15 individuals nabbed on drug charges in New Jersey

A major bust has allegedly nabbed several people believed to be involved in a trafficking ring. Fifteen people were indicted on racketeering, trafficking and drug charges in New Jersey recently. A new story gives more details about the bust and the arrests made. 

A cooperative effort by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies resulted in the arrests of the alleged drug traffickers. Police claim to have found the man in charge of the ring who supposedly ran the operation from his home. Police made an initial arrest of two men in a vehicle that was apparently loaded with cocaine and heroin as the result of the investigation, dubbed Operation Inferno. 

The arrests of the two men led to 13 more arrests. The individuals were in their 20s and 30s and were charged with various distribution and drug charges. The drug operation was alleged to have operated in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with a trafficking point in Puerto Rico. The operation was supposedly responsible for distributing 20 to 30 kilos of the drugs in the local area every month. 

It was not reported whether any of the men had obtained a lawyer after being saddled with the drug charges. In cases such as these, the men are likely considering the best path to have the charges eliminated or reduced. In the U.S., individuals are innocent until proved guilty, and the burden of proof rests upon the prosecutor. Some people will choose to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help them build a strong defense against the charges.
