ATLANTIC CITY — Two city men were arrested Tuesday morning after police found marijuana, cocaine and drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop in the city’s Venice Park neighborhood.

At 1:51 a.m., Officers Ivaylo Ivanov and Wahab Malik stopped a car at Ohio and Morningside avenues, police said in a news release. Ivanov spoke with the driver, who identified himself as Warren Hayes but did not give Ivanov any identification or a driver’s license.

Ivanov asked Hayes to get out of the car, and as he did, Ivanov saw marijuana on the flood board, police said. Hayes and his passenger, James Sanders Jr., were arrested after the officers took the marijuana from the car and also found 67 grams of cocaine and assorted drug paraphernalia.

At the Public Safety Building, police found a bag of marijuana on Hayes, and also found out his real name is Michael Hayes.

Hayes, 47, was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, hindering apprehension and a motor vehicle offense.

Sanders, 29, was charged with possession of CDS, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both men were released on summonses with a future court date.
