Less than a week earlier, about 4 p.m. Feb. 11, township patrol officers went to the intersection of Tuckahoe and Janvier roads after a report of a minor car crash, police said. There, they found Jamaal Harris Jr., 20, of Vineland, who was driving the car that crashed.
Police determined that Harris had a controlled dangerous substance, police said. When officers told him that his car would be searched and impounded because he had no insurance, he became combative and resisted arrest, police said.

Harris was charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of justice and possession of a controlled dangerous substance and was released with a pending court date.
Harris’ car was towed from the intersection and police were granted a search warrant by a Gloucester County Superior Court Judge, police said. They executed the search warrant on Thursday and found a Browning .22 caliber handgun in the trunk, which was checked through the National Crime Information center and found to be stolen from a firearms dealer in Georgia.
Harris turned himself in to township police Friday and was charged with unlawful possession of a handgun and receiving stolen property. He was remanded to the Salem County jail pending a detention hearing.
