A Galloway Township man has been arrested following a five-month investigation into illegal gun-trafficking by the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office and the Galloway Township Police Department. 

Jared M. Horton, 26, of the 100 Block of East Boundary Avenue in Galloway Township was charged with illegal possession of a shotgun and selling a firearm without being licensed to do so.

Horton was lodged in the Atlantic County Justice Facility in lieu of $100,000 bail.  

Galloway police Chief Patrick Moran said this is just one example of ongoing successful cooperative efforts of the two agencies.

"The result in this case is four guns  off of the street and out of the hands of others," he said.
