YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Investigators seized cocaine, Ecstasy and psiocybin mushrooms while arresting a Cliffside Park man who they said was selling the drugs from his home.

A Bergen County Regional SWAT team led a raid on the Wilfred Terrace corner house on Friday following a joint investigation involving Cliffside Park and Fort Lee police and the county prosecutor’s Narcotic Task Force that began earlier this month, borough Police Chief Richard Gaito told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Their key suspect, 35-year-old Roberto Colon, was taken into custody, as were three others — two of whom Gaito said were buying drugs.

A fifth suspect, John Colon, remained at large this morning, he said.

In addition to various drug charges, Roberto Colon was charged with child endangerment “based on the fact that [he] distributed narcotics while a juvenile was in the home,” the chief said.

He remained held on $50,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
