NC man charged with bringing weapons to NJ Coast Guard site

CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) — A North Carolina man has been charged with trying to bring an assault weapon, body armor and hollow-point bullet into a U.S. Coast Guard Training Center in New Jersey. Authorities say 25-year-old Dustin Peters of Wilmington went to the facility in Cape May to attend a graduation ceremony Thursday. They say they found the bullets during a routine vehicle search and later found the other items. The Coast Guard says it doesn't consider Peters a threat to the center or the local community. Peters is being held at the Cape May County Jail pending a court hearing. It's not immediately clear if he is represented by an attorney.
