On July 12, 2014, 21-year old Kayla L. Talmadge of Sussex Borough, was arrested for possession of three separate prescription legend drugs as well as possession of hypodermic needles.
Lt. Jeffrey Smith and Officer Babcock responded to a suspicious persons call on Rutherford Ave near the intersection of Cummins Street when they observed a male and female party matching the caller’s description along Rutherford Ave traveling toward Main Street.
After a brief discussion with both parties, Lieutenant Smith observed a hypodermic needle protruding from the female’s clothing. Further investigation and search of Talmadge’s person yielded three prescription legend drugs (Carisoprodol, lorazepam, and Naloxone) not prescribed to Talmadge as well as an additional hypodermic needle. Talmadge was also found to have active warrants out of Franklin Borough, Newton, and Kinnelon Borough in Morris County totaling over $1,500.00.
Talmadge was charged with three counts of Possession of a Prescription Legend Drug and Possession of a Hypodermic Needle. Talmadge was turned over to the Kinnelon Borough Police Department and transported to Morris County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail.
