LOWER TOWNSHIP  - A Lower Township man was arrested Tuesday by police following up on a report of an intoxicated person in North Cape May, police said.

Shawn E. Miller, 36, was charged with possession of CDS and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A patrolman was dispatched to the Wawa at 3719 Bayshore Road in North Cape May shortly after noon Tuesday after police received the report. While he was responding, dispatch radioed additional information that the man was getting into a black Ford pickup truck and leaving from the gas pumps.

When the patrolman arrived on scene, he found a vehicle matching that description in the exit lane and conducted a motor vehicle stop. Further investigation revealed an active arrest warrant for the driver, identified as Miller. He was found to be in possession of Suboxone without a legal prescription as well as other drug paraphernalia.  

Miller was lodged in the Cape May County Correctional center on $20,000 cash bail.
