Active warrants lands two in County Jail

PARSIPPANY — Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Patrol Officer E. Elston observed a 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 fail to properly signal a lane change and conducted a motor vehicle stop on Sunday, January 27 at 5:25 p.m.

Officer Elston spoke to the driver, Lee Christiansen, 36, Wharton, and passenger Justin Sarno, 31, Parsippany, who initially gave officers a false name.

After a brief investigation, officers determined that they both had active warrants for their arrest.

Mr. Christiansen was also found to be in possession of a hypodermic needle. They were both placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters for processing.

Mr. Christiansen was charged with Possession of a Hypodermic Needle, a Disorderly Persons Offense.

Mr. Sarno was charged with Hindering Apprehension, a Disorderly Persons Offense.

They were both transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility pending their initial court dates.

Editor’s Note: A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent until he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
