WILDWOOD CREST — A North Wildwood man is facing weapon and drug charges after police searched his vehicle and home, Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland said Friday.
A concerned person alerted police that Sebastian Ramagosa, 23, was in possession of a handgun, Sutherland said, which prompted the investigation.
Wildwood Crest police, with the assistance of the prosecutor’s Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Task Force, obtained a warrant to search Ramagosa’s vehicle Wednesday. Authorities seized about a pound of marijuana, 1,000 THC vape cartridges and $12,000 in cash, Sutherland said in a news release.
On Thursday, the task force and North Wildwood police searched Ramagosa’s residence in the 300 block of East 23rd Avenue. There, they seized a 9mm ghost gun — a weapon without a serial number, making it difficult to trace — two high-capacity 9mm magazines, drug paraphernalia and packaging material, $802 and about 26 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $100,000.
