EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Police arrested four residents after executing a search warrant that lead to the seizure of 349 packets of heroin, suboxone and marijuana at an apartment complex.

Duncan Smith, 22, Nichole Vizzone, 21, Christopher Wilkes, 34, and Steven Beck, 52, were arrested and charged with drug possession, intent to distribute and various other drug related charges, police said. 

The arrests were a result of a cooperative investigation between township police, the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office and the Middle Atlantic Great Lakes Organized Crime Law Enforcement Network "to combat the growing local illicit opiate market," police said. 

Of the four charged, three are in Atlantic County Jail, said police Capt. Christopher Ruef.
