Bergen County officials announced the arrests of Mr. Jaycomm Grave Ramos, 28, Philadelphia, Pa. and Mr. Eshaniel Moyano, 20, Philadelphia, Pa. on drug, aggravated assault and resisting arrest offenses.
According to Bergen County authorities, on October 5, during a narcotics investigation, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force conducted a search of a black 2012 Honda Pilot in Ridgefield.
Authorities report that the search revealed an electronically operated hidden compartment containing nine kilograms of suspected cocaine. One additional kilogram of suspected cocaine was located in a backpack on the back seat, for a total of ten kilograms.
Officials say the driver, Mr. Ramos, and front seat passenger, Mr, Moyano, were both placed under arrest.
During his arrest, Mr. Ramos attempted to flee the scene on foot and resisted arrest by attempting to disarm one detective, while biting the hand of another, according to officials.
Authorities say Mr. Ramos and Mr. Moyano were remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending their first appearances in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
Prosecutor Mark Musella states that the charges are merely accusations and that the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The investigation is active and ongoing.
