Another Lacey Man Busted On Heroin Charges

A 27-year-old Lacey man was busted this week on heroin charges, police said.

On Monday 4:50 p.m., Officers Michael Verwey and Dimitri Tsarnas responded to 2006 Brookdale Drive in the Pheasant Run section of Forked River in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant

Upon arrival, officers located Dillon J. Dittenhofer who was subsequently arrested on an outstanding $1,000 failure-to-appear warrant out of the Lacey Township Municipal Court.

In addition, he was found to be in possession of 35 bags of Heroin. Dillon Dittenhofer was transported to police headquarters and processed.

He was charged with possession of heroin, possession of clonazepam and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $35,000 with no 10 percent option. Dillon J. Dittenhofer was lodged in the Ocean County Correctional Facility in default of the bail.

On average, it take a herion addit 7 times in rehab to finally get clean. It's a chilling statistic, because most of them don't get that many chances. But no one can help those who do not want help. And if that's the case, let him continue to fall into that black hole. It's sad to see these 15-30 year olds getting sucked into this lifestyle. There's so much else out there to live for, and they rather get high. Pathetic.

@tr - I like your idea. Don't know if Pakistan and Afghanistan are places they should be put to work thou. I think there are plenty of homes in neighborhoods right here in Lacey where these addicts could be taught a trade...carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting etc... It would give them something to do and allow them to learn something that would pay benefits in the long run. After their work day is done I think they should go back to the slammer and start all over the next day with strict supervision.

Lacey township already has facilities set up for this type of program at the the Forked River Game Farm facility on Route 9. Let the Township Committee get something started in a positive venue NOW!

@tr - I thought about what you posted re: Game Farm... I didn't know about that... Wonder how many of the addicts would scream that it's against their rights to be made to "WORK & LEARN Something."
