Atlantic City police arrested seven residents after complaints about drug sales led to the search of a home this week.
More than eight grams of cocaine, 20 bags of heroin, 48 grams of marijuana, suboxone pills and drug-distribution paraphernalia were recovered when the Special Investigations Section and SWAT Team searched the home in the 100 block of South Ocean Avenue on Tuesday, Lt. Kevin Fair said.
Five men and a woman were charged with various drug offenses and released on summonses.
A 17-year-old boy was also charged, and taken to the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Center on a contempt of court warrant.
Arrested were: Rashad Swain, 20; Dequay Belt, 18; Jaequan Brown, 18, Charles Burnett, 36; Kesha Catts, 40, and Iyon McKinley, 20.
The investigation was led by Detective Brian Hambrecht.
