A Dec. 29 traffic stop near the intersection of Ferry Ave and the White Horse Pike led Collingswood police to arrest a Camden City man wanted on more than $6,300 in outstanding warrants.
At 9:40 p.m., police made a motor vehicle stop in which two passengers provided false information to officers. A call to the sheriff’s department confirmed that his true identity was Dupree S. Reynolds, 21, of Camden City, who had active warrants for his arrest from five South Jersey municipalities:
- for possession of CDS ($2,500, full-cash) from Hammonton
- for hindering apprehension ($1,400) from Somerdale
- for traffic violations ($1,200) from Gloucester City
- for an undetermined charge ($778) from Camden City
- for motor vehicle violations ($500) from Bellmawr
Another passenger, Neil Reynolds, 23, of Camden City, was arrested on a warrant from Gloucester City for obstruction of justice ($500 full-cash); the driver of the vehicle was served with summonses and released at the scene.
After transporting both to police headquarters, police discovered 11 clear plastic bags containing what they believed to be crack-cocaine and two other sandwich bags also containing what they believed to be crack-cocaine in the back of the police vehicle. Some of the bags seemed to have been chewed up, police said.
As neither would admit to possession of the narcotics, Dupree Reynolds was charged with possession with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and hindering apprehension. Bail was set at $20,000 (full-cash) plus $6,378 (the amount of the active warrants).
