OCEAN COUNTY, N.J. -

Prosecutors say 10 people are facing charges as a result of a cooperative multi-jurisdictional investigation conducted by the Prosecutor's Special Operations Group, along with other federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies.

Over a two-day period beginning Tuesday March, 25, 2014, prosecutors say they executed search warrants in Ocean and Monmouth counties, as well as, in Redding California, resulting in the arrests of eight men and two females on drug charges.

According to prosecutors, the following individuals were arrested as a result of the investigation: Christopher Brophy, 29, Point Pleasant Borough, NJ, Michael Farr, 35,Redding, CA, Timothy Korber, 30, Toms River, NJ, Gregory Killian, 39, from Spring Lake, NJ, Amy Killian, 32, Spring Lake, NJ, Andres Abad, 24, Brick, NJ, Robert Mitchell, 28, Tinton Falls, NJ, Virginia Kennedy, 57, Point Pleasant Borough, NJ, Michael Schneider, 20, Brick, NJ, William Brad Fraley, 29, West Long Branch, NJ.

Authorities say a search warrant severed to homes and business, lead to the confiscation of approximately 120 pounds of marijuana, multiple firearms and approximately $350,000 in cash.

They also seized several bank accounts that were found to contain proceeds from the illicit drug network, one of which contained approximately $20,000 in drug proceeds, according to a release from the prosecutor.

The investigation regarding the seized bank accounts is continuing and the total amount to be seized from the various banks is undetermined.

The seized marijuana has an approximate street value of $400,000, according to authorities. Also seized during the raids was a large quantity of suspected marijuana candy, which closely resemble Jolly Ranchers, investigators say. They are commonly referred to on the street as "Jollies."

This investigation is continuing in both New Jersey and California. Additional arrests are expected to be made.
