Tahiem Howell, 39, of North Wildwood, a convicted felon who was arrested and released on a summons in March for drug distribution, has been arrested once again for drug distribution.
Howell faces multiple drug related distribution charges after officials executed a search warrant at Howell’s home. The arrest was the result of a joint investigation by the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs Guns and Narcotics Task Force and the North Wildwood Police Department Detective Division.
Howell was previously convicted for his role in a 2006 shooting and crack cocaine distribution scheme that sent him to prison for 7 years.
This past March, Howell was arrested again for drug distribution after being in possession of 500 bags of heroin and 6-ounces of crack cocaine. Howell was released and FREE TO GO on a summons per NJ Bail Reform – as if he had been charged with jaywalking.

A North Wildwood man previously convicted for his role in a shooting and arrested for possessing more than $20,000 of crack cocaine and heroin was arrested again Thursday after officials found distribution amounts of cocaine while executing a search warrant.
Tahiem Howell, 39, faces multiple drug charges after a joint investigation by the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs Guns and Narcotics Task Force and the North Wildwood Police Department Detective Division, authorities said.
Officials executed a search warrant at Howell’s home on the 100 block of West 26th Avenue in North Wildwood, acting Prosecutor Robert Johnson and Chief Matthew Gallagher said.
The search was a result of an investigation regarding Howell distributing crack cocaine throughout Cape May County, Johnson and Gallagher said.
In March, authorities executed a search warrant and recovered 500 bags of suspected heroin, 6 ounces of suspected crack cocaine and $2,545 in cash from Howell’s home. At the time, he was released on a summons pending court proceedings.
In 2006, Howell was sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in a 2004 shooting in Wildwood that injured three men. He also received a five-year sentence for an unrelated drug charge.
