Almost three months’ after a Cherry Hill man appeared before the St. George’s Magistrate Court on drug-related charges linking him to a drug bust in the Boca area where some 126 lbs of Marijuana was discovered in a wrecked vehicle, a second individual is making a similar journey for the same incident.
