Nasim Bhatti, 37, was stopped at Marginal and Ridge roads in Rutherford for doing 44 miles an hour in a 25mph zone last Friday night, Capt. John Valente told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and no had no registration or insurance for the 2007 Nissan, he said.

Bhattai first tried to claim he got the drugs from a company he worked for six years ago, but “the expiration dates on the bottles was 2017,” Valente said.

Charged with illegal drug possession and distribution counts, Bhatti posted $100,000 bail and was released yesterday from the Bergen County Jail pending grand jury action.
