A Hammonton Man and his daughter were among eight people arrested by State Police as part of an investigation targeting narcotics and weapons trafficking in Camden.

State Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal says Harold Thomas, 49, and his daughter, Natyra Thomas, 22, of Camden, allegedly supplied illegal drugs to drug dealers in Camden.

Grewal says, "Both father and daughter are charged with second-degree conspiracy to distribute narcotics. Natyra Thomas is also charged with first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree distribution of fentanyl, second-degree distribution of narcotics within 500 feet of a public park, and the following third-degree charges: possession of fentanyl, possession of cocaine, and distribution of narcotics in a school zone."

In addition to the father and daughter, five alleged members of a drug set that sold large quantities of heroin in South Camden were nabbed, and an alleged gun trafficker who sold seven firearms, including military style weapons was arrested.
