Four Collared in Little Egg Harbor Heroin Bust

Four people from Little Egg Harbor are charged with heroin possession in a continuing probe of drug activity by Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato.

Thomas Wright, 34; Christine Bartholomew, 29; Dianne Wright, 51; and Peter Piegario, 51, were charged after police say they found 90 bags of heroin during a Thursday traffic stop in the township.

Authorities say Thomas Wright, Dianne Wright and Christine Bartholomew were in the black 2001 Ford pckup during the search on Route 539 near Thomas Avenue. A warrant search of a Route 9 apartment in Little Egg Harbor yielded more heroin, marijuana, about 30 Oxycodone tablets and a digital scale, say investigators.

Bail for Thomas Wright and Christine Bartholomew was set at $50,000 each. Dianne Wright’s and Peter Piegario’s bails were set at $25,000.

Members of Coronato’s new Southern Enforcement Unit took part in the probe with members of the Special Operations Group and police from Little Egg Harbor and Stafford Townships.
