Massive drug sting in New Jersey results in multiple arrests

A major drug and weapon sting operation resulted in the arrests of 27 people in Somerville, New Jersey. The bust involved heroin trafficking near Franklin Township and New Brunswick.

After a five-month investigation, multiple individuals were arrested following a collaborative effort between the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office of Organized Crime and the Narcotics Task Force. The agencies had discovered that the individuals had been cycling through a distribution and supplier chain, moving heroin throughout several New Jersey counties, including Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth, Middlesex and Somerset.

The county prosecutor claims one of the defendants had been living with a female companion, who had been colluding in carrying out his drug business. At the time of his arrest, the 29-year-old suspect was driving with another female companion and her two minor children riding in the vehicle. He had enlisted her aid in the distribution of narcotics from a residence.

Search warrants from the Superior Court were executed at four of the separate homes and residences of the conspirators, resulting in multiple arrests and the seizure of a defaced 45-caliber handgun and a 40-caliber STI handgun, which had been allegedly stolen.

Arresting offers also seized marijuana, drug paraphernalia and drug packaging. The 29-year old man was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, possession of a defaced firearm and possession of heroin with intention to distribute.

Two more people, ages 42 and 40, were charged with intention to distribute heroin, along with possession of a firearm.

According to a statement issued by arresting officials, the men had conspired to distribute heroin to multiple counties in New Jersey. The sting ended the operation with the arrest at the suspects' homes.

If you or someone you know has been arrested on charges of drug possession with the intent to distribute, you may be implicated in other serious charges such as conspiracy, possession of a weapon or money laundering. At times like this, many factors need to be considered. It is in your best interest to seek out legal guidance, as your charges may lead to significant penalties.
