Two motor vehicle stops in Atlantic City around lunch time Thursday resulted in two people being arrested.
Atlantic City Police say two of their officers stopped a vehicle at Mississippi and Pacific Avenues around 11:15 Thursay morning.

Cooper was arrested after she was found to have an active warrant for her arrest. She was also found in possession of 183 bags of heroin.

From the first stop, Cooper was charged with Possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), possession with the intent to distribute CDS, contempt of court, and several motor vehicle summons. She was released on a summons with a future court date.
