BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- For the second time in five months, a Bergenfield barber posted bail and was released after a drug raid at his home.

Glen S. Thomassini, 43, was arrested last September after detectives reported finding drugs, a .30-caliber handgun and roundball ammunition during a SWAT raid at his Fairview Avenue home. They also seized $8,000 in alleged drug proceeds.

Thomassini posted $100,000 bail eight days later and was released from the Bergen County Jail.

Investigators were back on Tuesday, seizing an ounce of cocaine, an ounce of crack, a half-ounce of heroin, seven ounces of marijuana, various prescription legend drugs, digital scales, baggies and nearly $9,600 in drug money, acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Arrested there with Thomassini were Jamie L. Arango, a 35-year-old waitress, and Keith Santoli, 29, who the prosecutor said is unemployed. Both also live in Bergenfield.

A search of Santoli's East Clinton Avenue home turned up a small amount of heroin, he said.

A judge set bail for Thomassini at $75,000 -- which he posted a short time later.

Charges include various counts of possession with the intent to distribute drugs.

Arango was charged with obstruction and Santoli with heroin possession. Both were released without bail.

Grewal thanked Bergenfield and Dumont police and the Bergen County Sheriff's Office for their roles in the investigation, raids and arrests, coordinated by his Narcotic Task Force.
