Drug, Weapons Raid Rocks Englishtown

The rustic calm of Englishtown is upended as a warrant search of a borough apartment yields a massive stash of mind-bending drugs and cash, say Monmouth County authorities.

Anthony Scarfone, 42, was arrested after a two-month probe that led to Tuesday’s search by the Monmouth County Narcotics Strike Force, a county K-9 team and Englishtown Police, according to information from the office of acting County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni.

Investigators say they seized crystal methamphetamine, Roxycodone, suspected synthetic substances in plastic containers, packaging materials, about $9,500 in cash and a loaded .380-caliber handgun. Authorities say Scarfone’s dwelling was surrounded by pinhole surveillance cameras.

Englishtown Municipal Judge James Newman remanded Scarfone to the county Correctional Institution in Freehold, setting bail at $100,000 with no option for release on payment of 10 percent.

Scarfone faces second-degree charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a handgun in the course of committing a drug offense; third-degree charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of Ecstasy, possession with intent to distribute Ecstasy, and possession of Roxycodone; and a disorderly-persons count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

As of this writing, a defense lawyer had not been arranged.
