East Rutherford detectives teamed up with federal Homeland Security agents to arrest a Newark man who they said was carrying a pound and a half of heroin, a loaded gun and hollow-point bullets during a controlled traffic stop.

George A. Munoz, 30, remained held on $167,500 bail in the Bergen County Jail after Police Chief Larry Minda said they found the .40-caliber handgun, ammo and heroin Wednesday.

He is charged with distributing heroin, possession of drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of hollow-point ammunition and two illegal weapons possession counts.
