An Irvington man is back in the Ocean County Jail after he was arrested for possession and distribution of heroin, little more than a month after he was arrested on the same charges.
Shaun M. Anderson, 35, is lodged in the jail in lieu of $300,000 bail, with no ten percent option. His wife Ramona and a Newark man are facing the same charges, Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato said.
Detectives from the Prosecutor’s Special Operations Group, Northern Enforcement Unit determined on Sept. 9 that Anderson was using a 2001 BMW to distribute heroin in Ocean County, Coronato said.
Police spotted Shaun Anderson's BMW on Dover Road in South Toms River at 7 p.m. on Sept. 9.
SOP detectives and detectives from the South Toms River Police Department located the car at 7 p.m., in the area of 380 Dover Road in South Toms River.
Anderson, his wife Ramona Anderson, 40, Irvington and Cailee Jackson, 23, Newark, were inside the BMW. Detectives search the car and found 350 individual dosage units of heroin, along with $1,500 in cash, Coronato said.
All three were subsequently arrested and transported to the South Toms River Police Department, then to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River. The 2001 BMW was also seized pending forfeiture proceedings, authorities said.
