A 21-year-old man from Galloway is in trouble with the law after cops in Atlantic City addressed complaints about drug distribution in city.

According to Atlantic City Police, two officers observed Adam Jones, Jr., of Galloway, loitering in a parking lot in the first south block of Florida Avenue on Saturday. Officials say Jones was, "continually engaging with individuals as they walked down the street."

Officers took note to what Jones was doing and they say they saw him conduct a drug deal with an unknown man.
