Handgun, $50k in Heroin Not Enough to Keep Gang Member in Jail under New Jersey Bail Reform

1 min read

Bail reform has failed another New Jersey community this week as the South Plainfield Police Department watched a gang member they arrested hours before walk out of court without bail.

Omar R. Perkins, 23, was released from Middlesex County Jail on 1/27/2017 pursuant to the new Bail Reform Law.

Perkins, a G-Shine Bloods Gang Member, was arrested on 1/20/2017 after a court ordered search warrant was executed at his residence which resulted in the seizure of over $50,000.00 worth of heroin and a Hi-Point 9mm handgun.

Perkins was charged with Certain Persons Not to Possess Weapons, Possession of CDS with Intent to Distribute, Possession of CDS, Possession of a Weapon during a Drug Distribution Scheme, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Perkins was arraigned today in accordance to new bail reform regulations. Despite the efforts of The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office to keep Perkins detained in the County Jail, a Superior Court Judge ordered that Perkins be released over the Objection of the Prosecutor.
