Three residents - including an 80-year-old man - were arrested recently on a variety of drug charges by the Barnegat Police Narcotics Unit, Lt. Keith Germain said.

Police made the arrests at 4:07 p.m. on March 25 near 21 South Main Street, shortly after they spotted Charles Eble 3rd, 39, who they knew had $4,500 in outstanding warrants out of several towns.

The detectives found 46 wax paper folds of heroin on Eble. They then spoke with Valerian Zieniewicz, 80 and Bethany Park, 34, and determined that Zieniewicz had purchased heroin from Eble, which he then distributed to Park, Germain said.

The three - all from Barnegat - were arrested and taken to police headquarters.

Zieniewicz was charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, distribution of heroin (all 3rd degree), and wandering to obtain a controlled dangerous substance, Germain said.

Park was charged with wandering to obtain a controlled dangerous substance.Both Zieniewicz and Park were released, pending a court date.
