ELIZABETH, NJ - A 37-year-old Plainfield resident is one of eight people who have been arrested after $500,000 in narcotics were seized in a drug trafficking investigation in the area.

Martin Davis was arrested Friday at his home on the 900 block of Prospect Avenue in Plainfield. Along with quantities of raw and packaged heroin, members of the Guns, Gangs, Drugs, and Violent Crimes Task Force also seized from Davis’ home more than $20,000 in cash, ventilation masks, mixing bowls, rubber bands, rolls of tape, and numerous stamps with various markings used in the processing and packaging of heroin, according to a release from the Union County Prosecutor’s Office.

Davis was charged with first-degree racketeering, second-degree conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, and multiple related second- and third-degree drug offenses. Bail has been set at $350,000, cash only.

“We would like to express our profound gratitude to each of the assisting law enforcement agencies for providing invaluable logistical support in this investigation,” acting Prosecutor Grace H. Park said. “This was a true group effort that quickly produced outstanding results.”
