Trenton man charged after weapons, ammo stash found in Pinelands

A Trenton man faces numerous charges after authorities say they found a large cache of weapons and ammunition in the New Jersey Pinelands.

Lacey police were in the area Sunday afternoon looking for trespassers and criminal activity when they came across a suspicious vehicle. They soon found 42-year-old Bruce Post III, who was dressed in combat gear, and another man nearby.

Investigators found an AK-47, a 9mm handgun, eight 30-round magazines, a 100-round drum magazine and other ammunition they say was hidden in the woods.

Post was charged with illegally possessing a weapon as a felon and several weapons counts. His bail was set at $400,000 cash.

It wasn’t known Monday if Post has retained an attorney.

The other man hasn’t been charged. But authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
