Assault Complaint Leads to Narcotics Arrest in Barnegat
A response to an assault resulted in a Barnegat Township man’s arrest on several drug complaints last month.
Lt. Keith Germain said that on May 24, Officer Sarah Girgenti arrested Michael Connolly, 27, for simple assault after responding to a dispute at his Mizzen Drive address.
Germain said that after the arrest, members of the department’s investigation unit conducted a consent search of the home, where they discovered anabolic steroids, suboxone and hypodermic syringes.
Aside from the assault complaint, Connolly was charged with third degree possession of suboxone, possession of steroids and possession of hypodermic syringes. He was lodged in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. —E.E.
