Update, 1/17/13, 4:30 p.m.: Michael T. Wurst has been apprehended. He is no longer wanted by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.
Michael T. Wurst, 22, of the 400 block of South Main Street, Mantua, is wanted by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office on a warrant.
Wurst failed to appear in state Superior Court in Woodbury on Dec. 20, 2012, for a pre-sentence interview on a charge of cocaine possession.
Wurst is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair.
On Jan. 6, 2011 a Westville police officer received information that two males were en route from a Broadway apartment complex to purchase narcotics in Camden. A short time later, the officer stopped a Jeep Liberty matching the description he’d received turning into the apartment complex. The officer questioned defendant Wurst, a passenger in the vehicle. Wurst turned over three plastic bags of suspected cocaine, the officer reported. Wurst was arrested.
A Gloucester County grand jury indicted Wurst on June 22, 2011 on a charge of third degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance. He pleaded guilty on Nov. 28, 2011 to a charge of conspiracy to possess CDS.
Anyone who knows Wurst's whereabouts should not attempt to apprehend him. Instead, contact the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office at 856-384-5643 or Sgt. Barry Johnson of the prosecutor's office at 856-498-5485.
