The largest pill bust in New Jersey state history happened this week and it included a raid on a Jersey shore wireless store.

About 420,000 to 620,000 alprazolam (Xanax) tablets were reportedly seized by authorities. Investigators were able to execute search warrants after a string of undercover pill purchases, according to Gloucester Twp. Patch.

Authorities say 51-year-old Ronald McCarty of Jackson ran his pill business out of The Wireless Spot on Main Street in Asbury Park. He and two other business owners were reportedly selling drugs to buyers in more than 40 states, including New Jersey.
