GTPD Media Release: Body Cavity Search Yields Significant Quantity of Heroin Heroin Dealer and Three Buyers Arrested

On 10/30/2014, The Gloucester Township Police Department Operations Response Unit was conducting enhanced criminal patrol operations in the area of Revere Run/Loch Lomond Dr. due to reports of increased criminal activity in this area, specifically the dealing of heroin and oxycdone. Patrol officers were in the area of Wawa 2700 Sicklerville Road, Gloucester Township. Officers observed suspicious activity in the parking lot of Wawa consistent with a drug transaction.

Two vehicles were stopped leaving the area of the Wawa parking lot. The first vehicle, a Mazda occupied by three males was stopped in the area of the Wawa. Officers observed a bag of heroin on the driver’s side floor of the vehicle. A voluntary consent search of the vehicle was conducted. Heroin, clonazepam pills, and hypodermic syringes were located inside the vehicle. Driver, Jonathan Ryan of Washington Township, passengers Charles Yates of Washington Township and Earl Shone of Clementon were arrested for Possession of CDS/Syringes.

The driver of the second vehicle, Anthony Adams of Atco, was stopped in the area of Wilson Avenue, Washington Township. Adams had just met with an occupant of above vehicle. A voluntary consent search was conducted and officers located a hypodermic syringe. The passenger, Tyeisha Jackson of Winslow Township and Adams were arrested for possession of a hypodermic needle and transported to police headquarters.
Officers observed Adams consistently reaching in the rear of his pants while in the patrol unit. A search warrant for a body cavity search was obtained, which was conducted at a local hospital, later revealed that Adams was hiding a significant amount of heroin in his body. Several bundles of heroin were recovered from the search warrant.

The arrest of these individuals is another example of the continued enhanced criminal enforcement campaigns targeting those who illegally distribute narcotics in Gloucester Township.

The Gloucester Township Police Community Relations Bureau is promoting a safe 2014 Halloween.

The following guidelines are provided by the FDA, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  1. Wear costumes made of fire-retardant materials; look for “flame resistant” on the label. If you make your costume, use flame-resistant fabrics such as polyester or nylon.
  2. Wear bright, reflective costumes or add strips of reflective tape so you’ll be more visible; make sure the costumes aren’t so long that you’re in danger of tripping.
  3. Wear makeup and hats rather than masks that can obscure your vision.
  4. Test the makeup you plan to use by putting a small amount on the arm of the person who will be wearing it a couple of days in advance. If a rash, redness, swelling, or other signs of irritation develop where the makeup was applied, that’s a sign of a possible allergy.
  5. Check FDA’s list of color additives to see if makeup additives are FDA approved. If they aren’t approved for their intended use, don’t use it.
  6. Don’t wear decorative contact lenses unless you have seen an eye care professional and gotten a proper lens fitting and instructions for using the lenses.

Safe Treats

Eating sweet treats is also a big part of the fun on Halloween. If you’re trick-or-treating, health and safety experts say you should remember these tips:

  1. Don’t eat candy until it has been inspected at home.
  2. Trick-or-treaters should eat a snack before heading out, so they won’t be tempted to nibble on treats that haven’t been inspected.
  3. Tell children not to accept—or eat—anything that isn’t commercially wrapped.
  4. Parents of very young children should remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys.
  5. Inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes, or tears in wrappers. Throw away anything that looks suspicious.

If you have any questions you may contact the Gloucester Township Police Community Relations Bureau, Ptl. Jenn McLaughlin at or by calling 856-228-4011. If you need immediate assistance you may call 856-228-4500 or 9-1-1 for an emergency.
