Union NJ, the New Jersey State Police have arrested Yazeed Shareef, 24, of Lindenwold, N.J., Kobie Harrison, 23, Nasir McQueen, 23, and Nyceem Corbit, 21, all of Philadelphia, P.A., and seized guns, hollow-point ammunition, high-capacity magazines, and drugs during an investigation that began after a State Trooper encountered one of the men walking on the New Jersey Turnpike in Union County.

On January 13, at 10:35 p.m., Trooper Michael Encarnacion from Troop “D” Newark Station located a pedestrian walking northbound on the inner roadway shoulder at milepost 100.3 in Elizabeth. Trooper Encarnacion stopped to assist the pedestrian, identified as Yazeed Shareef, who informed him that his vehicle ran out of gas a short distance away. While assisting Shareef, Trooper Encarnacion discovered he was in possession of a loaded .45 caliber handgun. Shareef was arrested without incident and transported to Newark Station for processing.
A short time later, troopers located Shareef’s vehicle at milepost 99.5 along with Harrison, McQueen, and Corbit inside. During the ongoing investigation, troopers discovered a .28 caliber handgun, hollow point ammunition, two high-capacity magazines, brass knuckles, heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. As a result, Harrison, McQueen, and Corbit were arrested.
Yazeed Shareef, Kobie Harrison, Nasir McQueen, and Nyceem Corbit were charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of hollow point ammunition, possession of large capacity magazines, possession of a firearm while in possession of CDS, possession of CDS, possession with intent to distribute CDS, and possession of drug paraphernalia. All four were lodged in the Essex County Jail pending a detention hearing.
Charges are mere accusations, and the accused are considered innocent until proven guilty.
