Four Arrested on Drug Charges in Berkeley Twp.
An investigation into drug activity in Ocean County ended with the arrest of four people facing drug charges.
Authorities initiated an investigation into suspected drug activity at a home located at 53 Pheasant Drive where cocaine was reportedly being stored and distributed.
In addition, police determined that a 2010 gray Toyota Camry was being used in the drug distribution operation. When police located the vehicle - driven by Muhammad Jack Bomar, 28 of Bayville - near Route 9 and Sylvan Lakes Boulevard in Bayville, the driver reportedly excited the vehicle with an aluminum baseball bat and swung it at one of the detectives.
Bomar was ultimately arrested at a nearby Wawa convenience store.
During a search of Bomar's home, investigators found three people who they say were also involved in drug activity.
Cocaine and drug paraphernalia was seized from the home and the car.
Bomar was charged with two counts each of possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute, cocaine distribution, weapons offenses and one count of aggravated assault on a police officer.
He was being held in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River in lieu of $125,000 bail.
Quataisha Hailey, 22, of South Toms River, was charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was being held in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $45,000 bail, Coronato said.
Cherlyn Borchert, 38, of Ocean Gate and Cory Richard, 39, were charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Their bail while at the Ocean County Jail was $35,000.
