Brick Drug Dealer Pleads Guilty To Multiple Offenses

Henry Burns, 56, of Brick, has pled guilty to selling drugs and weapons offenses, in connection with an investigation that transpired between April and May 2023 in Brick Township and Asbury Park.

At the time of his sentencing on March 8, 2024, the State will be seeking a term of 15 years New Jersey State Prison (NJSP) as to the narcotics charge, to run concurrent with a term of ten years NJSP – with a five-year period of parole ineligibility – as to the weapon offense.

A month-long cooperative investigation revealed that Burns was utilizing a residence in Brick Township as well as a store front in Asbury Park to store and distribute Cocaine.  In early April 2023, Detectives from the aforementioned agencies established surveillance on the subject residence and store front.

On May 17, 2023, Detectives observed Burns leave the residence and travel to a business in Red Bank.  Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Strike Force subsequently approached Burns and took him into custody without incident.

Court-authorized search warrants were thereafter executed at the subject residence and store front; as a result, Detectives seized various amounts of Heroin, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, Naproxan, Alprazolam, ten handguns, high-capacity ammunition magazines, multiple rounds of ammunition, and approximately $8,000 in United States Currency – all from the subject residence.

Burns was transported to the Ocean County Jail, where he has been lodged since his apprehension.
