Two Camden men that police allege were distributing as many as seven different stamps of heroin out of a Whitman Park drug mill were arrested Thursday.
Lewis Miller, 34, and Miguel Nunez, 39, both of Camden, were arrested by Camden County Police during the service of warrants at two residences in the 1100 block of Thurman Street and one in the 900 block of Jackson Street.
Authorities also seized five handguns, two pellet guns, 300 rounds of ammunition, quantities of heroin and crack cocaine, and more than $2,000 in cash.
Miller was charged with four counts of Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, four counts of Possession of Hollow Point Bullets, four counts of Certain Persons Not to Possess Weapons, and three counts of Possession of a Large Capacity Magazine. He was remanded to the Camden County Jail on $478,000 cash-or-bond bail.
Nunez was charged with Possession of a Controlled, Dangerous Substance (CDS), Possession With Intent to Distribute, and Possession With Intent to Distribute Within 1,000 Feet of a School. Nunez was remanded to the Camden County Jail on $101,000 cash-or-bond bail.
“We will maintain a relentless effort to target violent drug gangs and the poison they distribute on the streets,” said Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson in a statement. “Overdoses in the region continue to rise, and the correlating gang violence must be stopped.”
The arrest comes on the heels of a major drug bust Thursday, in which 15 members of an alleged ring of top heroin and cocaine suppliers in Camden and North Philadelphia were charged.
All persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent unless and until found guilty in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
