Drug Suspects in Gloucester and Camden Counties Arrested; including Gcity Resident

    ​WOODBURY, NJ (March 16, 2023)(CNBNews.org)--On Wednesday, March 8, 2023, the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office (GCPO), along with robust support from multiple law enforcement agencies operating in the Southern New Jersey Region and Philadelphia, executed over 30 Court-authorized search and arrest warrants. These actions were the result of a long-term, complex investigation spanning multiple jurisdictions in both Gloucester and Camden Counties, as well as Philadelphia. This investigation has been conducted in close coordination with the collaborative Federal/State/County/City/Local Liberty-Mid Atlantic High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Region, of which GCPO and Gloucester County are members. HIDTA partners work diligently as a team to reduce the ravages of illicit drugs, addiction, and overdoses, as well as stemming the illicit sale, transfer, and movement of firearms which contribute to gun violence on the streets of our communities.

Acting Prosecutor Hoffman wants to reinforce that all individuals purchasing illegal and unregulated drugs are making extremely bad and dangerous choices, given the explosive growth in our region of Fentanyl being mixed with other drugs, whether they be vegetation, pills or liquid form. The willingness by drug dealers to put others at grave risk for the sake of profit is obvious, given the continual media reports of non-fatal and fatal overdoses linked to Fentanyl intake by unsuspecting buyers. The GCPO will continue its commitment to reducing community trauma brought forth by illegal drug sales by partnering in a multi-phase harm-reduction strategy, including prevention, education, and enforcement.
