    A 47-year-old New Jersey man was arrested at a hotel Monday after authorities allegedly found more than 600 packets of heroin, many of them branded "Ebola," for sale, along with crack cocaine.

    Barnabas Davis was taken into custody at the Ramada Inn on Route 9 in Toms River after officials executed a search warrant for the rear suites. Investigators allegedly found 633 wax folds containing heroin and about 40 grams of crack cocaine in his possession.

    Officials said the heroin had a variety of "trademark" stamps, including the brand name "Ebola."

    Davis was charged with possession of heroin and crack cocaine and possession of both drugs with intent to distribute.
