Three Little Egg Harbor residents and one from neighboring Tuckerton have been arrested at two separate traffic stops, where police found them in possession of heroin.

It was the Little Egg Harbor Police Harbor Street Crimes Unit who pulled over a gray Jeep Wrangler on Nugentown Road near Poor Man's Parkway, around 11:24 pm on Thursday night February 3, after establishing probable cause during a drug investigation.

Police then searched the vehicle, and driver, and found an undisclosed amount of suspected heroin along with drug paraphernalia.

William E Hancock Sadowski, 32, of Little Egg Harbor was then placed under arrest and issued a summons charging him with Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance.

He was then released, pending future court proceedings.

After police searched the vehicle, and everyone inside, they found undisclosed quantities of suspect heroin, and suboxone sublingual films.
