Riverside Investigation Leads to High Quantity Seizure of Narcotics







On December 22, 2014, the Riverside Police charged Gary R. Dubell, 32 yrs, of Riverside Township with Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule II narcotic (Oxycodone) and Possession of a Weapon while in the Commission of a CDS offense.  These offenses all took place within 500 ft of a public park and within 1000 ft of a school. 

The Riverside Police were first alerted to narcotics activity at Dubell’s home in October of 2013 during a separate narcotics investigation.  That investigation involved a narcotics ring operating in the area of the Riverside Township Schools near Dubell’s home.  During that investigation, suspicious activity at the Dubell residence was observed.  Detectives were able to determine through that investigation and the arrests made as a result, that Dubell was not operating within that same narcotics ring.   A subsequent investigation was opened into Dubell and the suspicious activity in and around his Washington Street home.  Throughout the summer of 2014, information was continually being gathered from arrestees and users regarding individuals distributing narcotics in the area, including Gary Dubell.  The investigation led police to believe that Dubell was selling prescription pain killers, Heroin and Crystal Methamphetamine from his residence.    

Detectives with the Riverside Police applied and obtained a search warrant for Dubell’s residence and his automobile through Burlington County Superior Court.  Upon executing the search warrant, the Riverside Police recovered a high quantity of suspected Crystal Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Heroin, Prescription pills and painkillers. The evidence was submitted to the Burlington County Forensic Science Laboratory with charges pending those results.  Lab results confirmed a positive finding of cocaine and a high quantity Methamphetamine.  Lab results are still pending on the Heroin seized from Dubell’s home, however, the preliminary result is that it may be the largest single submission of Heroin in the history of the Burlington County Forensic Science Lab.  

Gary R. Dubell was lodged in Burlington County Jail on $125,000 bail.
