Two residents of Locust Street in Aberdeen were busted by local and county police with heroin, crack cocaine, cash and narcotics packaging materials, according to a press release issued by Aberdeen Police Chief John Powers.
Eugene D. Wortham, Jr. , 51, and Doris D. Harris, 54, were arrested on Feb. 21 after the Bayshore Unit of the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office Narcotics and Gang Investigation Bureau and the Aberdeen Township Police executed a search warrant at the Locust Street residence, according to Powers.
Both were charged with possession of heroin and possession of heroin in a school zone. Wortham was also charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute. Harris was also charged with possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine in a school zone and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
Locust Street is less than half a mile from Matawan Aberdeen Middle School and less than a mile from Cliffwood Avenue Elementary School.
Bail for each was set at $20,000 with a 10% cash option and both were released after they posted a bail bond.
An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
