6 Busted in Clairmore Avenue Drug Raid

Narcotics and drug paraphernalia were found after detectives and police executed an arrest warrant

Five Lacey residents and a Floridian were busted after police executed an arrest warrant on Thursday, finding narcotics and drug paraphernalia, police said.

Detectives from the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department and Lacey Police Department executed an arrest warrant at a residence on the 100 block of Clairmore Avenue, ultimately arresting:

  • Abigal Thomson, 26, of Clairmore Avenue, Lanoka Harbor
  • Karalyn Smith, 21, of Pensacola Road, Forked River
  • William Shelby, 26, of Clubhouse Drive, Forked River
  • Matthew Lonsdale, 20, of Brandywine, Forked River
  • Kristalinn Steadman, 19, of Laurel Boulevard, Lanoka Harbor
  • Rebecca Eaton, 24, of Titusville, Fla.

The arrest warrant was served at Thomson's home and while inside the residence, narcotics and drug paraphernalia were found leading to the suspects' arrest.

Thomson and Smith were arrested on outstanding warrants. Shelby, Lonsdale, Steadman and Eaton were arrested for narcotics. All six were charged with possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Thomson and Smith were released after posting bail at the Ocean County Jail.

It says us there that Matthew Lonsdale is 20 .. No he is 31 years old .. and i am sure Kristalynns parents want the best for her and love their daughter very very much .. but why were they allowing their 19 year old daughter to go out w a man who is 30 years old ..esp. one like lonsdale its not like he was a successful good influence.. Matt was living at kristalynns house how could they let a 30 year old live with them and sleep in their babys bed at night ? it disgusts me . i know all of this b/c my daughter unfortunatly is matts x gf and he did the same to her.. and let me guess kristalynn had a car and she would drive matthew wherever he needed to get to .. b/c that was how it was w my daughter he usus everyone for anything and everything he can get out of them .. idk y these beautiful girls fall for him but its sad. I hope the next girl he meets her parents have read these articals about him and see who he truely is and they pull the plug on it right away .. b/c it seems as if matt goes out w girls who are 18 - 20 yrs old.. b/c he wants to be able to have them drive him around.,. give him a place to sleep .. and buy him his drugs

ellen shelby abby is a dealer and so is matt lonsdale .. im not saying they all are .. but i know for sure the 2 of them are .. when my daughter was not doin well her and matt moved into that girl abbys house when myself and matts parents kicked them out .. Abby has been a dealer since than .. and i know Matts dealin now b/c i saw a text just yesterday in my daughters phone sayin something about what he had and for her to let him know if she needed anything.. ( yes i shouldnt be going through her phone but when it comes w dealin with your kids who have drug problems ... there are no rules ) i am assuming you are related to one of them who was arrested this day .. and i am just lettin you know so that you can keep him/her away from matt .. he is no good .. does not want to change . and in the 6 years i have unfortunatly had him in my life seen so many time him gettin in trouble and gettin out of it .. and his family and my daughter offering help and him not wanting it .. so if your son or daughter is hanging out with him than you know for sure they r not doing the right thing.. god bless

The national health administration defines and recognizes ADDICTION AS A BRAIN DESEISE. IF YOU ARE BORN WITH PREDISPOSITION, GETTING MAD AT AN ADDICT FOR DOING DRUGS IS LIKE GETTING MAD AT A PERSON FOR GETTING CANCER. Addicts are not happy, and do not enjoy their lives. It's Is those who profit by taking advantage of a brain condition and deal drugs that need to be sought out and arrested. They put the illegal drugs in the addicts hands. If you we're dieing of thirst, and someone sold you a bottle of water, ud drink It. It is an instinctual response. The same goes for addicts- those of any kind; drug, gambling, sex, ect.

In Lacey Patch’s local crime section you can find my name in connection with the possession of a controlled dangerous substance. In the section supporting the comments of local citizens, you can also see peoples opinions regarding my actions. I feel it is now time to say my piece.
Matt Lonsdale February 09, 2013 at 08:29 PM
I will not defend my actions concerning drug use. I have hurt my family and friends in ways that I may never be able to completely put behind me. Even though I knew ahead of time I would be hurting myself as well as the people I care about, I went ahead and used heavy narcotics anyway. Two of the women I was with during this period have also been involved with drugs. It is not my place to reveal information concerning their personal life so I will speak no more on them, but it should be known I have NEVER used illegal drugs with anyone, man or woman, who did not themselves want to use narcotics. Every person consciously decided on their own to pick up. I never made that decision for anyone. Especially my girlfriends.
Matt Lonsdale February 09, 2013 at 08:29 PM
I am an honorably discharged Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran and I am ashamed for how I once behaved. However I have taken it upon myself to take the necessary steps to set my life straight. I have been shown there is a better way to live without the use of drugs and I will become successful no matter what. I will earn a career and I will become a functioning member of society just like I once was before. If your one of those who wish to project responsibility on me for someone else's behavior concerning drugs I feel it is my duty to let you know that the definitions for responsibility and behavior can be found in any dictionary in any English speaking country.

Your accusations, if gone unchallenged, become beliefs. But what you believe is not always true. Do not point the finger if you do not have a hand to lend. And most importantly if you have something to say about me, say it to my face. I will have you know that not everyone has it in them to be a soldier, but I do.

IT WOULDNT HURT TO HAVE A K-9 ON THE FORCE

@ jackie, you shut the hell up , im entitled to my opinion , i really shouldnt acknoledge people like you because i know something probly happened to you in the past for you to act like that, and to whoever tried to correct my grammer, this isnt the thread for you , were talking about a serioius issue and youre trying to spellcheck me, like really? and whoever says i probly do drugs , call lcpd and ask them if i do , they know me well enough to know i dont, to everybody else that let me express my opinion , thank you, addiction is a disease and some people need to understand that, alot of the time theese people are stealing from homes or walmart etc, its to get enough drugs not to get sick , getting sick is a horrible feeling i am told , there needs to be more treatment out there for people instead of bigger jails, and to anyone who is bitter against addics who steal , join the club because i am too ,it has happened to me big time in the past and it makes me extremely angry but, i also know where there coming from so if i caught someone and they got arrested, i would ask the judge to send them to treatment instead of jail so they can learn how to live in society without drugs, the problem in lacey township is not getting better, lcpd is understaffed, and there is no k-9's to assist in motor vehicle stops, we need to focus on treatment and optaining at least 2 k-9's for the force!!! lets all work together to combat this issue!!

And @ steve, might cost the taxpayers $$ but there cheaper and way more efficiant when it comes to finding narcotics then hiring more police, and you said only sheriffs have them? Not really, trpd has had about half a dozen for over 10 yrs plus more taxpayer money but alot less drugs, i will be raising $$ for this and thats something im good at so stay tuned!!!

LEE "DJ ICE" LONG February 10, 2013 at 02:03 PM
@ PADDLER, JAIL ISNT THE ANSWER, YOU DONT SIT THERE AND THINK ABOUT YOUR CRIME, YOU SIT THERE AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU COULDVE DONE NOT TO GET CAUGHT, TOO MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS CAN BE DANGEROUS FOR ADDICTS, REHAB THERE IS NO TIME CAUSE YOURE ALWAYS IN GROUP GETTING THE MESSAGE OF SOBRIETY IN YOUR BRAIN, IT IS HEALTHY FOR THERE MINDS
LEE "DJ ICE" LONG February 10, 2013 at 02:06 PM
ALL ADDICTS PROMOTE THE DRUG PROBLEM
