Authorities on Wednesday announced the arrests of 43-year-old Jason Groome of Barnegat and two other men following a three-month investigation into drug activity in Ocean County.
Search warrants led to the discovery of about 400 oxycodone pills, cocaine, marijuana and several weapons.
Groome is held in jail awaiting a court hearing on various charges, including possession and intent to distribute cocaine and methamphetamine.
Authorities say there's no evidence to suggest any other member of the Groome family is involved.
Groome's son plays for the Class-A Greenville Drive in the Red Sox farm system.
