Two from Neptune Nabbed in Monmouth County Drug Bust

Two Neptune men await court processing following narcotics raids at their homes that investigators say yielded heroin, cocaine, prescription meds, steroids and more.

Lovester Wright, 39, was apprehended following a warrant search at 707 Tide place. Investigators seized more than a half-ounce each of powder and crack cocaine, and a prescription drug known as clonazepam.

A second search at 704 Doris Avenue resulted in the apprehension of Keith Collins, 38, and the recovery of more than a half-ounce of heroin, plus cocaine, methamphetamines, anabolic steroids and packaging material.

Wright is charged with two second-degree counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, and three third-degree possession counts. He is being held in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution in Freehold, with bail set at $200,00 and no option for release on payment of 10 percent.

Collins faces a first-degree charge of maintaining a controlled dangerous substance production facility, a second-degree charge of possession of heroin with intent to distribute, three third-degree counts of pssession with intent to distribute controlled dangerous substances, and four third-degree possession counts. His bail in Freehold was set at $480,000 with no 10-percent option.

The arrests ensue from what authorities say is a two-month-old probe into drug activity in Monmouth County.
