PATERSON, N.J. — Eight people in New Jersey face charges following an eight-month drug investigation that investigators dubbed “Operation Snow.”

Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes says authorities seized 30 kilograms of suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of $1.5 million.

Authorities say drug dealers would meet in retail businesses and restaurant parking lots primarily in the Clifton area.
