Reynolds, 30, of Bronx, New York, for unlawful trafficking in schedule W drugs (Oxycodone); and Timothy D. Kane, 27, of Trenton, for failure to appear in court.

MDEA Supervisor Corey Bagley said the trio was arrested at a Deane Street apartment where agents seized a handgun, shotgun, a small quantity of suspected LSD and ecstasy, over 180 oxycodone pills and $ 8,000 in cash.
