Several Arrested and Firearm Recovered During Narcotics Raid

On Thursday, May 4, 2017, the Burlington Township Police Department and the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns & Narcotics Task Force successfully executed a mid-afternoon narcotics raid within an apartment complex located at 1701 Salem Road in Burlington Township, NJ. This raid targeted an apartment in the E Building, and was the product of a cooperative investigation between both agencies.

Just prior to the raid being executed, members of the Burlington Township Police Department Patrol Bureau attempted to stop three male subjects that were observed exiting the target apartment. One juvenile male subject was immediately detained and found to be in possession of two small baggies of marijuana. The other two subjects fled on foot. During the ensuing foot chase, one subject discarded a defaced .22 caliber revolver and the other subject discarded a large sandwich bag of marijuana that was packaged for sale. Both subjects were successfully apprehended, and the discarded firearm and marijuana were recovered.
