On 10/29/11, at approximately 12:00 A.M., officers in the Gloucester Township Police's Operations Response Unit were conducting enhanced enforcement operations in response to a concerned citizen's tip to the Gloucester Township Police Community Relations Bureau on suspicious people and activity in the 200 block area of the LaCascata community which had been discussed one day prior at the department's weekly Crime Operations Assessment meeting.
During their pro-active patrol a suspicious male was observed standing next to an occupied vehicle. The male appeared frightened when he noticed the police vehicle and abruptly walked away from the occupied vehicle. Ptl. Matthew DiCamillo now approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Warren Davis, at which time the odor of marijuana was detected. Gloucester Township Police K9 Team, Cpl. Mark Pickard and his partner, Maximus, arrived and assisted in a search of the vehicle. As a result of the search, several sandwich bags of marijuana, a significant quantity of prescription pills, a digital scale and money were recovered.
The investigation continued following the arrest of Mr. Davis that ultimately resulted in the recovery of a .380 caliber handgun and .45 caliber hollow point cartridges at his residence. Officers contacted Winslow Township Police Department, who assisted in the recovery of the aformentioned property from his residence.
The accused, Warren T. Davis Jr., Age 34, from the 100 block of Fenway Avenue, Atco, NJ, was charged in Winslow Township with Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Certain Persons not to have Weapons.
