Bucks County Traffic Stop Leads To $4M Drug Bust; NJ Restrictions Ease Fri.; Johnson/Johnson Vaccine
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A regular traffic stop in Bucks County last week led to a huge $4 million drug bust. Police pulled over a Jeep driving erratically on Dublin Pike in Bedminster Township on January 29 around 11:30 p.m. 28-year-old Christian Ochoa of Texas and 28-year-old Edith Rodriguez Cardenas of California have been arrested for intent to sell drugs. Inside the vehicle, police found about $1 million worth of heroin/fentanyl, and cocaine plus cash, cellphones, and a gun. Police were then led to a tractor-trailer owned by Ochoa that had been driven from California to Allentown. There was about 10 kilograms of heroin/fentanyl inside the trailer worth $3 million.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced on Wednesday, 1/3, some relaxed restrictions for some indoor businesses. Restaurants, gyms, casinos, salons, and barbershops can increase their capacity from 25% to 35%. That is only a marginal increase, maybe an extra table in a cafe or chair in a salon. Restaurants will be allowed to stay open past 10 p.m., which could have a bigger effect than the 10% larger capacity. Religious, political, and entertainment events can increase from 25% to 35%, with a max of 150 people. Those include weddings, funerals, memorial services, and performances, etc. These go into effect Friday, 2/5, 8 a.m.

Johnson & Johnson asked the FDA for an emergency use authorization for its single dose coronavirus COVID-19 vaccine. An independent panel of advisers will hold a hearing on the vaccine, just like Pfizer and Moderna went through in December, and make a recommendation to the FDA on its safety and efficacy. J&J released preliminary results from its clinical trial last week. The vaccine has proven 66% effective at preventing moderate to severe COVID-19, but 85% protective against the most serious symptoms. The 66% number was for the entire global trial. It was 72% effective in the U.S. The Department of Health and Human Services has a deal with J&J for 100 million doses, with an option for 200 more. This vaccine, in addition to being one dose instead of two, does not have to be kept at freezing temperatures, only a regular refrigerator is necessary. Another approved vaccine will improve the roll out of vaccinations across the country.
