OCEAN TOWNSHIP, Monmouth County - Two Ocean County drug suspects face lengthy charges here, after being confronted by police in a convenience store parking lot Wednesday.
Brady Taylor, 41, of Beachwood, and Kasey Burket, 39, of Manahawkin, are accused of having crack cocaine and drug-related items in their car during the arrest at a 7-11 on Deal Road.
