Detective Sgt. Michael Woodrow tells the Asbury Park Press the woman discovered three people inside her Union Beach home Thursday.

Police said the three had a large amount of heroin.

Twenty-four-year-old Thomas Erickson and 23-year-old Brianne O’Brien, both of Keansburg, were arrested. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 24-year-old Lindsay Krick of Hazlet, who police say fled before they arrived.

The three are charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, burglary, obstruction, and drug related charges.

It is not clear if they have retained lawyers.
