Jackson resident facing drug charges

JACKSON – A resident of Jackson is facing drug charges following his arrest on Aug. 1.

In a press release, the Jackson Police Department said an investigation was launched in November into the suspected manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine.

The investigation concluded with the arrest of a 40-year-old male resident of Anita Drive who was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and first degree maintaining a facility for the manufacture of methamphetamine, according to police.

Police said Jackson patrol officers assisted detectives with a motor vehicle stop on West Commodore Boulevard during which the suspect was taken into custody. During a search of the suspect, a substance believed to be methamphetamine was found and seized.

The investigation continued with the seizure of the suspect’s 1998 Suzuki motorcycle and a 2002 Ford F150, in which officers observed what appeared to be material used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

With the assistance of the New Jersey State Police Hazmat Unit, a search of the vehicle was conducted and additional methamphetamine was recovered, along with materials and chemicals which were allegedly being used to manufacture methamphetamine inside the vehicle, according to the press release.

During the search of the vehicle, a mortar round was recovered. The mortar round was later determined to be inert, according to police.

The suspect was initially placed in the Ocean County Jail, Toms River. The New Jersey State Police Hazmat and bomb units and detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Strike Force Unit assisted with the investigation.
