A raid on a condominium unit in the Maple Leaf Park development last Friday led to the arrest of a resident there, police said.

Manuel Worth, 54, was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Capt. Ron Dougard said. The arrest and seizure of the drugs and paraphernalia came after a two month-long investigation by Detectives Brian Lash and Jason Shepherd, with the assistance of the Brick Township Police Department’s Special Emergency Response Team which conducted the search.

Police said they seized more than a half-pound of marijuana, a half-ounce of heroin, and more than five ounces of cocaine from the residence on the 300 block of Sawmill Road. The detectives also recovered drug paraphernalia “related to the distribution of controlled dangerous substances.”
