A Superior Court judge ordered three men detained and a woman conditionally released pending resolution of a 97-count indictment charging distribution of narcotics by members of the South Side Mob gang, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said Tuesday.

Umar Salahuddin, 25, and Isaiah Cooper, 28, both of Pleasantville; Tariq Tucker, 26, of Mays Landing; and Kiona Dorsey, 22, of Pleasantville, are charged with possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to distribute, distribution of the substances, money laundering and conspiracy to commit those crimes, according to a press release.

Salahuddin, Cooper and Tucker also are charged with gang criminality, with Salahuddin and Cooper charged with unlawfully possessing multiple firearms and other weapons, including an assault rifle with multiple large magazines, a drum magazine compatible with semi-automatic assault weapons and machine guns with hundreds of rounds of ball and hollow-point ammunition.

Judge Rodney Cunningham ordered Tucker detained pending trial. Dorsey was released on conditions she report to the court’s pre-trial services division on a monthly basis. Cooper is detained pending the resolution of the indictment, and Salahuddin is serving a sentence for other charges.
