Red Bank Police have arrested four suspects after a two-prong raid on the West Side Thursday, they announced today.

The busts, which culminated a two-month investigation done in conjunction with the State Police, resulted in the seizure of two caches of crack cocaine, marijuana and a pair of handguns, according to an announcement by Chief Steve McCarthy.

Here’s the full text of the announcement:

The Red Bank Police Department Anti-Crime Unit in conjunction with the New Jersey State Police conducted an approximately two month long narcotics investigation into the sale and distribution of controlled dangerous substances at multiple residences in the Borough of Red Bank.
