Morris County police recently busted 25 people as part of a crackdown on illegal drug sales.
According to law enforcement, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit/Narcotics Task Force started an investigation into the drug trafficking operation after receiving tips about illicit drugs being distributed throughout Morris County, New Jersey.
Police eventually executed search warrants at several locations in Morris County and Passaic County and arrested a total of 25 suspects, with one suspect remaining at large. Six of the suspects live in Morristown NJ, two suspects live in Flanders NJ, and one suspect lives in Randolph NJ.
During the series of drug raids, police allegedly seized 1,400 folds of heroin, 55 grams of cocaine, and $33,500 in cash. Morris County police also allegedly seized drug packaging materials, handgun ammunition, and 11 cars.
The people believed to be the leaders of the drug trafficking operation are reportedly part of the same family and had bases of operation in Morristown and Dover. Morris County NJ prosecutors said that the suspects “were obtaining a significant supply of heroin and cocaine” and importing the drugs into Morris County for sale “throughout Morristown, Victory Gardens, Dover and surrounding areas.”
