Troopers Arrest Trenton Family Members
Accused of Running Heroin Mill

Trenton, N.J. - On Thursday, January 10th, New Jersey State Police Crime Suppression North Unit detectives arrested two Trenton men accused of operating a heroin production facility at a West Ward residence. Tyreek Harrington, 26, and Gregory Harrington, 48, of Trenton have been sought for three weeks since detectives executed search warrants at two Reservoir Street homes.

On December 14th, 2012, detectives, along with the Trenton Police Department, and a State Police K-9 Unit, executed search warrants at 353 and 358 Reservoir Street. Evidence revealed a substantial heroin mill operation at the 358 address, which is an abandoned house across the street from their 353 residence. Investigators seized packaging material, grinders, respirators, stamping equipment, heroin, crack cocaine and powder cocaine. During the search, detectives were unable to locate the uncle and nephew team believed to be key figures in the operation. Arrest warrants were issued, and last night, detectives located the men in the city of Trenton. Tyreek Harrington was found in a parked car on the corner of Wilson and Reservoir Streets. Gregory Harrington was located in front of 353 Reservoir Street.

They were charged with:

  • Possession of CDS Heroin
  • Possession w/Intent to Distribute
  • Possession w/Intent in School Zone
  • Possession w/Intent in Public Housing Zone
  • Conspiracy to Distribute CDS

Bail was set at $50,000, full cash. The Harringtons were lodged in the Mercer County Jail in default of bail.
