EHT car stop leads to arrest, recovery of drugs and cash

An Egg Harbor Township car stop led to drugs, money and the driver’s car being seized Friday.
Officer Ben Kollman stopped Samuel Jean for several motor vehicle violations at about 1:15 p.m. near the Boardwalk Honda on Tilton Road, Lt. Michael Finnerty said.
An investigation led to 5.3 ounces of cocaine and 2 grams of raw marijuana, according to the report.
Jean’s vehicle and $920 in cash were also seized.
The stop was part of a directed patrol called DDACTS, or Data Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety.
“The application of high-visibility traffic enforcement is a proven and effective countermeasure that addresses both crime and crashes whether they occur simultaneously or independently in time and/or location,” a news release stated, quoted the Bureau of Justice.
Jean, 36, of Mays Landing, was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, distribution of heroin/cocaine and failure to surrender drugs to law enforcement, along with traffic offenses.
He was taken to the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
