HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — One suspect has been released from jail, while another is being sought in connection with the seizure of 11 pounds of marijuana during a vehicle stop last week.
Police said that at 7:59 p.m. Dec. 6, Officer Nicole Odell stopped a vehicle at Wrangleboro Road and the Atlantic City Expressway entrance. Odell said a strong odor of marijuana was detected and a search warrant was executed. Police found 11 pounds of marijuana, with an estimate street value of $40,000, in the trunk of the vehicle, police said.
The driver, Kevin Moulden, 26, of Egg Harbor Township, and passenger Timothy Spencer, 29, of Baltimore, were also found to be in possession of more than $11,000 cash and drug-packing material, police said.
Moulden and Spencer were issued summonses at the scene. Warrants were later issued for both.
Police said Spencer remains at large.
Molden turned himself in to authorities Wednesday. He was in the Atlantic County jail but was released the following day per bail reform.
Molden had been previously arrested by Hamilton Township police in May 2010 on multiple weapons possession and heroin distribution charges. Police said Molden also has a pending court case related to an investigation in July 2016, for possession of approximately 10 pounds of marijuana.
