Rockland: Police make biggest drug bust in department history

Rockland Police say they have made the biggest drug bust in the department’s history.

Police Chief John Llewellyn says that at around 11:40 p.m. Thursday, with the assistance of the Metropolitan Swat team, police entered the 518 North Ave home of the suspects: 34-year-old Janis Burns and 22-year-old Errol Jones.

When police entered the room where the suspects were barricaded they found 89.4 grams of heroin, 46.8 grams cocaine, 29 grams of crack cocaine, 1 ½ ounces of marijuana, three replicas of semi automatic weapons and more than $2,000 in cash.

Chief Llewellyn says they believe the pair were major players in the area’s drug trade.

Burns and Jones were arrested and charged with drug trafficking, possession and conspiracy to violate the controlled substances act.
