ATLANTIC CITY — A Pleasantville man was arrested Saturday after police found him with 110 bags of heroin and five grams of unpackaged heroin.

At 2:13 p.m., Officers Christopher Dodson and Eric Evans were near the 1800 block of Hummock Avenue and saw Adam Jones, 20, with what they believed to be drugs, police said in a news release. The officers went up to Jones and investigated.

In addition to the heroin, Jones had a cellophane wrapper with a prescription pill inside and a second wrapper that held marijuana residue, police said.

Jones was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was released on a summons with a future court date.
