Dozens of people were arrested in the Greenville section of Jersey City Thursday morning in a sting investigators called "Operation Wetlands."
Included in the arrests were members of the Sex, Money, Murder set of the Bloods street gang.
Authorities say the people arrested controlled drug operations in the Greenville section of Jersey City, leaving residents fearing for their lives. "The specific drug trafficking network controlled a significant distribution of PCP, heroin, cocaine and marijuana," said New Jersey State Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes. He also said the network was led by an individual identified as Dempsey Collins of Bayview Avenue in Jersey City.
The New Jersey State Police Street Gang North Unit, Jersey City police, Hudson County Prosecutor's Office and Federal DEA agents made the arrests Thursday morning.
