BRIDGETON, N.J. - September 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office announced charges against 11 people on Wednesday following the investigation into a large scale drug operation.

Authorities say they seized more than $507,000 in cash, 10 kilos of cocaine worth $2 million, two pounds of marijuana worth $7,000, five vehicles and two handguns.
This is believed to be the largest seizure of both narcotics and currency in Cumberland County history, Webb-McRae said.
