The Brick police department’s Drug Enforcement Unit and Selective Enforcement Unit served a search warrant in the Lake Riveria section of the township Friday, executing a search warrant that police said was the result of a drug distribution investigation that spanned several weeks.

Officers raided the home, the address of which was not disclosed in a statement from police, at 4:50 p.m. Friday. According to Capt. Vincent Pacitti, several bags of marijuana – under 50 grams – packaging material and $260 were seized during the warrant service.

Garrett Nilan, a 23-year-old Brick resident, was arrested and charged with distribution of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. Nilan was not able to post $25,000 bail and was transported to Ocean County Jail. He was not listed as an inmate in the jail on Saturday.

    Waste of police resources. A few bags of weed from a small time dealer? Gimme a break. It’ll be legal everywhere soon. Just let it go and focus on real problems.

      Real problems are those that threaten to kill people and blow up buildings. However, not being pot dealers also, bail for armed threats to the public go for tne cents on the dollar, or $10,000 bail with a 10% option. I guess the community isn’t as concerned about dying from gun violence as they are about a harmless high from weed.

        And keep in mind- marijuana is a plant. It grows naturally. All this for something as old as life on Earth. STOP THE WAR ON DRUGS!

    Legalize all drugs is what you failures in life say while the Hasidic kids thrive and the Asian kids become doctors…..white culture is doomed by white trash loosers

      Locking kids up in the prison system for a harmless plant is the best way to make sure they never thrive, moron. You’re whining about a problem you have created, which is typical of you right wing idiots. All you do is create problems and then whine about it. You people need to lose any right to vote. You have done enough harm along with the rest of your inferior Babyboomer generation- just shut up and stop making the world worse.
