Police raid alleged drug manufacturing facility

Prosecutors in New Jersey have announced that four area residents were taken into custody after police searched a Barnegat residence on Jan. 15. A 30-year-old man has been charged with using the home to manufacture drugs and a 36-year-old Toms River woman, a 30-year-old woman and a 29-year-old woman are all facing conspiracy charges. The Toms River woman is also facing a drug possession with the intent to distribute charge after police allegedly discovered narcotics while searching her car.

According to initial media reports, the searches were conducted after a two-month investigation involving the Toms River Police Department and the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Narcotics Strike Force. Officers from the Ocean County Regional SWAT Team provided additional assistance. During the search of the Main Street residence, officers allegedly discovered 1,250 envelopes containing an undisclosed amount of heroin, about 20 grams of cocaine and approximately $1,650 in cash.

After stopping the Toms River woman's car near the intersection of Mule Road and Route 37, police are said to have found an undisclosed amount of cocaine. Reports indicate that the man is being held at the Ocean County Jail and the three woman have been charged and released.

When several defendants are accused of being involved in an ongoing criminal enterprise and the evidence against them is compelling, criminal defense attorneys may suggest seeking a negotiated plea agreement without delay. This is because prosecutors tend to become less lenient when they believe that they already have enough evidence to secure a conviction, which means they generally make more attractive plea offers to defendants who step forward first.
