Heroin, crack, bat in car lead to charges in Manchester drug probe
Forty-six bags of heroin, two grams of crack and a baseball bat in a car land the two occupants of the vehicle in hot water in Manchester, according to township police.
Dandre Tubbs, 29, of Manchester, and Sara McCanna, 23, of Forked River, face an array of drug-related charges following a Thursday search of the car amid a drug investigation in Crestwood Village, police said.
According to police, members of the Narcotics Enforcement Team (NET) on a surveillance detail watched what appeared to be a deal, and stopped the car at about 2 PM on Route 530 near Township Line Road.
Officers said that they found the drugs and the bat in the car, along with syringes and drug-related items.
Tubbs faces eight charges related to possession of heroin, cocaine, syringes and drug paraphernalia, intent to distribute, weapons possession, and hindering apprehension. McCanna is charged with possession of syringes and drug paraphernalia.
Both were released to await court appearances. Officers impounded Tubbs's car, pending forfeiture.
