Prosecutor: Arrested Heroin Dealer Is Connected To Stafford Man’s Overdose
The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office has announced the arrest of an alleged heroin dealer who authorities say is connected to the drug overdose of a Stafford Township man.
Steven Janson was found dead inside his car, parked on Starboard Avenue in Barnegat Friday.
Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato says the 4 bags of heroin found with the victim, were ultimately traced back to suspect Rasan McGee of Atlantic City, through an undercover operation. Prosecutor Coronato says the undercover operation involved members of the Barnegat Police Department, Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and other investigative agencies. Detectives are reported to have recovered 50 bags of heroin from McGee.
McGee is charged with distribution and possession of controlled and dangerous substances as well as resisting arrest. He is being held in the Atlantic County Jail. Bail is set at $25,000.
