County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford says that Mark Bond and Kalliope Stampolis were arrested Friday at Bond’s house on Edgewood Court in Lakewood.

Armed with a warrant, county and Lakewood investigators say they found about an ounce of cocaine and about 195 bags of heroin, along with the prescription drug suboxone and some marijuana. They seized a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck which they believe was used to deliver the drugs.

Bond faces five possession- and distribution-related counts for cocaine, heroin and marijuana. He was placed in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River with bail set at $200,000, with no option to pay 10% of the total for release.

Stampolis is charged with six similar charges, including one for possession of drug paraphermalia. Her bail is set at $50,000 also with no 10% option.

The investigation included members of the Prosecutor’s Special Operations Group; Lakewood Township PD SWAT Team and Street Crimes Unit; and the Ocean County Sheriff’s K-9 unit.
