Pair who followed band face drug charges in NJ

Posted: Updated:

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) - Two men who authorities say followed the band Further are facing drug charges in New Jersey.

Police arrested Adam Sacks, 31, of Mount Holly, Vt., and Kyle Lewis, 21, of Catskill, N.Y., after searching their motel room in Tinton Falls.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office says officers found a large quantity of methamphetamine, LSD, marijuana and hashish oil. Police also confiscated more than $51,000, which prosecutors suspect were proceeds of drug sales.

The men had tickets for performances of Further at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel in addition to several other shows by that group that mainly performs Grateful Dead songs.

Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni says he won't tolerate traveling drug dealers who want to follow a band.
