Six people are facing drug-related charges in Atlantic City after residents of one neighborhood complained to police about quality of life issues.

That neighborhood, the 1500 block of Atlantic Avenue, was the scene of a surveillance operation by the ACPD this past Thursday.

As a result, police say detectives arrested six people for various CDS-related charges. Officials recovered over $4,200 cash, prescription pills, nine bricks or 450 individual wax folds of heroin, over one ounce of crack cocaine, and 11 ounces of marijuana.

Interim Officer in Charge Deputy Chief James Sarkos said in a statement, "The Atlantic City Police Department continues to prioritize Atlantic Avenue. Operations like this will continue and increase as we address these issues."
