CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — A detention hearing was postponed Wednesday for the North Carolina man charged after a loaded handgun, hollow point bullets, high-capacity magazines and an altered AK-47 were found in his car last week at Coast Guard Training Center Cape May.
After a less than five-minute appearance in Cape May County Superior Court, the hearing for Dustin A. Peters, 25, of Wilmington, was pushed to Friday at the request of Chief Assistant Prosecutor Dara Paley.

Peters, who was shackled and wore a bright orange county jail jumpsuit, is charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of a machine gun, possession of an assault firearm, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of hollow point ammunition and 10 counts of possession of high-capacity ammunition magazines.
After Peters’ first appearance, Paley requested a three-day statutory adjournment, which Judge Bernard E. DeLury granted.
Peters was stopped at the entrance of the base Thursday by Coast Guard officials for a random security check, according to the affidavit of probable cause. They found 12 hollow point bullets, a loaded Canik 9mm handgun, 10 high-capacity magazines and an AK-47 style rifle that had been altered by Peters to be automatic.
