On Friday, April 27, 2018, members of the Middle Township Police Department's Street Crimes Unit executed a Court Authorized search warrant at 3 Lacivita Drive, in the Cape May Court House section of Middle Township with the assistance of the Cape May County SWAT Team and the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office. 
As a result, Craig Byrd (40) and Matthew Lindholm (40) of the address listed above were arrested.  Located in the residence was approximately 3 pounds of marijuana, 20 grams of cocaine, $12,521.00 in cash, a .45 caliber handgun, 2 shotguns, a military Bazooka, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia.
Byrd was charged with Possession of Cocaine (3rd Degree), Possession of Cocaine with Intent Over 1/2 Ounce (2nd Degree), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (DP Offense) and lodged in the Cape May County Jail.
