Officer Patrick Becker, checking the registration on a double-parked vehicle at Kearny Ave. and Rose St. at 4 p.m., found that the owner had a suspended license. Becker stopped the car at Rose and Maple Sts., confirmed the identity of the owner-operator and charged Richard Jara, 44, of Kearny, with driving while suspended and failure to surrender a suspended license.
At 6 p.m., the Vice Squad observed Janusz Chytla, 25, of Kearny, riding a bicycle at Chestnut St. and Wilson Ave. Police said they had reason to believe he had been involved in a drug transaction, detained him for questioning and subsequently confiscated 13 folds of heroin, stamped “Aston Martin.” [Editor’s note: Who picks these names?] Chytla was charged with possession of the drug and drug paraphernalia.
At 9:30 p.m., pursuant to an ongoing investigation, Vice arrested Dominique Solise, 23, of Newark, on a charge of engaging in prostitution. Police did not disclose the location of the arrest, but they did disclose her alias, “Nina, Your Favorite Fun Girl.”
