A 33-year-old Manahawkin woman has been charged with drug possession, and her passenger arrested on outstanding warrant following a traffic stop, Barnegat Township police said.
On Jan. 9th at 9:36 p.m., Ptl. Nicholas Dapuzzo arrested Jennifer Holland for possession of marijuana after stopping Holland's car on West Bay Avenue near 4th Street.
Dapuzzo stopped Holland's car after a random Mobile Data Terminal inquiry indicated that Holland had a suspended driver's license.
During the course of the stop, Dapuzzo received consent to search Holland's vehicle. During the ensuing search, Dapuzzo recovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Holland's passenger, Christopher Schlenger, 35, of Manahawkin was also arrested after a warrant check found him to have $4,422 in outstanding warrants out of Monmouth County for contempt of court.
