Two Berkeley Men Charged In Lacey With Carrying 'Baggie' Of Oxycodone

Two Berkeley men were charged after a traffic stop this past week in Lacey with carrying Oxycodone and other pills, police said.

According to police: 

On Thursday, February 13, 2014, at 9:29 p.m., Officer Evan Androcy observed a vehicle swerving as it was traveling north on Route 9. Officer Androcy stopped the vehicle on Route 9 near the intersection of Warren Avenue in Lanoka Harbor.

Investigation at the scene led to the discovery of a small plastic baggie containing both Oxycodone pills and Alprazolam pills. The driver, 24-year-old Anthony P. Cipolletti of 47 Harborage Avenue in Bayville, and the passenger, 18-year-old Evan R. Smith of 26 Galleon Court in Bayville, were placed under arrest and transported to Lacey Township Police Headquarters.

Both subjects were charged with the 3rd degree offense of Possession of CDS. Both were released on a summons pending a court date.

Lacey's Finest catching Bayville scumbags!! I hope the judge throws the book at Anthony and Evan. I bet they didn't see that coming now did they? I hope they get what's coming to them, I really do. All these drug dealers will be caught, there's always someone watching who will rat your asses right out. We as residents have to help the police dept. catch these criminals.
Robert Yates February 20, 2014 at 05:00 PM
Your are nuts @Mama. All of these drug dealers will not be caught and this effort is pointless. The only place these drugs can come from is pharmaceutical companies and highly esteemed doctors. They are the drug dealers. Shall we arrest them? It is none of your business and it is none of the town's business what other people wish to put into their bodies, unless they are hurting you. Then it is your concern. Have Tony and Evan harmed you in any way?

Two more Kids, that will not be able to get good jobs. Two more men living home with a parent, because of the poor choices and life style. An epidemic. Jersey Shore is a hot bed for failure.

Robert Yates is probably upset because his 2 dealer friends didn't get to deliver him his fixx for valentines day :)
CJ February 20, 2014 at 10:49 PM
Robert Yates I a freakin nut job....did u ever notice...he comments on everything on here! he really needs to get a life!
Mama February 20, 2014 at 11:25 PM
Yates, I do know one of those kids and I'm glad he got caught with drugs, it's about time he pays for what he was about to do and that was dealing!! And it is my business, this is my town, this is where I live you fricken Idiot, so it does make it my business. And I would like to know, who the hell calls Anthony "Tony"?? When drug dealers, steal from stores it does hurt me and everyone else, the prices go up, more security is needed. Has Anthony or Evan hurt me you ask, no but what they were doing will hurt other parents kids. So why don't you crawl into your little clam shell and maybe you'll get lucky and someone will step on you and crush you to pieces and put you out of your misery.

Great response to Mr Yates from all of you. He obviously has no life and no clue. And you can always depend on him for the most arrogant, senseless and stomach turning comments. He is truly a jerk. I wouldn't give a damn about the drug users if they didn't support their habit by robbing us and become deadly menaces on the road. It certainly IS our business when they drive impaired and kill innocent people or when they enter our homes to steal. Congratulations to Lacey PD for getting them out of our town. Keep up the great work!

