Forked River Man Charged in Drug Distribution Investigation

Narcotics seized at David Sikora's residence had an estimated value of $7,000

A Forked River man was arrested in relation to drug distribution after Lacey Detectives executed a search warrant, Detective Sgt. Chris Cornelius said in a news release.

A search was conducted on Dec. 5 at a South Main Street, Forked River home where David Sikora, 38, was arrested after four outstanding traffic warrants were discovered.

The warrants totaled $2,700 and were issued by the Neptune, Ocean Township, Beachwood and Lacey Municipal Courts.

During Sikora’s arrest, police discovered heroin and crack cocaine in his pockets, Cornelius said.

While searching Sikora’s residence, police found more heroin and crack cocaine as well as prescription medications and marijuana, he said. Police also seized paraphernalia consistent with distribution.

The narcotics seized had an estimated value of $7,000, he said.

Sikora was charged with possession of heroin, intent to distribute heroin, possession of cocaine, intent to distribute cocaine and possession of marijuana. Additional charges are pending as police wait on laboratory results.

Sikora was transported to the Ocean County Correctional Facility where he was unable to post bail for the traffic warrants and additional bail for the drug offenses set at $75,000.

The Ocean County Special Operations Group assisted with the arrest and search.

I agree, these people jump on the "Bandwagon" If they are all so concerned about the children, donate to his girlfriend. Clearly the drug money wont be coming in... LMFAOOO

At the end of the day, everyone has a side gig. It is all about the Benjamins baby!!! Everyone wants to be rich. Nothing is ever enough for some. That is why there is so much corruption. Yet, the small guy is always the one to take a cut back while the fat cats explode... Its a fucked up society we live in. At least people are less nieve about it. Its just a sad shame. But, you have to think that there is money in it to allow people to break the law to put them in jail. Because, who doesnt know that a person living off of minimum wage still has rent to pay and mouths to feed if they have a family. Think about it...

