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.
