Two Manasquan men facing drug distribution charges made their initial appearances in Superior Court on Thursday, court records show.
John D. Cameron, 23, and Andrew S. Kelly, 25, both of the same address on Brielle Road, were arrested on Tuesday and each charged with alleged possession of over 100 grams -- close to a quarter pound -- of marijuana with intent to distribute, according to criminal complaints.
Both men made their initial appearances before Judge John G. Colannino in Freehold Thursday, facing charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with the intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, the complaints say.
In addition, Cameron was charged with resisting arrest for allegedly charging at Det. Michael Bonanno during the execution of a search warrant in an attempt to flee and/or destroy evidence and avoid being handcuffed, the complaint says.
Cameron also faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia -- one digital scale and packaging material -- and possession of prescription legend drugs, the complaint says.
Cameron's bail has been set at $30,000 with no 10 percent option, while Kelly's bail was set at $20,000 with no 10 percent option, the complaints say.
