Brick police executed a search warrant early Monday morning at a township condominium unit, seizing cocaine, an illegally-possessed firearm and other items, Sgt. Jim Kelly said.
Officers carried out the search at about 6 a.m. Monday morning within the Maple Leaf Park condominium complex off Herbertsville Road. The warrant was the result of a drug investigation by the Street Crimes Unit, Kelly said, and yielded an “illegally possessed” .40 caliber handgun, two high capacity magazines, ammunition, and over 100 grams of cocaine.
The resident, Daryl Pierce, 50, was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), distributing a CDS, possession of a firearm during a drug offense, paraphernalia, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, unlawful possession of a weapon, high capacity magazines, certain persons not to possess firearms, possession of prescription legend pills, and possession of more than 6-ounces of marijuana.
Pierce was lodged in Ocean County Jail.
