Berlin New Jersey police recently arrested two women accused of possessing a large quantity of illegal drugs, including cocaine, heroin, and prescription drugs.
The arrests were made at the Red Carpet Inn, a motel located in Berlin, NJ.
Berlin detectives became aware of the suspects’ alleged illegal drug activity at the motel when they conducted a traffic stop on a man with an active warrant. The man told police that the suspects were selling drugs at the Berlin NJ motel.
The Berlin Police Department and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office worked together to investigate the suspects and were able to secure a search warrant for the suspects’ room at the motel.
While searching the motel room, Berlin NJ police officers allegedly discovered a large amount of drugs, including 93 bags of heroin, 35 containers of both crack cocaine and powder cocaine, five Xanax pills, and 10 ecstasy pills. The cocaine and heroin had reportedly been packaged for distribution.
The two suspects were arrested at the scene and charged with a number of drug crimes, including possession of cocaine, possession of heroin, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute heroin, and illegal possession of prescription narcotics.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the two suspects were moved to the Camden County Jail. Both suspects will be required to make appearances in Camden County Superior Court at a later date to address the very serious criminal charges.
