The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

Po­lice in New Jersey said an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a re­ported plot to kill a po­lice of­fi­cer re­sulted in the ar­rests of three peo­ple on firearm and drug charges.

As­bury Park po­lice said the probe be­gan af­ter a re­port that a local gang mem­ber had told sev­eral peo­ple “he was plot­ting to kill an As­bury Park po­lice of­fi­cer.”

Au­thor­i­ties searched an As­bury Park home early Fri­day and ar­rested two men and a wo­man on charges of pos­sess­ing a de­faced firearm, un­law­fully pos­sess­ing weapons, and drug pos­ses­sion.

The wo­man also was ar­rested on two child en­dan­ger­ment counts.

Po­lice re­ported find­ing cash, weapons, drugs and an $800 bicycle bought “from a drug ad­dict on the streets for $5.”

No charges have been filed in con­nec­tion with the re­ported plot.
