Jackson Man Faces Multiple Drug Charges, Bail Set at $200K

Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Special Operations Group and Jackson police made arrest last week

A Jackson man is being held on a total of $200,000 bail for multiple charges that he allegedly distributed and possessed drugs, the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday. 

Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Special Operations Group and Jackson police executed a search warrant at 32-year-old James Streeter's Willow Point Drive home and two of his cars — a 2002 Cadillac Deville and a 2000 Acura RL — on Sept. 14, according to a news release from the prosecutor's office. 

Authorities said that about 60 grams of cocaine, 800 bags of heroin, $8,500 in cash and a digital scale were recovered during the search.

Streeter was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of over a half ounce of cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of heroin over one-half ounce with intent to distribute. Streeter's bail for those charges was set by Superior Court Judge Francis R. Hodgson at $125,000, no 10 percent option, according to the release.

An additional distribution of heroin charge netted Streeter another $75,000, no 10 percent option in bail, according to the release. 

As of Monday afternoon, Streeter has not posted bail, according to the Ocean County Department of Corrections.

LISREN PEOPLE HAVE TO DO WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO MAKE MONEY AND SUPPORT A FAMILY THESE DAYS....THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LEGALIZE REGULATE AND TAX DRUGS. IF SOMEONE WANTS TO KILL THEMSELVES ON DRUGS ..SO BE IT. BUT THINK OF ALL THE TAX REVUNE AND HOW FAST THIS COUNTRY CAN GET OUT OF DEBT. THE CARTELS WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS AND OUR OWN GROWERS WILL MAKE MONEY. ITS A WIN WIN SITUATION

I know, right... Can you believe that some people are actually aware of the fact that America's drug policies cause more problems than the drugs themselves?

Deplorable. I hope you're not an actual doctor.

And people have to GET A JOB in order to make money to support their family. Selling drugs isn't a reasonable alternative. There are dozens of state programs that aid low income families so there is no excuse whatsoever to resort to selling drugs. And it's not an option of whether or not someone "wants to kill themselves on drugs". People on drugs injure or even kill other helpless people all the time. Read the news. You should be ashamed of yourself for making a comment like that or at least be sharing a cell with them.
