On January 10, 2022 at 3:26 P.M., Police Officer Michael Borrelli stopped a Nissan Altima for speeding on Meadowlands Parkway.

While speaking with the occupants, Police Officer Borrelli developed information that there was a handgun within the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle a Glock 19 9mm handgun loaded with a fifteen (15) round magazine and a round in the chamber, was seized. Additionally, a loaded seventeen (17) round magazine and thirty-one (31) round magazine were also seized. Both magazines were loaded with both hollow point and full metal jacket ammunition. The driver, Jzamere Woods, 21, of Georgia, was arrested without incident.

“This gun arrest is another example of the results of proactive policing efforts by members of the Secaucus Police Department,”  Chief Dennis Miller said. “Possessing a loaded firearm with these high-capacity magazines is testament to the potential dangers our officers are up against.”

Jzamere Woods was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm [2C:39-5b(1)], three counts of Possession of a High Capacity Magazine [2C:39-3j], Unlawful Possession of Hollow Point Ammunition [2C:39-3f(1)] and Unlawful Possession of Handgun Ammunition [2C:58-3.3]. He was lodged in the Hudson County Jail. These charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
