According to a press release from the Wildwood Police Department, their officers responded to the area of 14th and New Jersey Avenue around 8:45 Wednesday night for a report of two abandoned suitcases.

At the scene, cops found a "large quantity of marijuana, packaged for sale," inside the suitcases.

Police say, "surveillance was conducted and shortly thereafter, Michael Shank, 57, of Bristol, PA returned to the area to retrieve the suitcases."
