HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Two men arrested Tuesday in multiple burglaries in Atlantic County have been tied to a rap video shot at the Bayview Inn & Suites before it was raided by police on Aug. 15, authorities said.
Police said Bashawn Whitted-Scott, 25, of Atlantic City, and Sean Temple, 31, of Mays Landing, robbed homes in Egg Harbor Township and Hamilton Township on Aug. 5 and Aug. 11.
The two allegedly had handguns during the robberies and took cash, electronics and other valuables. Police said they assaulted at least one person during the burglaries.

Police raided the Bayview Inn & Suites on Aug. 15 as part of a separate investigation and also found stolen items from the houses. Whitted-Scott and Temple were part of a rap video that was shot at the Bayview Inn in which they displayed guns, drugs and an alligator that was captured by animal control at the hotel.
Whitted-Scott and Temple face charges including robbery, conspiracy, aggravated assault, conspiracy to make terroristic threats and unlawful possession of a weapon.
The charges do not stem from the video, which appeared on Facebook, police said.
The two men were taken to the Atlantic County jail pending a court hearing.
The alligator was taken to the Cape May County Park & Zoo and will be taken to an animal reserve outside Tampa Bay sometime this year, according to zoo officials.
