Dad DONALD PETERSON was just teaching his son the value of hardwork and entrepreneurship. Just one minor problem: it was in an illegal drug distribution business. Thanks to Dad's fine fatherly example, the son has been arrested too.

EGG HARBOR CITY - A father and son were arrested for drug distribution Friday after a lengthy investigation led police to their Philadelphia Avenue home.
At approximately 4 p.m. Friday, police served a search warrant at the Philadelphia Avenue residence of Donald and Daniel Peterson after more than a month-long investigation into the father and son's drug-related activities, Chief John McColgan said.
Donald, 52, and Daniel, 20, Peterson were found with more than 135 grams of marijuana, miscellaneous pills and drug paraphernalia, McColgan said. More than $800 in cash was also seized in the arrest, he said.
The investigation was conducted by Det. Steve Hadley and Patrolman Dylan Hutton, who were assisted by the state police and Det. Brian Zech of the Mullica Township police department.
The father and son were arrested without incident and released on summonses.
"This is an example of our ongoing efforts to rid Egg Harbor City of illegal narcotics," McColgan said
