EXCLUSIVE: With help from East Rutherford police, the New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force captured a fugitive ex-con from New York who authorities said was carrying two guns and more than a quarter-pound of cocaine.

Marcus Carter, 35, of Staten Island was taken into custody at the Homestead Village/Extended Stay on Route 3 East in East Rutherford, where he’d been staying, borough Police Chief Larry Minda told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Besides the two handguns, he was carrying 123 bags of cocaine, the chief said. That amount could sell for roughly $7,500 on the street.

Carter was being held on $42,500 bail in the Bergen County Jail on charges that include weapons and drug possession, pending extradition to New York.
