Trenton police arrest three, seize $19,000 in drugs

Three Trenton residents have been arrested and charged with drug offenses, the Mercer County Prosecutor's office says. The arrests were the culmination of a two-month investigation.

Law enforcement officials said $19,000 worth of drugs were seized from a 51-year-old man, a 42-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman. Each was charged with drug possession, as well as possession with the intent to distribute and related drug crimes.

Two homes were searched earlier this month, officials said, with officers seizing powder cocaine, crack cocaine, ecstasy and drug paraphernalia from one residence.

In the other home, officers reported finding marijuana, plastic bags and a scale.

Officials said they also seized two vehicles "as drug proceeds": a 2008 BMW and a 2007 Infiniti.

The 42-year-old's bail was set at $200,000. Bail for the 51-year-old was set at $150,000. The 25-year-old was released on $150,000 bail.

In an unrelated incident, officials said they arrested three people on suspicions of activities involving prostitution and drug offenses at an Englewood senior citizen housing complex.

A 75-year-old man and a 66-year-old woman were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug nuisance.

The man apparently admitted to authorities that he provided "prostitutes to some of his younger neighbors," a newspaper reports.

A 54-year-old woman was also charged in the case with having a crack pipe, authorities said. She was then suspended from her job as a school crossing guard.

The 152-unit residential complex is managed by the Englewood Housing Authority. It is for low-income and disabled residents 62 years old and up.
