Two Pennsauken men, brothers with identical names, have been charged by police in a pair of unrelated crimes after authorities raided their home last week.

On January 8, detectives entered a home in the 6300 block of Highland Avenue, pursuing a tip that 34-year-old Luis A. Torres had received child pornography.

When they entered the home, Torres’ 36-year-old brother of the same name allegedly “attempted to run while carrying a backpack,” according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO).

Inside the backpack and the home, “detectives [allegedly]  discovered large amounts of heroin, drug paraphernalia, cash, and a safe,” the CCPO wrote.

On January 12, police returned after having obtained a search warrant for the safe, which they say contained fentanyl, a powerful opioid that can be 30 to 50 times as potent as heroin.

The thirty-six-year-old Torres was charged with:

  • one count of first-degree Maintaining or Operating a Controlled Dangerous Substance (CDS) Production Facility
  • one count of third-degree Possession of CDS with Intent to Distribute
  • one count of third-degree Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • one count of second-degree Possession with the Intent to Distribute Fentanyl Over One Ounce
  • one count of third-degree Possession of Fentanyl


He is being held at the Camden County Jail pending a detention hearing.

His brother, 34-year-old Luis A. Torres, was charged with one count of third-degree Possession of Child Pornography after the January 8 search allegedly revealed child pornography on his cell phone. He was processed at the Pennsauken Police Department, and released pending a court date.

All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
