A Browns Mills man is sitting in the Ocean County Jail following his arrest in Manchester where police found him with a stash of drugs ready to be sold while an infant child was in the back seat of his vehicle.

Manchester Police said their Narcotics Enforcement Team was conducting a narcotics surveillance operation when they pulled over 34-year old Christian Troy's 1998 Mercedes Benz along Route 571 and Pheasant Street.

Police found the infant in the car as well, who wasn't fastened in a child safety seat.

Then officers found Troy was in possession of approximately 13.5 grams of crack cocaine, 8 grams of methamphetamine and 10 doses of heroin, all packaged for distribution.
