TRENTON - Authorities say three people have been arrested and over $65,000 worth of narcotics has been seized as the result of a two month investigation into a suspected drug ring in Mercer County.
Officials Tuesday searched three Trenton-area residences and found a combined 2,193 oxycodone pills, 20 grams of cocaine and $4,296 in suspect drug proceeds.
27-year-old Robert Paula, who utilizes the residences, was taken into custody. Kelvin Tavarez-Martinez, 24, and Jennifer Rodriguez, 25, were also arrested as a result of the investigation.
Authorities later transferred custody of Paula to U.S. Immigration and Customs.
All three have been charged with second-degree narcotics offenses.
