According to authorities, the three suspects were arrested after a five-month-long investigation by members of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Suburban Narcotics Task Force.
The investigation culminated in a major raid of a shipping business at 2011 River Road in Camden, NJ.
During the raid, law enforcement reportedly seized more than $200,000 worth of drugs. Among the drugs reportedly discovered by police at the business were four pounds of methamphetamine, almost 2,000 bags of heroin, 11.5 ounces of unpackaged heroin, a vial of liquid Fentanyl, cocaine, pills, and assorted drug paraphernalia.
Police also allegedly seized two loaded large-capacity ammunition magazines.
The three suspects were arrested and charged with several crimes, including first degree maintaining a drug production facility, first degree heroin distribution, second degree conspiring to distribute heroin, third degree possession of cocaine, and third degree possession of prescription drugs, as well as other drug offenses.
Additionally, the suspects have been charged with fourth degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
One of the suspects lives in Camden NJ, the second suspect lives in Marlton NJ, and the third suspect is from Philadelphia, PA.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were taken to the Camden County Jail. Their collective bail amounts total more than $1.5 million.
Law enforcement has already notified Homeland Security in the case because the suspects are allegedly citizens of the Dominican Republic who are in this country illegally.
