An investigation by the Brick Township Police Street Crimes Unit into drug activity led to the issuance of search warrants in surrounding towns. The first warrant was served in Toms River, and the second warrant was served in Lakewood, with a third being conducted on a vehicle being used by two of the suspects. Several agencies and units assisted the Street Crimes Unit, including the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Narcotics Strike Force, the Lakewood Police Street Crimes Unit, the Toms River Police Selective Enforcement Team, Ocean County Sheriff’s Officers and the Brick Police K-9 Unit.
As a result of the investigation and ensuing searches, six people were arrested for drugs and paraphernalia, including cocaine, marijuana and prescription medication (Tramadol).
Pablo Garcia Jr. (28 years old of Toms River) was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, possession of Tramadol and Obstructing Administration of Law.
