Gloucester Township police arrested 13 people after a two-month “drug house” investigation, per patch dot com. But apparently the house was actually an apartment, not a house. Indeed, detectives and the Gloucester Township Police Special Response Team (SWAT) executed a search warrant at the Fairways Apartment Complex. While at the scene investigating, police arrested 10 people with loitering to obtain or distribute CDS. Additionally, the cops charged three primary suspects with more serious crimes after they seized:
- over 250 bags of alleged heroin,
- a quantity of alleged marijuana,
- a quantity of alleged fentanyl patches,
- 118 alleged prescription pills,
- and over $12,000 in cash.
