Man Nabbed with Over 500 Oxycodone Tablets

A New Jersey man was arrested on drug charges after authorities caught him with 518 Oxycodone pills in his possession, the Essex County Prosecutor's Office announced Tuesday.

Detectives received a tip that Eric K. Warugongo, 35, of Clark, was selling the tablets at the Pathmark on Lyons Ave. in Irvington.

Authorities seized the Kenyan native's 1994 Cadillac and later searched his Lexingon Blvd. home and found an additional 225 tablets, $2,600 in cash and multiple identification documents.

Warugongo is being held on $150,000 bail at the Essex County Correctional Facility.
