Authorities say seven people are now facing charges following a drug bust in Ocean County Tuesday.

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer says numerous law enforcement agencies launched an investigation recently into the distribution of heroin in Ocean County area. Their work ultimately led to homes in South Toms River and a room at the Ocean View Inn and Suites in Toms River. Billhimer says 26-year-old Kevin Morrison, Jr., of South Toms River, 26-year-old Daniel Finklin, also of South Toms River, and 35-year-old Rodney Morrison of Toms River were using those locations to store and distribute heroin.

On Tuesday, cops executed search warrants at those three properties and they seized approximately 3,210 wax folds of heroin, 52 ecstasy pills, a loaded .38 caliber revolver, drug paraphernalia, and approximately $11,700 in cash.

As a result, the following people were arrested:
