Atlantic City, NJ, Cops: Five Arrested for Drugs After Neighbors Complain
The saying, "if you see something, say something," works and five people from South Jersey who have been arrested on drug-related charges can verify that claim.
Cops in Atlantic City say neighbors in the area of South Carolina and Baltic Avenues were having an issue with drugs in their neighborhood, so they talked to police. As a result, officials set up a surveillance operation that resulted in four men, one woman, and a juvenile being arrested Wednesday morning. A total of 365 bags of heroin and more than 10 grams of cocaine were seized.
22-year-old Ibn Demps of Atlantic City, 23-year-old Ricky Gilliard of Atlantic City, 40-year-old Mary Inman of Mays Landing, 28-year-old DeShawn Neiderman of Ventnor, and a 17-year-old man from Atlantic City were cuffed and are all facing various drug possession and/or drug distribution-related charges.
All five were released on a summons with future court dates.
The Atlantic City Police Department reminds residents that they welcome information on crime-related issues happening in the city. Call (609) 347-5858 to speak to an officer.
The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
