Phillipsburg police are searching for a 35-year-old town man who was driving a stolen car on Aug. 17 that held more than a half-ounce of heroin and more than an ounce of methamphetamine, the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office reports.
Jonathon Hornbaker, of the first block of Bullman Street, was pulled over Aug. 17 on a traffic violation, Prosecutor Jim Pfeiffer said in a news release. Further investigation revealed the status of the vehicle and the drugs, Pfeiffer said.
Two sets of charges were filed against Hornbaker, who is not in custody, Pfeiffer said.
On Aug. 17, Hornbaker was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, one count of receiving stolen property and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, Pfeiffer said.
On Friday, Hornbaker was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, one charge each for the heroin and the meth, Pfeiffer said.
Police also recovered 21 suspected ecstasy pills, a quarter pound of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $1,520 in cash, Pfeiffer said.
A warrant was issued for Hornbaker’s arrest, Pfeiffer said.
It was not clear if Hornbaker has an attorney. A phone number tied to his current address wasn’t immediately available.
