Haddon Heights Police Seize Heroin in Alleged Drug Deal
Camden County law enforcement recently seized a large amount of heroin during a drug bust in Haddon Heights, New Jersey.
The Haddon Heights Police Department and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office conducted a joint investigation after receiving information from a police officer who observed “suspicious activity” in the parking lot of a Haddon Heights massage parlor located near two elementary schools. The police officer took a closer look and saw what appeared to be drug paraphernalia, with one suspects allegedly trying to sell illegal drugs to another person at the scene.
The Haddon Heights cop interrupted the alleged drug deal and called for backup, prompting other Haddon Heights police officers and Camden County detectives to show up and investigate further. Meanwhile, the two suspects were detained by law enforcement.
Authorities eventually seized 527 bags of heroin and $2,571 in cash, according to law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation. It is believed that the heroin was going to be distributed throughout Haddon Heights and elsewhere in Camden County, NJ. Moreover, police said that the seized money was likely obtained through illegal drug deals.
The two suspects were placed under arrest and charged with multiple drug offenses. The suspect accused of selling the heroin has been charged with heroin distribution. A conviction on the very serious criminal charges could lead to a lengthy term of incarceration in NJ State Prison.
