HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Police seized 11 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $40,000, police said.

Authorities also are looking for two men, including one from Mays Landing, following the motor vehicle stop Thursday that led to the seizure, police said.

Officer Nicole Odell stopped a vehicle at 7:59 p.m. Thursday at Wrangleboro Road and the Atlantic City Expressway entrance, police said.

The driver was identified as Kevin Moulden, 26, of Mays Landing, and his passenger was Timothy Spencer III, 29, of Baltimore, police said.

Odell detected a strong odor of marijuana, and a subsequent investigation revealed Moulden and Spencer were in possession of more than $11,000 in cash and drug-packing material, police said.

The $11,000 was seized as part of the investigation, and Moulden was released from the scene, police said. Spencer was charged with possession of marijuana and released on a summons, police said.

The Charger was seized and towed to the Hamilton Township Police Department. Municipal Court Judge Michelle Verno on Friday approved a warrant to search the vehicle, police said.

Moulden and Spencer have since been charged with distribution of marijuana, police said.

Anyone with information on Moulden’s or Spencer’s whereabouts can call police at 609-625-2700.
