Newark Police Shut Down Alleged Heroin Mill, Arrest Suspects for Heroin Distribution, Handgun Possession

Heroin Mill Bust in Newark New JerseyPolice in Newark NJ recently arrested four individuals accused of being connected to a suspected heroin mill.

According to authorities, Newark police officers made the arrests at a heroin mill that was being operated out of an apartment on West Kinney Street in Newark’s Central Ward. The suspects included three men and one woman who were allegedly present when Newark narcotics officers served a search warrant at the residence.

After police served the warrant, they reportedly witnessed someone throw a black bag out of an apartment window. Police officers later located the bag and allegedly discovered a 9-millimeter handgun inside the bag. Police also reportedly found two high-capacity ammunition magazines in the bag.

During a subsequent search of the apartment, Newark police allegedly found 298 decks of heroin, 18 grams of uncut heroin, 200 grams of marijuana, 40 Xanax pills, and more than $1,200 in cash.

Newark NJ police placed the four suspects under arrest. The suspects included a 20-year-old male, a 21-year-old male, a 26-year-old male, and a 20-year-old female.

The apartment is part of the same building in which two men sustained shooting injuries in early 2015.

The suspects have been charged with a number of serious crimes, including heroin manufacturing, possession of heroin, and illegal possession of a handgun.

After being arrested and charged, all four suspects were transported to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey. The male suspects were being held at the correctional facility on separate $500,000 bail amounts. Meanwhile, the female suspect was being held at the jail on a $250,000 bail amount.
