Forked River Man Charged in Drug Distribution Investigation

Narcotics seized at David Sikora's residence had an estimated value of $7,000

A Forked River man was arrested in relation to drug distribution after Lacey Detectives executed a search warrant, Detective Sgt. Chris Cornelius said in a news release.

A search was conducted on Dec. 5 at a South Main Street, Forked River home where David Sikora, 38, was arrested after four outstanding traffic warrants were discovered.

The warrants totaled $2,700 and were issued by the Neptune, Ocean Township, Beachwood and Lacey Municipal Courts.

During Sikora’s arrest, police discovered heroin and crack cocaine in his pockets, Cornelius said.

While searching Sikora’s residence, police found more heroin and crack cocaine as well as prescription medications and marijuana, he said. Police also seized paraphernalia consistent with distribution.

The narcotics seized had an estimated value of $7,000, he said.

Sikora was charged with possession of heroin, intent to distribute heroin, possession of cocaine, intent to distribute cocaine and possession of marijuana. Additional charges are pending as police wait on laboratory results.

Sikora was transported to the Ocean County Correctional Facility where he was unable to post bail for the traffic warrants and additional bail for the drug offenses set at $75,000.

The Ocean County Special Operations Group assisted with the arrest and search.

Well said Cap! This guy didnt make a mistake...he made a bad choice and he'll have to pay. All of the reasons for his choice are just excuses. I'm sure he knows right from wrong.

SRG: you make a number of reasonable points. With respect to drug use being victimless, it is - strictly speaking - physically hurting no one other than the user. Obviously families are generally adversely affected when members do drugs, but the laws do not work and they violate individual freedom. With respect to availability increasing experimentation, that is an interesting point and I would like to see if in fact this is the case. I assumed that it was not because drugs are already readily available, but perhaps you are right. I think the home break-ins were a result of people of lesser means being addicted to drugs, not a result of the drugs themselves. How many break-ins occur in Rumson which I am sure has its fair share of corporate coke-heads? And how many violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery, etc) occurred in Lacey Township this past year as a direct result of hard drug use? I think statistical assumptions are being made that are not supported by facts. Mike Frankie: Addicts taking out my whole family would indeed be a test of my resolve to maintain this position. Quick FYI: I would not be a hypocrite until two things happened: 1. an addicts succeed at taking out my whole family and 2. I change my position on this issue. Thankfully neither has happened and in any event your assertion is presumptuous. Another quick FYI: sleeping ay Wawa is a far cry from taking out whole families.

Some times the police say" selling drugs" and that's not the case and the number of how much money the drugs are worth is an estimation of what they assume drugs are being sold for each individual baggie or what not. Trust me I know 100% that it is most of the time falsely reported.
