Two Egg Harbor City men have been arrested and charged with multiple narcotics offenses after being found with 6,750 bags of packaged heroin and other drugs and weapons, according to a release from the Atlantic County Prosecutor.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs Guns and Narcotics completed a long term investigation into narcotics trafficking by 30 year-old Steven Martinez. The case culminated in the execution of several search warrants last week that also uncovered 3 ounces of unpackaged heroin, 1 ounce of cocaine, one handgun, multiple high capacity magazines, hollow point ammunition and approximately $52 thousand.

Martinez and Joshua Cortes, 25 are facing numerous charges.
