This morning, members of the State Police Statewide Narcotics Task Force South Central Office executed a pre-dawn narcotics search and seizure warrant at a residence located at 75 Carriage Path South, Milford. 

The task force, which is comprised of officers from Woodbridge, found the suspect, Thomas Brockert, 31, at the residence, along with two subjects, Raymond Capozziello, 28, and Ashley Brandon, 25.
