Two Charged With Drug Offenses After Traffic Stop

A pair of Bridgeton men were arrested during Night in Venice.

While the Night in Venice parties were just getting started on Saturday, another party came to an abrupt close for two Bridgeton men driving on Wesley Avenue.

Vaughn B. King, 24, and Brock A. Price, 25, were stopped by Patrolman Richard Wilent on the 1200 block of Wesley Avenue at 7:30 p.m. July 28, and the officer smelled what he suspected was marijuana and saw a lit cigarette, according to Capt. Steven Ang of the Ocean City Police Department.

The officer's suspicions led him to search the vehicle, and he discovered bags of suspected marijuana, pill capsules with a white powdery substance, a grinder and a scale, Ang said.

The men were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The men were transported to Cape May County Correctional Center.

Essentially, this fella is upset that two drug dealers got caught. Drug dealers who will sell to anyone, including children. End of discussion.

Al Czervik your exactly right! Thats' why are kids can get illegal drugs easier than they can get legal ones! When we prohibit something we attract the criminal element, and criminals don't care who they sell too, all they care is if your kid has cash. These laws and busts make our streets and kids less safe not safer.

Pretty sure they were headed to my place. We had a reggae theme and wanted to be authentic. We scored third best in our zone without them, but we had loads of munchies left over. Go figure. With that being said, no need to go soft. I've sent younger boys to the gas chamber...felt I owed it to them. Vaughn and Brock knew the risks but were too baked to care. Let's have a Fresca!
