A New Jersey man called "Hammer" was taken into police custody for selling heroin that was labeled as Ebola.

New Jersey was the scene of a strange crime that took place recently. A man named Hammer was convicted of selling heroin on the streets under the name of Ebola. A room in the Ramada Inn was ransacked by the police department and the man was arrested along with his drug cache. 

The dude’s real name was Barnabas Davis and the police had been tipped off about him from certain sources. He was 45 years old and had the nickname of “Hammer”. He had been caught up in the drug trade from the back side environs of the hotel. 

However, the Ramada Inn management confirmed that they knew nothing about this whole deal and they were in fact fully willing to help the police in any way that they could. The police nabbed some 633 packets of heroin along with 40 grams of crack cocaine from his room. The man is definitely in big trouble for now.    

Among the stickers and stamps on the packets of hard drugs were ones that spelt the words “Ebola”. It looks like he was trying to use the name of the deadly virus in his game of subterfuge. As a dealer of death, mister Hammer is going to be in prison for a long time. 

Of the 9,200 people who have contracted the Ebola virus so far over 4,800 have died from the ravaging disease. Most of the deaths have been in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. Davis meanwhile is being held at $300,000 bail in Ocean County Jail. The first man who contracted the Ebola virus died recently. 

The Ebola virus will be treated in a total of three hospitals in New Jersey according to Governor Chris Christie. The designation of certain hospitals for the quarantine and treatment of the infected patients was a smart move by the governor. It shows a very perceptive and quick mind that has seen the dangers of the possible spread of the deadly virus.
