MAYS LANDING — An Atlantic County grand jury indicted a Hammonton man Tuesday on 27 counts of drug possession and distribution charges, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.

Juan Reyes, 32, was charged after a March 29 search of his Farview Avenue home, authorities said. The search followed an investigation into drug sales throughout Atlantic County.

The search warrant was executed by members of the Prosecutor's Office Gangs, Gun and Narcotics task force, the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and Hammonton police.

Tyner said authorities found about 4 ounces of crack cocaine, about 1 ounce of crystal methamphetamine and 2 grams of uncut and unpackaged heroin. 

The date Reyes' next court appearance was not given.
