  BRICK – The Street Crimes Unit released a list of arrests they had made over the course of a week that included people dealing crack and heroin. The following is a summary of the police reports involving these arrests:

  At around midnight on May 21, detectives spotted a driver acting suspiciously and making motor vehicle violations. They pulled over Anthony Alexander, 26, of Waretown. They said they found heroin and paraphernalia in his possession.

  On May 24, detectives said they saw two known subjects leaving Walmart’s parking lot, knowing one of them had an outstanding warrant. They called for a patrol vehicle to pull them over after watching the vehicle go through a red light.
