New Jersey State Police have arrested 24 suspects for various drug, weapon, and local ordinance offenses, and as a result, stopped a group of gang members allegedly preparing a series of retaliatory shootings.
According to state police, a group of armed gang members were gathering at a home on Tyrell Avenue to plan a series of retaliatory shootings.
Detectives observed several members to be in possession of handguns and as a result, obtained a search warrant.
Detectives last Wednesday seized seven guns, four high capacity magazines and ammo, nine bricks of heroin, eight grams crack cocaine, and one gram of marijuana, among other things.
Ten of the suspects were lodged at the Mercer County Correctional Center, and three juveniles were lodged at the Middlesex County Juvenile Detention Center. The remaining 11 suspects were charged with violating local ordinances and were released pending court.
