HARRINGTON – With the help of Harrington Police Department’s new K-9 officer, police located more than eight pounds of marijuana and suspected drug money in excess of $12,000 during a routine traffic stop March 25.

According to police, Kyle D. Camper, 31 of the 1900 block of Grand Ave. in North Bergen, NJ, was arrested on drug charges after Harrington police stopped his vehicle on South DuPont Highway for traveling 70 miles-per-hour in a 50 mile-per-hour zone around 12:30 p.m.

Police say Camper’s hands were “shaking profusely” while talking and “was acting very nervous.” Marshall, the Harrington Police Department K-9, conducted a scan of the vehicle and alerted to the presence of narcotics.

A vehicle search was then conducted during which police located a large suitcase in the truck containing several packages of marijuana and two smaller bags containing more bags of the drug.  Police also located a large amount of money inside the vehicle, according to a press release from the department.
