Same Suspect, Same Charges, Second Heroin Arrest Since August 1
Persistence may be good for business, but not when the business is drugs. An Irvington 35-year-old is behind bars in Toms River, charged with dealing heroin in Ocean County for the second time since August 1.
According to information from county Prosecutor Joseph Coronato, Shaun Anderson was apprehended Monday night along with two accomplices, also from Essex County.
Detectives in Coronato’s Special Operations Group identified a 2001 BMS as Anderson’s method of storing and distributing the drug. Around 7 PM Monday, county and local investigators stopped the car on Dover Road in South Toms River.
Inside, say authorities, were Anderson and his wife Ramona Anderson, 40, also if Irvington, and Cailee Jackson 23, of Newark. A search of the car uncovered about 350 doses of heroin and about $1,500 cash.
At the time of his August arrest, nearby in a parking lot on Route 37 at Bananier Drive in Toms River, investigators say they recovered about 3,500 doses and $2,200 from an Infiniti Anderson was driving.
All three suspects are charged with possession, and possession with intent to distribute, heroin. In Ocean County Superior Court, Anderson’s bail was set at $300,000. Ramona Anderson’s bail was placed at $50,000. Jackson’s bail was set at $75,000. None of the three are given the option of release on payment of 10 percent.
