Alabama Fugitive Captured with Gun, Drugs in Riverdale, New Jersey

NJ State Troopers Arrest Alabama Man Accused of Possessing Loaded Handgun and Marijuana

Gun Crime Lawyer Riverdale NJNew Jersey State troopers recently arrested an Alabama man who was reportedly on the run from law enforcement. The suspect is 41-year-old Corey Shane Cagle of Centre, Alabama. According to NJ authorities, Cagle was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Route 287 in Riverdale, New Jersey. When NJ State troopers arrived at the scene of the crash, they ran a computer check on Cagle and reportedly learned that he was wanted by police in Alabama for drug crimes. Cagle was then placed under arrest.

According to criminal complaints, a New Jersey State trooper who responded to the site of the auto accident in Riverdale found marijuana and prescription painkillers in Cagle’s Dodge Ram 3500. Police also allegedly found a loaded Smith & Wesson Model 438 .38-caliber revolver in the vehicle. During a later search of Cagle at police headquarters, police allegedly discovered him in possession of marijuana rolling papers. Authorities indicated that the handgun found in Cagle’s vehicle was loaded with Hornady Critical Defense .38-caliber hollow point bullets.

Penalties for Gun & Drug Charges in Riverdale, New Jersey

Cagle faces numerous criminal charges in both New Jersey and Alabama. Depending on the circumstances of his case in NJ, it is possible that he will have to deal with the consequences of his criminal charges in Riverdale (including a possible prison sentence) before being extradited to Alabama to face the other charges. The New Jersey charges include unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of hollow point bullets, simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal prescription drug possession.

It is important to note that even if Cagle was licensed to carry the firearm in Alabama, he would still be subject to criminal weapons charges in New Jersey if he did not also have a license to carry for NJ. Moreover, the NJ Graves Act imposes minimum mandatory terms of incarceration in gun possession cases, which means that Cagle could potentially be looking at several years behind bars if convicted on just the weapons offense charges. In the meantime, Cagle is being held at the Morris County jail in Morristown, New Jersey.
