Four Pennsylvania residents were arrested in Atlantic City during a stop where guns, drugs and materials for a meth lab were recovered, authorities said.
At 10:37 a.m. on Thursday, Atlantic City Police Officer Aaron Jones stopped a car in the 1500 block of Atlantic Avenue after observing a drug sale, police said.
All four of the car's occupants were arrested after officers found a 22-caliber rifle, a handgun, 17 grams of methamphetamine, a small amount of heroin and a large bag containing items to cook, produce, and store methamphetamine, according to Lt. Kevin Fair, a police department spokesman.
They also were charged with possessing ghost guns and dealing drugs with 1,000 feet of a school zone, Fair said.
The New Jersey State Police Hazardous Materials Response Team was called in to assist.
Arrested on multiple drug and weapons charges were: Colleen Coffin, 41, of Havertown, PA; Timothy Collins, 34, of Downington, PA; Juliya Hess, 27, of Downington, PA; and Timothy Kurkierewicz, 41, of Havertown, PA.
All four suspects were being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
