4 mins read

On Thursday January 19, 2017 two separate incidents resulted in arrests and charges for multiple persons.

At 12:09 am, Police Officer Keith French was on patrol on Sixty Acre Boulevard when he conducted a motor vehicle stop with a 1999 Chevy after making observations of motor vehicle violations. As he approached the vehicle to speak with the driver of the vehicle, he detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside. It was determined that there was an outstanding arrest warrant for the female driver out of Wall Township and she was placed under arrest. A search of the vehicle then resulted in the seizure of marijuana packaged for sale in baggies, a scale, other items consistent with narcotics distribution and cash. The investigation determined that these items were the belongings of the male passenger of the vehicle.

Arrested:

Jahvonte Alexander, age 23 of Ocean Grove. She was processed on the outstanding arrest warrant out of Wall Township and later turned over to the Wall Township Police Department.

Hakeem Smith, age 27 of Freehold. He was processed and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute. He was later lodged in the Ocean County Jail after being processed.

Police Officers Wes Thomason and Mitch Kafton assisted with the investigation.

The second incident resulted in multiple arrests which were a result of an ongoing investigation of illegal narcotic distribution by the members of the Jackson Police Detective Bureau. The results of the investigation led to the service of a search warrant.
