A Pleasantville man and woman were arrested Thursday for possession and distribution of more than 90 grams of cocaine.

Wallace Knowles, 32, and Ilove McKenzie, 38, were found with the cocaine, a loaded 9 mm handgun and more than $45,000, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office. 

Everything was seized along with a 2008 Lincoln Navigator.

Knowles and McKenzie were charged with distribution and possession of more than half an ounce of cocaine, weapons possession, and distribution of drugs within 500 feet of a government building.

Both were taken to Atlantic County Jail. Bail for Knowles was set at $150,000 cash, and bail for McKenzie was set at $50,000.

The arrests were a result of an investigation by Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns, and Narcotics (GGN) Unit investigation. Atlantic County SWAT and Pville PD assisted with the execution of the search warrant.
