Keegan V. Thomson, 29, was also found in possession of a .9mm handgun stolen out of Fayetville, North Carolina. Galloway detectives seized $24,652 in cash from drug proceeds at his home following a month-long investigation that ended with the Atlantic County ERT Team executing a search warrant on his East Ocean Avenue home.
Galloway patrol officers were also involved in the operation.
Thomson was charged with second degree possession with the intent to distribute heroin, possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, committing a drug offense while in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.
He was released pending his appearance in court after posting $100,000 full cash bail.
