A South Jersey man who was under surveillance for four months was arrested after being pulled over with a massive stash of heroin, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri announced today.

Mercer County detectives followed 36-year-old Miguel Reimer, of Florence, in his 2010 Honda Pilot to New York City on Friday, July 12, where he picked up a supply of heroin, police said.

As Reimer returned along the stretch of the NJ Turnpike within the Mercer County area, officers pulled him over without incident.

A sergeant and his K9 partner searched the SUV, which had 675 bricks of heroin inside a hidden compartment in the center console, Onofri said.

A few days later, on July 15, police searched Reimer’s apartment in the Roebling section of the township and found another 65 bricks — or 3,250 bags — of heroin inside the stove.

The total amount of heroin recovered from the SUV and apartment has a street value of $148,000.

In addition to the drugs, detectives seized a high-end men’s shoe collection estimated to be worth about $30,000, plus Reimer's Honda Pilot and 2017 Dodge Challenger, Onofri said.

Reimer also had 13 Percocet pills and $317 in cash on him at the time of his arrest.

He faces first-degree drug charges and being held at the Mercer County Correction Center pending a detention hearing.
