WILDWOOD — Three city residents were charged last week after officers found distribution quantities of cocaine during a search of an apartment on East Cresse Avenue, police said.
Devon Moss, 29, Lisa Lee, 35, and a 17-year-old girl police didn't identify were arrested after a four-month investigation in alleged drug trafficking occurring at the apartment, according to a news release.
WILDWOOD — A Mays Landing man was arrested last week after police said they seized 2,000 bags of heroin from a car.
The Cape May County SWAT team raided Unit 6 at 225 E. Cresse Ave. around 7:40 p.m. Tuesday, June 27, police said. Authorities seized the cocaine, which police said was prepackaged for sale on the street, as well as a small amount of suspected marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $591 in cash allegedly from drug dealing, the release said.
Moss and Lee were charged with second-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree possession of cocaine and related crimes, according to police.

Moss and Lee were processed and released pending court proceedings.
The teenager was charged with juvenile possession of marijuana, police said.
