Multiple Brick residents and one Toms River resident were arrested after members of the Brick Township Police Department’s Selective Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at a Bethany Lane house, police said.

The July 21 raid came after a monthlong investigation by the department’s Drug Enforcement Unit, Sgt. Neal Pedersen said.

With the help of the SET Team, the DEU searched the residence and recovered 933 wax folds of heroin packaged for distribution, Subutex pills and Alprazolam pills, Pedersen said. The DEU also seized $543 in cash believed to be the proceeds of the illegal activity.

    There’s the problem, two scumbags that our Municipal Judge lets just walk out the door. They prob bailed out the dealer before they went home, then got high again.

    Its a joke and its disrespectful to the cops how these people are just set free.

      When one is CHARGED with a crime, the court still needs to FIND them guilty as charged. This is a timely process. The onus is on the court to SUBSTANTIATE the charges. The person charged with a crime needs time to get an attorney to represent them in court, because there are instances when the person CHARGED is not actually GUILTY of the crime for various reasons. We are all INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty. I’m sure you’ve probably heard this before… I’m just reminding you how DUE PROCESS works here in America… the way our Forefathers wanted it.

        This is the lynch mob crowd. Don’t waste your time explaining stuff. This is a country of cowards that masks its fear in anger. First it was communism, then drugs, terrorism, rich people not having enough money to benevolently create jobs. They’ll surrender that thing known as ‘due process’ in a heart beat to make that fear go away. Civil rights don’t stand a chance in neo-fascist America.

        Due process to drug dealers caught with drugs??

        Your so cute when you get mad.

        You also forgot to scream racism, you must be slacking off.

      • Johnny 1979

        You people would be complaining about something else if drugs weren’t in the news. We would have ten people bitch about the J-walking problem in Brick!

      • J W

        Yeah, summary executions have been illegal for some time- it’s called THE CONSTITUTION. Leave it to the reactionary psychopaths.

      • ThatGuy

        Executions?? We are talking about bail for drug dealers you moron.

        In all fairness, what type of mental illness do you have? I kind of feel like I’m picking on the special kid at school when I talk to you.

        And to continue on the topic of bail, what do you think the judge should have done with the fine young gentlemen?? http://brick.shorebeat.com/2016/07/brick-police-arrest-township-man-in-maple-leaf-park-assault/

      • J W

        It’s called the 8th Amendment idiot. You have a right to a reasonable bail barring proof of flight risk. You must be missing a chromosome not to know that.

      • ThatGuy

        But what about the executions you mentioned?? Dont just ignore the reason I made fun of you.

        And you didnt answer if that scumbag in the article I linked deserved bail.

      • ThatGuy

        Yeah, that argument is invalid.

        Your basically saying there should be no bail system and everyone should just be set free until their court date.

        Please return with something that makes sense.

    933 wax folds of heroin ….How much death could that deliver?

  • Frank Rizzo

    Death penalty cases….they sell death….give them the same punishment…or make them take their own dope and get hooked themselves

  • Spell Check

    Drugs tend to be in areas where the laws are not inforced. Prosecute all drug crimes in brick to the fullest extent to let all druggies and junkies to know we aren’t playing games. You do heroin you do 5 years minimum. The only thing that stops each and every human is the consequences. Slaps on the wrists turn to needles in the arm. Idiots
