January 31, 2015, Sgt. Richard Mazza observed a suspicious vehicle parked on Spruce Drive in the Richard Estates section of the Township. Officer Joseph Fastige and Officer Kyle Rickvalsky arrived to assist.
During the investigation, it was learned that the two occupants had outstanding warrants out of Camden City. Westville resident Kimberly Ott, 22, was found to be in possession of hypodermic syringes and drug paraphernalia. Atco resident Robert Stevens, 39, was found to be in possession of 28 bags of crack cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
Ott was released on her own recognizance by Camden City and released on summonses for the local charges. Stevens was transferred to Ocean County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail. The 2005 Ford Taurus that was operated by Stevens and Ott was seized pending forfeiture. This matter is pending court action.
