Three people have been arrested after police in Camden County investigated two smoke shops.

Following a nearly month-long investigation into the illegal sale of controlled dangerous substances, on September 19th, the Gloucester Township Police Department, with help from other law enforcement agencies and the State of New Jersey, executed search warrants at two smoke shops:

  • The Exotic Smoke Shop - 1234 Chews Landing Road, Clementon

Authorities say a large amount of raw packaged marijuana, marijuana edibles, marijuana vape cartridges, nitrous oxide canisters, and thousands of untaxed tobacco products were seized.
