Two Atlantic City 9-1-1 operators were arrested after a citizen tip.

Shekeia Wade, 32, of Galloway Township, and Jennifer Dalton, 42, of Atlantic City were arrested Feb. 12 and released on summons after police say they had drugs with them while at work. Wade is accused of selling oxycodone to Dalton while the two were on duty. Dalton was a shift supervisor at the time. Both were suspended without pay.

Two other operators, who were not identified, were suspended. All four employees face administrative charges.

Police said they would not release further information at this time due to the active investigation and the potential for more charges.
