Last month, the Secaucus Police Department’s Anti-Crime Unit received information that heroin was being sold from a residence on the 200th block of Lincoln Avenue.
The investigation culminated on Saturday, which led to Jose Torres-Amaro, 52, and Samantha Enders, 26, both of Secaucus, being charged with possession of heroin with the intent to distribute.
Additionally, Kim Enders, 53, of Secaucus was arrested for possessing a small quantity of heroin along with drug paraphernalia. Finally, David Enders, 52, of Secaucus was arrested after he was found in possession of five five fraudulent identifications.
“The Secaucus Police Department is committed to investigating all complaints of Vice Crimes to better the quality of life for the residents of Secaucus,” Miller said in a statement.
“I want to thank the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office K-9 for assisting in the execution of this search.”
Torres-Amaro and Samantha Enders were also both charged with possession with the intent to distribute heroin within 500 feet of public property, conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute heroin, possession of heroin, and possession with the intent to distribute drug paraphernalia.
Furthermore, Torres-Amaro faces a money laundering charge and they were both lodged in the Hudson County Correctional Facility.
