MOUNT OLIVE — Township police arrested a Budd Lake man on drug charges after initially responding to a motor vehicle burglary Monday night.

Joseph Lieb, 20, was arrested and charged after police received a call from a resident at 11:37 p.m. Monday alerting them to a burglary in progress.

When Officer Andrew Spotts responded to the vehicle, the suspect had already fled the scene, police said. Spotts and Sgt. William Gremmo then contacted the Morris County K9 unit, which responded and tracked the suspect to a residence on Washington Street in Budd Lake.
