A Toms River man is accused of turning his home into a distribution and storage point for the hallucinogenic drug LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and anabolic steroids, prosecutors said in a statement Thursday.
Daniel Elrose, 29, of Toms River, is facing numerous drug charges following the execution of a “no-knock” search warrant at his township home. The search came after a month-long investigation, authorities said, and included prosecutor’s office Narcotics Strike Force, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Toms River police.
As a result of the investigation and the execution of the search warrant, police seized approximately 227 grams of LSD, a large amount of anabolic steroids, three handguns, a quantity of marijuana, and approximately $2,000 in cash. Elrose was found with two other men at the house who are facing lesser charges.
Elrose is charged with possession of LSD in a quantity greater than 100 milligrams with intent to distribute, possession of anabolic steroids in a quantity greater than 100 milligrams with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm while committing a drug offense, and simple possession of marijuana. Elrose was released on a summons pending a future court date.
Two other men, Jeffrey Elrose, 26, of Toms River, and Junaid Ali, 26, of Toms River, were both charged with simple possession of marijuana.
