ATLANTIC CITY — A 37-year-old city man was arrested Thursday after police found heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine on him during a traffic stop.

At 1 p.m., Detective Anthony Abrams was conducting surveillance near the Carver Hall Apartments when he saw a “narcotic transaction” between a man and people in a car, according to a news release from the police department.

As the car drove off, Abrams pulled it over.

Jerome Holley, a passenger in the car, had 60 bags of heroin, 12 grams of cocaine and five grams of meth, police said.

Holley was charged with three counts each of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, or CDS, possession with intent to distribute CDS and possession with intent to distribute CDS within 500 feet of a public zone. He was released on a summons with a future court date.

The driver of the car, Aneesha Watson, had a suspended license and was issued several motor vehicle summons, police said.

Officers were unable to locate the other man, police said.
