Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Makes Two Arrests in Drug Investigation

Manahawkin, Toms River residents nabbed in marijuana and hashish bust

Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford has announced the culmination of an investigation into drug activity in the Southern Ocean County area.

"On Dec. 21, 2012, detectives from the Prosecutor’s Special Operations Group, along with detectives from the Stafford Township Police Narcotics Unit and the Barnegat Township Police Narcotics Unit, conducted an investigation into the distribution of marijuana and hashish in the southern Ocean County area," said Ford.

The investigation resulted in the arrest of two Ocean County residents and the seizure of marijuana, hashish and cash. While conducting the investigation, detectives from the Prosecutor’s Special Operations Group, along with members of the Stafford Township Police Narcotics Unit and the Barnegat Township Police Narcotics Unit, conducted a motor vehicle stop on a green Ford Explorer in the area of 197 Route 72 in Stafford Township.

"A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded approximately seven pounds of marijuana, approximately four pounds of hashish and approximately $2,400 in cash," Ford explained.

The following individuals were arrested and charged:

Amber Morris, 25, of 189 Bowspirit Road, Manahawkin, New Jersey. Morris was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana over five pounds with intent to distribute, possession of hashish and possession of hashish over one pound but less than five pounds with intent to distribute. The Honorable Superior Court Judge Francis R. Hodgson Jr. set Ms. Morris’s bail at $35,000, with no ten percent option.

Terrence V. Farley, 30, of 257 Church Road, Toms River, New Jersey. Farley was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana over five pounds with intent to distribute, possession of hashish and possession of hashish over one pound but less than five pounds with intent to distribute. Judge Hodgson set Mr. Farley’s bail at $50,000, with no ten percent option.

Also assisting in the investigation and the motor vehicle stop were members of the Stafford Township Police's K-9 Unit. The media and public are reminded that criminal charges are merely accusations and that these defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Never happen. All they ever get is a slap on the wrist, no deterrent so it will not end. Almost starting not to care anymore. Sad but true.

Pot is great. I can work on it. Drive on it. And enjoy family life while on it. Just like pain killers same thing. But this heroin needs to be off the streets. It's bad news people.

one of the problems with pot dealers is that they don't only sell pot...... By buying seemingly harmless Pot you are contrbuting to their wealth and enhancing their ability to survive through profit....Just a thought.
