TRENTON - Authorities in Trenton say they recovered about $140,000 worth of crack and powder cocaine and arrested nine men and a woman on drug and weapons charges.
Trenton police said Friday that the arrests on Wednesday were part of a larger investigation into a subset of the Bloods street gang stretching back two years.
Police say New Jersey, Pennsylvania and federal officials carried out seven of the warrants in Trenton, one in Hamilton Township, one in Lawrence Township and one in Morrisville, Pennsylvania.

More than 1,200 grams of cocaine, a variety of weapons and several luxury cars were seized during the investigation.
Police began the investigation two years ago after receiving complaints from neighbors living near the base of the operation.
Trenton Police Director Ernest Parrey says that this is only the beginning of the investigation and “lawlessness will not be tolerated by the city of Trenton.”
Facing charges are 51-year-old Hedy Campbell, 52-year-old William Enmond, 54-year-old Mark Uffer Johnson, 53-year-old Bryant Little, 33-year-old Jermaine Mckinney, 31-year-old Khalfini Richardson, 48-year-old Tyron Robbins, 30-year-old Capitol Wellons, 35-year-old Bobby Williams, and 42-year-old Nattia Abrams, who was the only woman charged.
It was not clear if the defendants have attorneys.
