Two-month probe yields arrests on Lexington Boulevard

A two-month long investigation and the subsequent service of a search warrant by the Barnegat Police Department Narcotics Unit has resulted in three arrests.

At 6:00 a.m. this morning, the Barnegat Police Department Narcotics Unit executed search warrants at both 61 and 99 Lexington Boulevards. 

Antwon Jackson, 31, Imeerah Peten, 20, and Ivory Cross, 23, all of Lexington Boulevard in Barnegat Township were arrested as a result of a quantity of marijuana that was recovered from both residences. They were charged with possession of marijuana and were released pending a court date.

Assisting with the investigation and execution of the warrants were the Stafford Township Narcotics Unit, Ocean County Regional SWAT Team, and K9 units from Barnegat Police Department, Stafford Police Department, and Little Egg Harbor Police Department.

Messers. Hendrickson and John are correct. It is not the neighborhood, it is the few miscreants that have destroyed it - - to include the slum lords. Yes, it takes a ton of manpower to police Barnegat. And that is costly in several ways. However, it would be even more costly to scale back and let the scumbags take over. Kudos to Chief Drexler and Barnegat's Finest for protecting us. And a middle finger to any judge who fails to throw the maximum penalties on convicted criminals. See, the real war is happening on our streets. And we need to fight-to-win!

Maybe soon they will all foreclose, and the banks will kick them all out, then they can knock'em down, But don't forget we have Whispering Hills, and whatever they name the affordable housing on route 9 coming soon! These are "upscale" Lexington blvd units for people to ruin.

It used to be a decent place to live. The real estate market ruined it by selling out to slumlords. These people let scum move in because they know the County will pay them their rent.

An arrest for marijuana possession under 50 grams usually calls for a small fine.Meanwhile what did it cost the BPD in overtime and manpower to make that bust. It probably will be decriminalised soon. Alcohol is wores and takes it toll in domestic violence and drunk driving accidents that cause many injuries and loss of life. Yet alcohol is legal. Your not goinng to stop marijuana use, so you should regulate it and stop wasting resources.