I would like to refresh the memories of the people that think berkeley is the source of oxycodone.Just 2days ago a Beachwood women along with a man from Lacey Twp were busted for distributing oxycodone at a Wawa parking lot in Lacey
sandy bottom February 21, 2014 at 07:57 AM
they were most likely leaving lacey after buying drugs there
John Cobb February 21, 2014 at 08:43 AM
A little info from Wikpedia: "The risk of experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms is high if a patient has become physically dependent or addicted and discontinues oxycodone abruptly. Therefore, particularly in cases where the drug has been taken regularly over an extended period of time, use should be discontinued gradually rather than abruptly. People who use oxycodone in a recreational, hazardous, or harmful fashion (not as intended by the prescribing physician) are at even higher risk of severe withdrawal symptoms, as they tend to use higher-than-prescribed doses. The symptoms of oxycodone withdrawal are the same as for other opiate-based painkillers, and may include "anxiety, panic attack, nausea, insomnia, muscle pain, muscle weakness, fevers, and other flu-like symptoms".[14] Withdrawal symptoms have also been reported in newborns whose mothers had been either injecting or orally taking oxycodone during pregnancy.[15] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxycodone
Robert Yates February 21, 2014 at 08:48 AM
@diane, Mama & GRABO155: I would respectfully ask you to re-read my comment. I said their consumption of drugs is none of your concern UNLESS they are hurting you. DUI and robbery would fall under the category of hurting you, so we agree that those acts should be punished. All I am against is criminalizing voluntary consumption of chemicals. Not one of you has addressed this, but rather you have decided to hurl vitriolic insults instead. @Berkley Lifer: while false, that was pretty funny. On Valentine's Day, I got my drugs from the legal dealers over at Caffrey's. Their house cab ain't too bad. We should probably make that illegal too though as it may make Mama more prone to belligerently crushing little clam shells. I'm just trying to get people to think about the issue a little differently so perhaps an effective solution can be found.
John Cobb February 21, 2014 at 08:50 AM
@ Yates, alcoholics are also a scourge on society, let's hope liver failure puts them in an early grave.
sandy bottom February 21, 2014 at 08:54 AM
wow john ,you need a drink
Muff Dyver February 21, 2014 at 08:54 AM
They never gonna get rid of the drugs in Lacey. They take one person down and someone gonna take their place and that's just the way it is. Pills or Herion are not going anywhere. When there is money to be made there is gonna always gonna be someone to take their place. I always like reading about the drug busts on the patch but the reality is that it's not going anywhere and nothing is gonna change. Anyone that's thinks different is needs a brain scan.
Robert Yates February 21, 2014 at 08:56 AM
@John Cobb: you are right that alcoholics are a scourge on society, but I would not wish liver failure upon them, nor would I advance the idea that alcohol should be illegal. I have also heard that alcohol withdrawal is more dangerous than opiate withdrawals from medical perspective. So why is one legal and the other not?
Chief Wahoo February 21, 2014 at 09:06 AM
Where are these drug dealers planting all these poppy plants ???
Robert Yates February 21, 2014 at 09:21 AM
Good question @Chief: perhaps this little passage from Wikipedia will help: "Afghanistan is currently the primary producer of the drug. After regularly producing 70% of the world's opium, Afghanistan decreased production to 74 tons per year under a ban by the Taliban in 2000, a move which cut production by 94 percent. A year later, after American and British troops invaded Afghanistan, removed the Taliban and installed the interim government, the land under cultivation leapt back to 285 square miles (740 km2), with Afghanistan supplanting Burma to become the world's largest opium producer once more. Opium production in that country has increased rapidly since, reaching an all-time high in 2006. According to DEA statistics, Afghanistan's production of oven-dried opium increased to 1,278 tons in 2002, more than doubled by 2003, and nearly doubled again during 2004. In late 2004, the U.S. government estimated that 206,000 hectares were under poppy cultivation, 4.5% of the country's total cropland, and produced 4,200 metric tons of opium, 76% of the world's supply, yielding 60% of Afghanistan's gross domestic product.[94] In 2006, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime estimated production to have risen 59% to 407,000 acres (1,650 km2) in cultivation, yielding 6,100 tons of opium, 82% of the world's supply.[95]" So Chief Paprota is battling heroin on the streets of Lacey while the US government facilitates its production in Afghanistan. Gotta love the good ole USA.
Muff Dyver February 21, 2014 at 09:48 AM
Yates are you serious? Big deal if it's made in Afghanistan. People around here are going to Newark or Trenton.
John Cobb February 21, 2014 at 10:02 AM
Yates should be arrested for treason.
Robert Yates February 21, 2014 at 10:18 AM
@Muff: I was just answering the Chief's quesiton; however I do think it is a big deal that heroin production has exploded in Afghanistan following the US invasion given the draconian enforcement efforts here on a local level. It is a bit ironic to say the least. @John Cobb: are you serious?
Chief Wahoo February 21, 2014 at 10:28 AM
Yates. You have taken the Red Pill...Save your breath. It's a waste of time. You will be fine.
Lisa G February 21, 2014 at 11:28 AM
you people are brutal and have so much anger
Muff Dyver February 21, 2014 at 12:37 PM
Yates all I'm saying is who cares where it comes from, the fact is that it's here and it not going anywhere. One guy gets busted and two are gonna take his spot . That the truth
Chief Wahoo February 21, 2014 at 12:49 PM
War on drugs.....connect the dots MIC....BIG PHARMA....DOCTORS....DEALERS...LAW ENFORCEMENT.....LAWYERS.....COURTS.....JAIL.....CORRECTIONS.... looks like everyone benefits on the war on drugs EXCEPT THE TAXPAYERS
Robert Yates February 21, 2014 at 12:52 PM
@Chief: appreciate it, though I hope it is not a complete waste. But maybe that is wishful thinking. @Muff: I do care where it comes from, but I agree with your point regarding supply:-)
Down On Drugs February 22, 2014 at 08:41 AM
@Robert Yates......You state "it is non of our business what other people wish to put into their bodies, unless they are hurting you". Perhaps you are correct, however, these two dirt bags got arrested because they had "illegal drugs"...meaning they did not have an Rx for them. Lock them up and get the off the streets.
sandy bottom February 22, 2014 at 09:08 AM
get the docters who hand out these drugs for any type of pain
John Cobb February 22, 2014 at 09:59 AM
sandy bottom, when a patient presents with pain, it's the Dr's responsibility to treat them. These druggies know and use all the tricks, multiple Dr's, hospital ER's, etc. to get their pills. If you've ever been on these type of meds, you know that beyond relieving pain, they do provide a euphoric feeling. I'm sure the drugs come with liberal warnings about misuse and dependence so might not the individual have some responsibility to use the drugs properly?
Clementine Snide February 22, 2014 at 05:28 PM
One of the major reasons I don't post around the Patch is because of the horrendous proclivity towards actual name calling and threatening postures. It's really embarrassing to watch "adults" sink to the "nanny-nanny-poo-poo" level. Robert Yates presents very logical and compelling information. I don't necessarily agree with some of what he says, but we talk like adults and listen to each other. In this case, I see clearly what he's saying. I think. hahaa! @Robert, I've said for years there's a direct Afghani connection. I think it's elementary. And we all SHOULD care where it's coming from. If the "war on drugs" is to stem the tide, then you have to look for the original source. That only stands to reason. I'm shifting more and more to an 80's stance that the "war" needs to be on ADDICTION. If the NEED dries up, the source becomes irrelevant.
