EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP –  A robbery investigation led Egg Harbor Township Police to uncover heroin, crack cocaine and other drugs from a car that also contained an infant.

According to police, Hallie Thompson, 21, of Williamstown and Anthony Williams, 34, of Pleasantville were arrested and charged with possession of heroin, possession of crack cocaine, and possession of a prescription legend drug after police came across them standing outside of a 1999 Lexus during a robbery call at the Budget Motel in the West Atlantic City section of the township on Thursday, Aug. 21.

Williams was arrested on Wednesday, Aug. 27 in Pleasantville. Bail was set at $35,000 cash by the Honorable H. Robert Switzer.  Williams was lodged at the Atlantic County jail in lieu of bail.

Thompson has not been arrested and is wanted on warrants for these charges.  The Division of Child Protection and Permanency was notified in order to pursue potential child abuse charges.

 Officers Joseph Coady and Shane Gilson reported their preliminary investigation revealed that narcotics were allegedly inside the vehicle, in which an infant was also found. Atlantic City K-9 Police Officer John Devlin and his canine partner Clancy responded to the scene. The police dog detected a positive indication of drugs inside the vehicle, which was then impounded and towed to the Egg Harbor Township Police Department.

At the department, a search warrant was executed by Detectives Scott Hiltner and Rich Vogt, who found heroin and other related narcotics in the vehicle.
