Atlantic City Police made a massive drug bust this week when they seized more than 10,000 individual bags of heroin and over a pound of cocaine at a home on Caspian Avenue.

How the Drug Bust Went Down

Detectives with the city's Special Investigations Section had been watching an apartment on the 1300 block of Caspain Avenue they thought was being used to store and distribute drugs.

On Wednesday, police pulled over a vehicle and arrested James Clegg Jr., 33, of Atlantic City, and Alvin Whittaker, 31, of Atlantic City when they found they had 50 bags of heroin and more than $8,400 in cash with them.

Juan Howard, 30, of Atlantic City was also arrested for outstanding warrants after he was seen in the area of the stop.
