Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina says 25-year-old Johmir Harris of Trenton has been charged with selling drugs after cops "discovered" a brick of heroin, "wedged in his buttocks."

That's more than 50 doses of heroin, according to authorities.

Coffina's office says,

"The arrest resulted from an investigation into the death of a 29-year-old Bordentown Township woman who fatally overdosed last week. The investigation is focused primarily on whether charges are appropriate under New Jersey’s Strict Liability for Drug-Induced Death statute."

Harris has been charged with first-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), third-degree possession of a CDS, third-degree conspiracy, and failure to surrender a CDS to police.

He was taken into custody on November 4th in Bordentown Township and lodged in the Burlington County Jail pending a detention hearing.

The public is reminded that all charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
