A man was literally weighing drugs, while in the possession of a loaded handgun, in broad daylight, on the streets of Atlantic City.

This police incident took place on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at 11:11 a.m.

This is how brazen all of this has become.

The Atlantic City Police Department promptly arrested Christian Parcaro … as Atlantic City Police Officers Danish Mohammad and Ridge Gradel were patrolling South Florida Avenue.

They observed Parcaro weighing a small object on a scale and determined that his actions were a distribution of narcotics.

The officers approached Parcaro and saw that cocaine was on the scale. He also had a single bag of heroin in his hand. Parcaro was taken into custody without incident. He was found in possession of a loaded handgun and additional drugs, according to Atlantic City Police Lieutenant Kevin Fair.
