Brick Township police said their Street Crimes Unit executed warrants on two residences and a car, which turned up a cache of numerous drugs, including 200 wax folds of heroin.
The searches took place Oct. 7. at two residences, one on Greenville Drive, and the second on 3rd Street in the Laurelton Mobile Home Park, said Capt. Keith Reinhard. The third warrant was executed on a vehicle. The investigation was the result of complaints from several concerned citizens who suspected drug sales were occurring out of the two homes, Reinhard said.
The execution of the warrants resulted in two arrests and the seizure of approximately 200 wax folds of heroin packaged for resale, assorted drug paraphernalia, hypodermic syringes, and quantities of Suboxone and Adderall.
Rachel O’Brien, 36, of Brick, was charged with possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, and distribution of heroin. O’Brien was lodged in Ocean County Jail, but was not listed as an inmate at the time of publication.
Janet Lombardo, also 36, of Brick, was arrested for possession of heroin, possession of Adderall, possession of Suboxone, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of heroin with the intent to distribute. Lombardo was released on a summons.
The Street Crimes Unit was assisted by the patrol division, K-9 unit, and detective bureau in the operation, Reinhard said.
Photos of the suspects were not available.
