City police were called Thursday to the New Community Corporation complex after complaints about a man selling drugs in the area, according to Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose.

Police arrested Furad Fleming, 18, near Hayes Street and 15th Avenue, and found he had 95 glassine envelopes of heroin along with $154, according to the public safety director. Fleming was charged with various drug-related offenses, including possession with the intent to distribute drugs within 1,000 feet of a school.

In a statement, Ambrose said police pulled over a car Fleming was in Feb. 12, also in the city's Central Ward, where they found him with 548 glassine envelopes, 18 vials of cocaine, a plastic bag of marijuana and $380. Fleming was also charged with drug distribution offenses in that arrest.

The status of both cases was not immediately clear. Fleming was released from the Essex County jail Saturday, according to county corrections department records.
