The drug bust was conducted by the Parsippany Police Department Special Enforcement Unit. Law enforcement opened an investigation earlier this year after learning of drug distribution in Morris County.
Parsippany detectives eventually obtained a search warrant for a residence on Benedict Drive in Jefferson, New Jersey. When police searched the house, they allegedly discovered large quantities of drugs, including three pounds of marijuana, 373 Xanax pills, and 25 Oxycodone pills. Police officers also reportedly seized more than $12K in cash believed to represent the proceeds of illegal drug sales.
Additionally, detectives allegedly found items that had been reported stolen during a burglary at another Parsippany NJ residence.
Authorities arrested three people in connection with the drug bust. Two of the suspects were charged with multiple drug offenses, including simple possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and illegal possession of prescription drugs.
A third suspect was placed under arrest and charged with burglary and possession of stolen property.
