Wildwood police arrest report

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.

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.

People convicted of second-degree crimes in New Jersey face a potential penalty of five to 10 years in state prison, while third-degree crimes come with a possible sentence of three to five years. 

Moss and Lee were processed and released pending court proceedings. 

The teenager was charged with juvenile possession of marijuana, police said.