What ever happened to the "good old days" ? I left Lacey because it went down hill ! Daughters friend died if heron over dose at age 22 , 22 is a baby , her mothers eyes at her child's casket will haunt me forever! It could have been my child! She got hooked after her first "shot" due to her b/f! So sad that Lacey looks out for their own, gone and done with good old Forked River , it was nice way back in the days of old!
Liz Machuga December 08, 2012 at 05:10 AM
Personally I moved south for a better life! I'm running out of south Jersey to run from , our future are our children , fight it out amongst yourselfs! (30 odd years) is enough! Look into a child's eyes this time of year , you will find what is worth saving! Innocence is lacking , help bring it back!
peel December 08, 2012 at 05:12 AM
There never Were "good old days" ask anyone from any generation. The drugs have always existed. The "addicts" have always been around. The only difference is this patch that lets everyone know what is going on. It is the bane of this township... everyone wants to know everyone's business, a bunch of gossipers and self reitous
Liz Machuga December 08, 2012 at 05:19 AM
Lived there 18 years , been in this are since I was a kid , 53 now , trust me it definitely. Changed!
peel December 08, 2012 at 05:59 AM
*riotous know it all's. @ mary i am not saying that what this man did was just. What i am saying is that none of you know ANYTHING about this man, other than the very few facts presented in this VERY short article. You know nothing of his situation, let alone his character, and yet you all have this self assured pompous attitude that you hold over anyone unfortunate to be the subject of an article. Quite frankly, you should all be the ones who are ashamed.
Liz Machuga December 08, 2012 at 07:31 AM
Very sad, yet , time for family to heal, they need privet time , how would any of us .. Point a finger , when there are 3 pointing back?
mary December 08, 2012 at 03:52 PM
I will never understand the mentality of people who defend thieves dealers addicts_ poor guy he has no money he had to steal bad economy_ it is a disease not his fault _ people need to take responsiblity for their actions
mary December 08, 2012 at 03:56 PM
this is our community it is our business _ especially when children are involved
Rae Lyn Di Cillo December 08, 2012 at 05:44 PM
Children weren't involved... Just because the mans girlfriend is a mother doesnt mean the kids were ever exposed. Your assumptions are sickening... Go take w walk and start a neighborhood watch... The fresh air might do you some good?
Rae Lyn Di Cillo December 08, 2012 at 05:47 PM
Oh, and Mary, the mentality is: This is not a which hunt. We ALL make mistakes. Clearly this man needs help. Civil minded decent people will allow him another chance at life.
mary December 08, 2012 at 06:09 PM
a mistake is oh I forgot to put the garbage cans down to the curb not crack and heroin give me a break I am not saying lock him up forever _ people need to stop feeling sorry for people who are guilty of crimes _ if kids were in the house where the drugs were found they were obviously in danger
Evernotice December 08, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Yup, He didnt kill anyone yet that we know of...lets give him another chance.
Rae Lyn Di Cillo December 08, 2012 at 06:18 PM
Oh, so now he is ASSUMED violent? Lol A mistake is, I am at a low point in my life and made a bad decision... Who are you to not only be judgemental but to determine what a valid mistake is. You really need to get out of Lacey a bit more. Maybe you will see the reality of whats really going on in todays world. Or is all this mud slinging a better look for you? I grew up with Dave. We used to catch turtles and play at the 3rd lake. He is completely non violent and I feel bad he got himself into drugs. But, you are making him out to be a monster which exposes your ignorance on the situation...
Rae Lyn Di Cillo December 08, 2012 at 06:21 PM
@Evernotice - He was not convicted of anything violent. He had drugs in his possession. That was an ignorant comment on your part. You must be bored... Clearly. You have any other fruitful wisdom to share on this subject that you want to add on with the murder wrap you added to this story?
mary December 08, 2012 at 08:00 PM
actually I am not naive I am very educated and I might work in some capacity with the law I know what is going on __probally more than you _ stop defending criminals and let them take responsibilty for their crimes
Rae Lyn Di Cillo December 08, 2012 at 08:08 PM
Mary, I would not care if you were a judge! Your education does not make you street smart. Im aware of this fact from your ridiculous comments. Get a grip n put down your pitch fork. Your assumptions and accusations are not going to save your community nor will it help this individual get the help he clearly needs. Now, we will have to agree to disagree. Im done with this back and forth with you... Happy holidays
Evernotice December 08, 2012 at 09:34 PM
I didnt mention a violent conviction but I think you know what I meant.
Evernotice December 08, 2012 at 09:36 PM
OH, He used to catch turtles and play by the lake...why didnt someone mention that earlier. He's a great guy. Police must have it all wrong.
mary December 08, 2012 at 11:40 PM
yeah curious how did the mean streets of forked river make you so ghetto smart be well
Deb December 09, 2012 at 01:53 PM
@ Mary, you really should quit, while you think you are ahead . Apparently you have never dealt with addiction and honestly I hope you never have to. Addiction is a disease just like cancer, diabetes, etc. Since you claim to be so educated, perhaps you should know this. I personally am dealing with a family member addicted to this nasty addiction I call the devil. And now have custody of their 2 children. Instead of being so negative , why don't you educate yourself a little further about addiction, instead of being a know it all. You really have no clue.
mary December 09, 2012 at 04:41 PM
one of the 12 steps of recovery is taking responibilty for their actions and in alaon they teach not to enable = teach addicts be addicts. they need to hit bottom whatever that might be rehab jail we as a society can not make excuses for addicts they need to take responsibilty as you know addicts are great manipulators . glad you have the kids I hate to hear of innocent kids being exposed to drugs and the lifestyle it has
Captain Ed December 10, 2012 at 05:24 AM
Let me make this clear. I dont care if this guy was a "nice guy" at one time or used to play with turtles, or got mixed up with the wrong crowd, etc etc. If he is doing hard drugs and is selling them or set up to do so he needs to go to jail. Or ANYONE else that does. Those are CRIMINAL acts and should be treated as such. And anyone who breaks into houses and steals should be put in jail as well like those this past year. Hard drugs are HIGHLY additive.
mary December 10, 2012 at 02:16 PM
well said captain ed these addicts are ruining our community all of the breakins were addicts
Evernotice December 10, 2012 at 02:26 PM
Well said Cap! This guy didnt make a mistake...he made a bad choice and he'll have to pay. All of the reasons for his choice are just excuses. I'm sure he knows right from wrong.
Robert Yates December 17, 2012 at 04:13 PM
SRG: you make a number of reasonable points. With respect to drug use being victimless, it is - strictly speaking - physically hurting no one other than the user. Obviously families are generally adversely affected when members do drugs, but the laws do not work and they violate individual freedom. With respect to availability increasing experimentation, that is an interesting point and I would like to see if in fact this is the case. I assumed that it was not because drugs are already readily available, but perhaps you are right. I think the home break-ins were a result of people of lesser means being addicted to drugs, not a result of the drugs themselves. How many break-ins occur in Rumson which I am sure has its fair share of corporate coke-heads? And how many violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery, etc) occurred in Lacey Township this past year as a direct result of hard drug use? I think statistical assumptions are being made that are not supported by facts. Mike Frankie: Addicts taking out my whole family would indeed be a test of my resolve to maintain this position. Quick FYI: I would not be a hypocrite until two things happened: 1. an addicts succeed at taking out my whole family and 2. I change my position on this issue. Thankfully neither has happened and in any event your assertion is presumptuous. Another quick FYI: sleeping ay Wawa is a far cry from taking out whole families.

Captn Ed go suck on a fat one.
just lookin January 26, 2013 at 10:32 AM
Some times the police say" selling drugs" and that's not the case and the number of how much money the drugs are worth is an estimation of what they assume drugs are being sold for each individual baggie or what not. Trust me I know 100% that it is most of the time falsely reported.
