Police seized 6,325 bags of heroin, an ounce of raw heroin and more than $8,000 in cash following an investigation that started when an officer observed a single bag of heroin being sold, authorities said.
At 2:59 p.m. Wednesday, Sgt. Richard Andrews was conducting a drug investigation when he saw a transaction between two men at South Carolina Avenue and Bacharach Boulevard. Andrews arrested Quran Stokelin, 23, of Atlantic City, and found him in possession of a single heroin bag, police said.
Officers began looking for the man who sold Stokelin the heroin, police said. Sgt. Andrew Leonard, Detective Lonell Jones and Officers Nicholas Berardis and Chris Smith found Darryl Tyler, 49, of Atlantic City, at North Carolina and Atlantic avenues, police said. Authorities said Tyler tried to flee but was quickly apprehended and found in possession of 34 heroin bags. Police also arrested Clarice Dallas, 33, of Atlantic City, who was with Tyler and was found in possession of marijuana, according to police reports.
Further investigation by Andrews and Special Investigations Section detectives led to a search of Tyler’s home in the 1500 block of Magellan Avenue, where authorities found more than 6,000 heroin bags and cash believed to be from drug sales, police said.
Tyler was charged with drug possession, possession with intent to distribute and possession with intent to distribute within 500 feet of a public zone. He also was charged with resisting arrest and was lodged in the Atlantic County jail, police said.
