A.C. Man Arrested for Driving on a Suspended License, Among Other Things
If you don't have a license, you shouldn't be driving. But if you are, having a warrant out for your arrest won't help the situation... nor will being in possession of cocaine. And if you have a warrant out for your arrest and you have cocaine on you, the person you're driving around with probably shouldn't have cocaine on him, either.
Tuesday evening, an Atlantic City police officer saw 34-year-old Jameel Stephens of the city driving a car in the 300 block of Atlantic Avenue. Police say Stephens does not have a valid license and he also had an active warrant for his arrest. After stopping the car, cops say Stephens was arrested without incident. His passenger, 38-year-old Anthony Williams of Pleasantville, was also arrested after detectives located 84 grams of cocaine inside the car. Stephens was found in possession of an additional 3.5 grams of cocaine.
Both Stephens and Williams are facing possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), possession with intent to distribute CDS, possession with intent to distribute CDS within 1000 feet of a school zone, and possession with intent to distribute CDS within 500 feet of a public zone charges. Stephens also received two motor vehicle summons.
Both were released on a summons with a future court date.
