An anonymous tipster led Paterson police to a man who they found carrying 120 envelopes of heroin, 20 bags of cocaine and eight bags of Molly, authorities said Wednesday.

Mark A. Johnson, 25, also had $1,659 in suspected drug proceeds seized from him when he was arrested Tuesday night along with a second man, 19-year-old Wilbert Castillo, who was carrying cocaine, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.

Paterson Narcotics Division detectives made the arrests after investigating a tip into drug sales at Park Avenue and E. 18th Street near Paterson Eastside High School, "an area well-known for prior drug investigations and arrests," Speziale said.
