Six days after police in Little Silver arrested a Red Bank man on drug possession charges, they arrested him again Wednesday after finding a loaded pistol and holl-point bullets in his impounded car, the Asbury Park Press reports today.

From the article:

Around 2:25 a.m. Oct. 30, Officer Michael Lahey stopped a BMW on Fox Hill Drive for a motor vehicle violation, Police Chief Shannon Giblin said.

The driver, Kareem J. Smith, 19, of Red Bank, was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, believed to be cocaine, the chief said. Smith also was issued motor vehicle summonses, police said.

He was released from the Monmouth County Jail, Freehold Township, after posting bail set at $15,000.

Police impounded the BMW, and after further investigation by Lahey and Sgt. Daniel Shaffery, they searched the car and found a loaded .357 Magnum revolver inside, Giblin said.

On Wednesday, police charged him with possession of a weapon without the proper permits, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes and possession of hollow point bullets.

Bail was set at $100,000, and he was released after posting bond.
