Heroin, handgun siezed by Mercer County Narcotics Task Force

The Mercer County Narcotics Task Force concluded a three-week investigation last Wednesday with two arrests and the seizure of seven bricks of heroin and a handgun, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri said.

On Wednesday, Sept. 27 at about 3:45 p.m., officers with the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Hamilton and Trenton police executed multiple search warrants in the city of Trenton. The target of the investigation, Donte Abdullah, was detained by police near his home on the first block of South Logan Avenue as he was entering his car. A search of the blue Jeep Cherokee allegedly revealed seven bricks of heroin with a street value of about $1,400.

A search of a home on the first block of Hollywood Avenue, allegedly used by Abdullah as part of his drug distribution network, led to the discovery of a Glock 9 mm handgun and a 50-round drum magazine loaded with 37 rounds of ammunition.

Abdullah, 27, was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with the intent to distribute. He was released pending further court proceedings. Jaquay Jackson, age 32, is charged with unlawful possession of a handgun and possession, and other charges related to the ammunition. Jackson turned himself into task force officers on Sept. 28.

  • Unlawful possession of a handgun and selling heroin…released immediately. Sounds legit to me!

  • Given the problems with heroin all over our county and state and the access people have to these drugs bought from dealers, we think it is relevant when there is a heroin dealer bust in our county.
