Arrested drug gang kingpin, seize heroin and cash totaling $74K

10:54 | ,

 Drug Enforcement Administration, officials said. Late Tuesday, officers carrying search warrants raided locations in Elizabeth, Rahway and the Fords section of Woodbridge, seizing 75 bricks of heroin, a .40-caliber handgun and $36,000 in cash. The drugs, packed for street distribution, are worth $38,000, the prosecutor’s office said. Arrested in the raids was a drug ring leader, Dennis Jones, known to many as "Fat Cat," said Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow. Dealers in Jones’ distribution network had moved their product throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, authorities said. "These were not small-time dealers, but rather men who ran a sophisticated, wide-reaching, and lucrative drug ring both in and outside the state of New Jersey," Romankow said. In earlier raids, police had arrested Wendell Wilson, a high-ranking member of the East Side Mob Gang PIRU, a set of the Bloods street gang, authorities said. In that operation, officers seized a handgun, about $90,000 in cash, and more than 5½ pounds of heroin, worth some $140,000 on the street, authorities said. The 35-year-old Jones, who lives in Fords, was charged with leading a narcotics-trafficking network, maintaining a drug-manufacturing facility and other narcotic crimes. Also arrested were Dennis Wactor, 25, of Elizabeth; Rasheen Tucker, 35, of Elizabeth; and Clarence Johnson, 36, of Elizabeth. All four men are being held on bails ranging from $500,000 to $3 million. "This is an example of multiple law enforcement agencies combining their resources and working together to remove high level drug dealers from the streets," Romankow said. "I am very proud of the efforts of all involved."
