An investigation conducted by the Brick Township Police Department's Special Enforcement Team that included surveillance operations in the area of Burnt Tavern Road and Herborn Avenue led to the arrest of two local residents with 43 bags of heroin, police said.

After conducting the surveillance operations March 10, police made a traffic stop at the Shell gas station on Lanes Mill Road at about 6 p.m., according to Sgt. Henry Drew.

An investigation conducted after the traffic stop led to the discovery of 43 glassine bags of heroin, a small plastic bag containing crack cocaine, two hypodermic needles, and a glass smoking pipe that is commonly used to ingest crack cocaine, said Drew.

The operator of the vehicle, Tiffany Bogart, 32, of Simon Place in Brick, was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a hypodermic needle, and possession or distribution of a hypodermic needle. 

In addition, Bogart was issued motor vehicle summonses for driving while suspended, possessing a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle, failure to signal, failure to inspect, failure to wear a seatbelt, and failure to maintain a lane.

A passenger, Jeffery Kampe Sr., 29, of Hulse Avenue in Brick, was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a hypodermic needle, and possession or distribution of a hypodermic needle.

The second passenger in the vehicle, Deandre Boone, 25, of Maple Avenue in Waretown, was placed into custody for an outstanding warrant issued by the Ocean County Superior Court.  According to court records, Boone is facing charges of theft by deception and willful nonsupport.

Bogart and Kampe were processed and released on criminal summonses, and Boone was turned over to the custody of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department.

Between March 10 and March 12, the Brick Police Department's Special Enforcement Team made eight drug arrests, Drew said.

Great work Brick PD, a few photos would help. People might be more inclined to inform Brick PD if they saw these people handing something to others. I know I would.

Get help for heroin and painkiller addictions in a doctor’s office with the prescription medication buprenorphine. Go to TreatmentMatch.org - a nonprofit organization providing a free and confidential way to find certified doctors who can help. Learn more about bupe at naabt.org

Great Work Brick PD. Keep confiscating those cars and sell them at auction, better yet use them as decoys for undercover operations.
