Driver Faces Drug Charges In Lacey After Speeding On Route 9, Cops Say

A 35-year-old man faces drug charges after he was speeding on Route 9 in Lacey, police said.

Dametrious R. Summers of Atlantic City was charged with possession of more than 50 grams of Marijuana as well as possession with the intent to distribute CDS.

At 2:05 a.m. Saturday, Patrol Officer Michael Verwey stopped a 2008 Nissan Altima for speeding and failure to maintain a lane on Route 9 near Game Farm Road in Forked River, police said.

While speaking with the driver, Verwey detected the distinct odor of marijuana. Continuing investigation led to a consent search of the vehicle and the discovery of packaged marijuana, police said.

Three individually wrapped clear bags containing marijuana were found in the trunk of the vehicle. The vehicle's registered owner and operator, Summers, was then placed under arrest, police said.

Sumners was transported to the Ocean County Jail with bail set at $25,000.

The vehicle was impounded for potential forfeiture.

An investigation is continuing into the location in Lacey Township where the CDS was to be delivered.
