ATLANTIC CITY — An anonymous text to police resulted Thursday in the arrest of three adults and two juveniles and the recovery of a handgun and drugs, police said Friday.
Texts came into the city’s tip411 system early in the day reporting handguns inside a room at the Madison Hotel in the beach block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, police said.
