Handgun and Drugs Recovered, 2 Arrested

For Immediate Release: June 30, 2022

On June 28, 2022, members of the Atlantic City Police Department’s Special Investigations Section conducted a surveillance operation in the 2600 block of Pacific Avenue in response to numerous complaints concerning illegal narcotics distribution and quality of life issues throughout the block.

At approximately 2:10 PM, detectives observed an illegal narcotics transaction between David Nesbitt and Gregory Kinash. Nesbitt was found to be in possession of 19.6 grams or approximately 80 wax folds of heroin, 1.9 grams of crack cocaine, 1 crushed white and blue pill, a black scale, and 50 grams of marijuana. Kinash was in possession of approximately 1 gram of crack cocaine. Both males were taken into custody without incident.

An ensuing investigation led detectives to a nearby motel located in the 3000 block of Pacific Avenue where it was determined Nesbitt had rented a room. Detectives subsequently obtained a court approved search warrant for the room and executed the warrant a short time later. Recovered inside the room was a loaded semi-automatic handgun fitted with a high capacity magazine, an additional 100 wax folds of Heroin, and 122 grams of marijuana all packaged for street sale.  Approximately $2,510.00 in US currency was seized believed to be proceeds of illegal narcotics sales. The recovered handgun was also determined to be a “Ghost Gun”, a firearm that lacks a serial number, rendering the weapon difficult to trace. The investigation was led by Detective Eric Evans.

ARRESTED: David Nesbitt, 22, of Atlantic City.

CHARGES: Unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon during a CDS offense, possession of a “Ghost Gun”, possession of a high capacity magazine, possession of CDS (2 Counts), possession with the intent to distribute CDS (3 Counts), distribution of CDS within 1000 feet Public School (3 Counts), distribution of CDS within 500 ft Public Park (2 Counts), money laundering, and possession of CDS paraphernalia.

ARRESTED: Gregory Kinash, 51, of Millville, NJ.

CHARGES: Possession of CDS.

Nesbitt was remanded to the Atlantic County Justice Facility. Kinash was issued a summons and released pending a future court date. Charges are mere allegations and the accused are considered innocent until proven guilty.
