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.
