A Drug Raid Yields Large Heroin Stash… and a Sword

Dr. Jeffrey Berman, MD By May 27, 2018

Though we are often much more interested in discussing more serious news as well as things like the top rated drug rehab centers in New Jersey, occasionally we come across a story that’s, for lack of a better word, odd. Recently, during the search of a residence in Cape May County that came after an investigation into possible heroin distribution, authorities looking through the residence ended up finding exactly what they thought they would find… and a little more.

Not only did the raid turn up over “300 bags” of the illegal substances (mostly heroin and marijuana) that they figured they would find, but they also seized a sword during the process. Worst of all, the suspects tried using a minor to hide their stash of drugs, quickly taking this story from uniquely odd to potentially tragic.

 

VILLAS – Two Tampa Avenue residents were arrested April 20 and charged with heroin distribution.

According to an April 23 joint release from Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland and Lower Township Police Chief William Mastriana, Michael Hamilton, 43, and Judith Hamilton, 63, were arrested at the end of a cooperative investigation between the Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Task Force and Lower Township Police Department Detective Division.

The Hamiltons were arrested during the execution of a court-authorized search warrant of their Tampa Avenue residence in Villas.

The search warrant resulted from an investigation targeting both the Hamiltons who were allegedly selling heroin from their residence. Click Here to Continue Reading
