Joseph Colon, 23, of Newton, is charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance. He is being held at the Sussex County Jail on $15,000 bail.

Police arrested Colon around 10:21 a.m., following a vehicle stop on Sparta Avenue, according to a police department news release.

Four minutes later, 30-year-old Joseph McGlinch and 35-year-old Richard Dobrowolski were arrested after detectives from the Sussex County Guns, Gangs and Narcotics Task Force saw them involved in a drug deal, according to the release.

Police found 10 bags of heroin and a needle on McGlinch, and said that Dobrowolski was in possession of a hypodermic needle.
