Narcotics officers and FBI agents confiscated heroin, cash, weed, and firearms after a two-month probe into a Trenton, New Jersey narcotics distribution ring that concluded in arrests on Monday.

Marquise Isler, 29, was at the center of the investigation into a drug trafficking enterprise that authorities said operated in the Spring Street area after the Abdullah heroin trafficking ring was dismantled in the area in late 2016.

On Monday just before 11 am., officers carried out search warrants at a residence.

Inside, they seized 510 bricks of heroin, a .45-caliber handgun, a .22-caliber handgun, a shotgun, $2,436, and 20 grams of weed.

Isler was taken into custody on ten drug and weapons charges, and other individuals in the home were arrested for having active arrest warrants, NJ.com reported.

Investigators said the FBI studied the area and learned that Isler’s enterprise “sprung up,” after the Abdullah ring was expelled from the area.

Isler was arrested pending a court appearance.
