SARDAR HABIB’s residence.
