EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Two men were arrested early Saturday on weapons and drug charges after officers found loaded handguns during a vehicle stop on the Black Horse Pike, police said Monday.
At 1:05 a.m., Officer Johnathan Nieves stopped a car for motor vehicle violations near the Inn of the Dove, Egg Harbor Township police Lt. Robert Gray said.
Gray said officers searched the car and found two loaded handguns, brass knuckles, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Carlos Rosado, 20, and Reshaun Spense, 19, both of Atlantic City, were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of weapons, including a handgun, high-capacity magazine, hollow-point ammunition, a silencer and possession of a weapon while committing a controlled dangerous substance crime. Spence also was charged with possession of brass knuckles.
Police said a warrant was authorized by Municipal Court Judge Marc Nahmad for Rosado, who was taken to the Atlantic County Jjail in Mays Landing.
Spense is also being held in the jail on unrelated warrants issues by the FBI’s National Crime Information Center.
