CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Sheriff’s deputies in Camden County got more than they bargained for this morning when they went looking for a fugitive in Camden.

They didn’t get their suspect when they stepped inside a home on Beckett Street near 4th, but what they did find took them by surprise: a stash of heroin and crack cocaine, some cash, and some serious weaponry.

“We’re talking about a Chinese-made SKS which was loaded with a 30-round magazine and a Mini 14 Bullpup which was also loaded with a 20-round magazine,” says Lt. John Fetzer with the sheriff’s office.

Four people were taken into custody, including a 16-year-old wanted on a juvenile warrant.

Fetzer believes this is part of the uptick in gang activity in Camden and shows just how serious, and dangerous, things are getting.
