A Toms River Teen is the focus of a three-week investigation into drug activity in Manchester. The conclusion of the probe turned up a veritable candy store of marijuana, steroids, prescriptions drugs and drug paraphernalia of every kind. Manchester officials said more $30,000 in drugs were confiscated, along with weapons and cash.

Police Captain Lisa Parker said the investigation resulted in three court-authorized search warrants of a Squire Village residence in Toms River and two vehicles.

In a written statement, “During the afternoon of August 20, Manchester Township Police officers stopped the Toms River teenager while driving along Route 571 within the township. Subsequent to the stop, the three search warrants were executed by members of the Investigations Bureau.”

As a result of the warrants, officials seized over $23,000 in cash, a sedan, a motorcycle, nearly 5 pounds of marijuana, Oxycodone, steroids, LSD and various prescription medications, pellet guns, stun gun, flare gun, crossbow, brass knuckles, scales, vacuum sealers, and packaging materials consistent with a high level of drug distribution and drug paraphernalia that included bongs, pipes, paper and syringes as well as additional miscellaneous items.

Parker said the teen faces numerous drug and weapons counts, including Possession with Intent to Distribute within 1,000 feet of a School Zone. The Juvenile was  transferred to the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center and the investigation is ongoing.
