Atlantic City police arrested two men Tuesday night after a stop for bike infractions revealed drugs — and a stun gun.
TAC Officers Darrin Lorady and Eugene Laielli were patrolling around Tennessee and Atlantic avenues at about 8:45 p.m., when they stopped Wayne Davis and Alexsander Campbell for bicycle infractions, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said. During the stop, Lorady saw a stun gun attached to the outside of Davis’ belt, according to the report.
As he was arrested, the officers found he was in possession of 95 bags of heroin and a bag of marijuana, McMenamin said. Campbell, who was wanted on unrelated warrants, was also taken into custody. The officers then found he had 10 bags of heroin.
Davis, 33, of Atlantic City, was charged with possession of a prohibited device, along with several drug violations. His bail is set at $35,000.
Campbell, 20, of Egg Harbor City, was placed on a summons for the warrants and drug possession. He also was cited for not having lights on his bicycle.
About 45 minutes later, TAC Officers James Karins and Brian Hambrecht were conducting a drug investigation on the beach block of Tennessee Avenue, when they stopped James Turner and James Edens.
Edens, 33, of Hamilton Township, Mercer County, attempted to flee but was caught and found to have 6.2 grams of crack cocaine, according to the report. Turner, 41, of Trenton, had more than a half-ounce of crack cocaine.
Both were arrested on multiple drug charges, and are jailed on $50,00 bail each. Both also had unrelated warrants for their arrest.
