On Thursday, Middle Township Police say they discovered Albert Macfarlane, Jr., of Goshen was in possession of a golf cart that was reported to be stolen from Sea Pines Campground. While they were conducting surveillance, cops witnessed Macfarlane trade the golf cart for a motorcycle. Cops were able to stop the person that traded for the golf cart, they confirmed it was the one that was stolen, and it will eventually be returned to the campground.

Officers later located Macfarlane at his home on Route 47 North and they arrested him for receiving stolen property. Cops say while they were placing Macfarlane under arrest, they noticed drug paraphernalia, a gun, and other possible stolen items in plain view. A subsequent search of his home revealed approximately 1/4-ounce of methamphetamine, an amount of heroin, an amount of steroids, two handguns, an AR-15, two long guns, hollow point ammunition, AR-15 ammunition, drug paraphernalia, and prescription Xanax pills.

Macfarlane has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, possession of steroids, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of hypodermic needles, possession of a weapon during CDS distribution, possession of an assault weapon, two counts of unlawful possession of a handgun, two counts of unlawful possession of a rifle, possession of high capacity magazines, receiving stolen property, and fencing stolen property.

Albert Macfarlane, Jr., was subsequently charged on a warrant and lodged in the Cape May County Correctional Facility pending court proceedings.
