Two California men have been arrested for smuggling drugs (allegedly) along the New Jersey Turnpike.


Does all this talk of Cranbury and Mayflower have anyone else wanting to make a Thanksgiving joke?

The Mayflower truck (owned by Piedmont Moving Systems of San Jose, California) was on the Turnpike yesterday (Tuesday) around 4:00PM authorities pulled the truck over for inspection in a routine traffic stop. The driver didn’t stop. In fact, he lead a small police chase during which he struck and damaged a trooper’s car. – One of the troopers did sustain a minor injury during the arrest.

The truck eventually pulled over, and the police were able to get a warrant. After a search was conducted, authorities found a large amount of crystal meth as well as heroin and a handgun in the sleeper.

Paul Yeargin (43) and Anthony Brewer (39) are currently being held with a $600,000 bail at Middlesex County Jail. According to Lt. Stephen Jones both men have been charged with possession with intent to distribute.
