Eight Suspects Snagged in Brick Township Drug Raids
A series of warrant searches from May 1 through June 4 in Brick Township yield massive amounts of heroin, marijuana, prescription drugs and cash, say township police.
Authorities did not disclose background on the raids, but they say all were executed by the township's Drug Enforcement Unit and Special Emergency Response Team (S.E.R.T).
Police say they found 10 pounds of marijuana in a search of a Lancaster Avenue house that led to the arrests of township resident Michelle Haynes, 21, and Andrew Mazza, 26, of Brooklyn. They face two possession-related counts. U.S. Postal Service inspectors and Ocean County investigators assisted, police said.
Karin Abrahamsen, 32, was charged with heroin distribution, possession, intent to distribute and possession of suboxone after a raid of a home on Cherrywood Circle.
Heroin, suboxone, and $450 were seized in a search of a Harding Drive dwelling that resulted in the arrest of Carrie Caso, 23, authorities said.
A search of a Rita Court house led to the seizure of 100 bags of heroin, oxycodone and $400, and the arrest of Zachary Rosenfelt, 24.
Karon Reid, 24, was arrested at a house on Kitty Court on charges of cocaine possession and intent to distribute. Police say they uncovered $2,400 along with the drugs.
A warrant executed on Whitethorn Court resulted in the arrests of Ke Wang, 20, and Thomas Moriarty, 21, on several counts related to possession of drug paraphernalia, marijuana possession and intent to distribute. Police didn't quantify the amount of weed that was seized, but noted the seizure of $650.
The arrestees in each case were released on summonses to await court proceedings.
