Two month investigation led to arrest; 400 pain pills, assorted drugs and a stun gun seized

A two month-long investigation by the Brick Township Police Department's Drug Enforcement Unit culminated in the arrest of three township residents after a search warrant yielded quantities of several illicit drugs, including 400 prescription pain pills, police said.

Police searched the home at 735 Old Burnt Tavern Road Feb. 20, said Sgt. Henry J. Drew.

"The investigation focused on the distribution of prescription painkillers that was occurring in Brick Township," said Drew, in a statement.

The search yielded 400 "assorted pills" which included oxycodone, Soma, morphine, Methadone and suboxone, Drew said. In addition, a quantity of cocaine and marijuana were seized, along with $1,100 in cash, as well as a stun gun.

Sal Sanzo, 32, who lived in the house, was charged with  five counts of drug possession, possession of oxycodone with the intent to distribute, possession of a stun gun, possession of a unlawful weapon, possession of a weapon for a unlawful purpose and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police charged another resident of the house, Carissa Elmiger, 27, with possession of oxycodone with the intent to distribute, possession of oxycodone and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A third suspect, Daniel Mooney, 32, of Brick, turned himself in at Brick Police headquarters Feb. 22, Drew said. Mooney was charged with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All three suspects were released on summonses pending their appearances in court, Drew said.

@ jerzymom many people get little punishment when they rat out others. Even those charged with serious burglary offenses. Most people that burglarize do so in order to pay for their drug habbit. SAD BUT TRUE. Do you know anything about that? You seem to have commented on a previous post involving a burglary. That incident also involved a serious drug addict that decided to steal from the elderly in Holiday City to support his addiction. I read the posts from his wife and daughter. You claim to know him very well, yet you didn't know he was married. Hmmmmmm.

How do they book burglers and let them out?????? Especially when there is obviously enough evidence to convict!

They are all pathetic! They don't know how to live a normal life free of drugs.
