CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE _ Additional drug and weapons charges have been filed against two Wildwood residents after a search warrant uncovered 210 bags of heroin and two firearms.

Brittany Dermott, 21, and Heriberto Aletriz-Soto, 25, were arrested on Dec. 27 after police seized 79 bags of heroin from them. Both were charged with possession of heroin and possession with intent to distribute. Both were lodged in the Cape May County jail with bail set at $35,000.

A joint announcement Wednesday from Cape May County Prosecutor Robert Taylor, Wildwood Police Chief Steven Long, and Middle Township Police Chief Chris Leusner said more charges were added following a search of a motor vehicle and a storage unit on Indian Trail Road. The search found 210 bags of heroin with an estimated street value of $4,200, two firearms with ammunition, and $3,000 in U.S. currency.

The discovery led to more charges, including unlawful possession of a handgun, and bail was increased to $50,000 for both Dermott and Aletriz-Soto.

Taylor said the county would continue to vigorously go after those selling narcotics.
