Toms River Heroin Bust A Family Affair
The flow of heroin through Ocean County slows just a bit and two brothers from Toms River are under arrest on suspicion of spreading it around.
Robert J. Dello, 27, and Brian Dello, 31, were charged Thursday following a warrant search of their Dallas Drive house by Toms River and Ocean County investigators.
County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford says that authorities found about 100 bags of heroin, some cocaine, syringes and other drug-related items and about $800 cash.
They're charged with possesison of under a half-ounce of heroin, possession with intent to distribute, intent to distribute within a school zone and possession of drug paraphernalia. The elder Dello is also charged with possession of less than a half-ounce of cocaine.
Bail for each was set at $15,000 by Ocean County Superior Court Judge James Blaney.
Toms River SWAT and K-9 personnel assisted in the search, seizures and arrests.
