EXCLUSIVE REPORT: “Everyone was tied up,” Little Ferry Police Chief Ralph Verdi said, so he and his son, Officer Dominick Verdi, pursued a tip and found a former Lodi ex-con wanted on a parole violation sleeping in a car this morning at a Route 46 used car lot.
Raymond P. Morgan III, 29, who’d apparently been using heroin, was released from state prison in October 2013 after spending a little more than seven years of a 10-year term for a pair of 2005 armed robberies in Lodi.
Police charged him with possession of drug paraphernalia and turned him over to state Department of Corrections authorities after the 11:50 a.m. arrest.
Morgan, who’d gone AWOL from the U.S. military in 2004 and recently lived in Bloomingdale, was wanted on a DOC no-bail warrant.
