New Jersey police arrest 24 people during drug sweep

A year-long investigation involving the New Jersey State Police and more than 20 local police departments has led to the arrests of 24 individuals and the takedown of a major drug distribution network. The arrests were made on Dec. 19 when police executed search warrants at a warehouse on Park Avenue in Manalapan and a Monmouth Executive Airport hangar. The searches are said to have led to the seizure of about 1,100 pounds of marijuana and more than 6,000 flavored THC vaporizer cartridges. Police put the street value of the seized drugs at about $2 million.

New Jersey drug investigation leads to seizures and arrests

Prosecutors in New Jersey say that an investigation of heroin distribution in Middlesex and Somerset Counties that involved multiple agencies has led to more than two dozen suspects being arrested. Representatives of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office and the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office made the announcement on Nov. 15. The 53-year-old North Brunswick resident whom police believe was the leader of a large drug trafficking operation has been charged with promoting organized crime, possession of drugs with the intent to distribute, operating an illegal drug manufacturing facility and conspiracy to distribute drugs.

Strict drug laws could put teens behind bars for dealing

Though most people think of drug dealers as adults who meet buyers covertly in dark alleys, the law suggests otherwise. Teenagers in New Jersey and across the United States can be charged with drug dealing for simply sharing a prescription drug or giving a friend marijuana in the park after school. If a teenager gives a friend a drug and the friend ends up dying from an overdose, the teen could be charged with homicide.
