A cooperative, multi-agency investigation identified four residences in Toms River as being utilized by Christian Bultron-Rios, 37, Christian Bultron-Carmona, 18, and Anfernee Guzman-Romero, 26, all of Toms River, to store and distribute cocaine.
The investigation determined that this organization was importing large quatities of cocaine into the Ocean County area, concealed in children’s toy boxes. Over the course of the six month-long investigation, all three defendants were observed distributing large amounts of cocaine throughout Ocean County.
Detectives from the aforementioned law enforcement agencies initiated surveillance on the subject residences in Toms River. On March 8, 2023, Detectives observed Bultron-Rios exit one of the residences carrying two children’s toy boxes. Bultron-Rios was subsequently detained and found to be in possession of approximately one pound of cocaine in each toy box. Bultron-Rios was thereafter placed under arrest.
Multiple court-authorized search warrants were then executed on all of the subject residences. As a result, law enforcement seized – in combination from all four residences – additional quantities of cocaine and suboxone, a polymer assault rifle with high capacity magazine, a semi-automatic handgun, hollow point ammunition, and drug paraphernalia indicative of narcotics manufacturing and distribution. Guzman-Romero and Bultron-Carmona were subsequently placed under arrest at one of the subject residences.
