Ocean County drug crackdown continues – two arrested in Waretown
A search of a Waretown house leads to a trove of prescription pills, and the occupants are charged with dealing them.
Todd Faulch, 43, and Desiree Rakoski, 52, each faces nine counts related to possession and distribution of Oxycodone and Xanax, according to information from the office of Ocean Counthy Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato.
They were placed in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, with bail for each set at a full $75,000.
The disclosure by the Prosecutor's Office is the third in as many days related to arrests of suspected drug pushers in the county.
Detectives of the Prosecutor's Special Operations Group, Southern Enforcement Unit, and Ocean Township police gathered information leading to surveillance of a Dock Road house.
Investigators executed the search warrant August 5, finding the tablets and marijuana, authorities said.
The Prosecutor's Office issues the reminder that criminal charges are accusations, and that defendants are presumed innocent unless, and until, found guilty in a court of law.
