According to the Trenton Police Department, the homes were located in the 700 block of 19th Street and the 1700 block of Tindall Avenue.  “We recovered some drug paraphernalia in one house and nothing was found in the other,” said Wright, “There was no arrests made this morning.  Obviously, we have to wait on lab results to get charges, but eventually those will come. ” Suspect names have not been released at this time.

Wright said the activity was the result of a month-long investigation.  “There were some drug purchases made in these homes, “said Wright, “We want to take a clear stance here in Trenton that we will use all of our resources to fight drug dealers and users in our town.”

Wright also took the opportunity to encourage residents to communicate with his department.  “If there is a house in the neighborhood where perhaps drugs are being dealt or other suspicious activity, we ask them to give us a call, “said Wright, “We would be happy to check it out and try to get rid of some of these drug issues.”
