An extensive investigation by Essex County authorities has resulted in a series of arrests for drug trafficking charges.
A street gang known as the 793 Bloods was behind the operation, according to prosecutors.
NJ.com reports that 48 people have been charged overall, with 11 of them still at large. Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said the 793 Bloods operated through Essex County, and mainly dealt in heroin. “The operation was a daily one, a mid-level operation that took place in a fairly business-like fashion,” she said.
