Police in Toms River say they recovered 27 bricks of heroin – enough for 1,356 doses – after the department’s Special Enforcement Team conducted a traffic stop on a suspicious vehicle that had been driving around the township.

The incident occurred June 25, said police spokesman Ralph Stocco, and was released publicly Thursday. After they stopped the suspicious vehicle, police stopped a Nissan Altima in the township’s downtown area in which they found the heroin, Stocco said.

The street value of the 27 bricks is about $13,000, according to police.


As a result of the investigation that ensued, Michael Morgan, 28, of Brandies Road in South Toms River, was charged with possession of heroin and possession of heroin with the intent to distribute over one-half ounce.  Morgan’s bail was set at $75,000 cash.  He remains held in the Ocean County Jail.

    See JW….Traffic stops work in reducing the amount of heroin flowing into our towns. Nearly 800 people were killed in our state alone by heroin in 2014 alone. Way more than any amount ever killed by drunk drivers in one single year. And you..you and your liberal friends all make light of this with your anti white, anti Italian comments…and your support for the people who are doing this to our community.

      If only the racist cops were targeting Italians, who are the majority of drug traffickers in the town, this problem would be on the decline. Too bad the white supremacists like you need to ruin everything for you.
