Gloucester Twp. Police Bust Alleged Heroin, Pill Dealers

Police announce charges in Blackwood drug investigations.

Gloucester Township Police Department on Wednesday announced two township men have been charged with selling prescription pills and heroin to undercover police officers over the course of several months.

Police allege John B. Kobsar, 45, of Marshall Avenue, Blackwood, sold Adderall pills to undercover officers. The alleged drug deals occurred in a parking lot located on the Black Horse Pike, nearby Kingdom Charter School, which is located on Church Street, Harwin Park and Gloucester Township-Blackwood Rotary Public Library.

Police allege Alex M. Gorczynski, 27, of 12th Avenue, Glendora, sold heroin to undercover officers.

Kobsar and Gorczynski were targets of an undercover investigation conducted by the Police Department's Special Investigations Unit between August and October, according to Det. Sgt. James Schriver. The probe focused on narcotics distribution in Blackwood.

Police filed the drug charges against Kobsar and Gorczynski on Dec. 12.

Kobsar, who was already lodged in Gloucester County Jail in connection with his arrest on burglary charges, has been charged by Gloucester Township Police with third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), possession of CDS with intent to distribute and distribution of CDS within 1,000 feet of a school zone and second-degree distribution of CDS within 500 feet of a park or public facility. Bail on those charges was set at $50,000, Schriver said.

Gorczynski was charged with third-degree possession of CDS and possession of CDS with intent to distribute. He was already being held in Burlington County Jail on shoplifting charges when Gloucester Township Police filed the drug charges against him, Schriver said. Bail on the local drug charges was set at $7,500.
