Matawan resident Vincent Abate, 28, was indicted by the Monmouth County Grand Jury last week on a drug possession charge out of Manalapan Township.
Abate was arrested by Manalapan police on June 9 and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
Police said they found Abate to be in possession of 15 wax folds of heroin. Abate was indicted on this charge last week.
An indictment is a formal charge and not a conviction. A defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty in court.
