Two Arrested: Drugs, Guns, and a Bazooka Seized from Cape May Court House Home
Two people have been arrested in Cape May Court House after authorities raided a home and found drugs, guns -- and a bazooka -- on Friday.
Middle Township Police say they executed a search warrant at 3 Lacivita Drive in Cape May Court House late last week. Following the raid, 40-year-old Craig Byrd and 40-year-old Matthew Lindholm were arrested.
In a press release, authorities said they found approximately 3 pounds of marijuana, 20 grams of cocaine, over $12,500 in cash, a .45 caliber handgun, two shotguns, a military Bazooka, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia inside the house.
Byrd was charged with Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Cocaine with Intent Over 1/2 Ounce, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; he was lodged in the Cape May County Jail.
Lindholm was charged with Possession of Marijuana Over 50 Grams, Possession with the intent to Distribute Marijuana Over 1 Ounce, Possession of a Handgun, Possession of Hollow Point Bullets, two counts of Possession of a Shotgun, Possession of a Handgun During a CDS Offense, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (DP Offense). Lindholm was lodged in the Cape May County Jail.
Authorities say the Bazooka that was found is believed to have been taken from Iraq while Lindholm was in the military and he did not have permission to take the weapon. Further charges are pending as an investigation continues into the status of the Bazooka and its ability to fire a missile.
