A North Cape May man was arrested Friday after complaints from his ex-girlfriend to local police led to a search of his home and a temporary restraining order.

Ernest “Drew” Paulus, 46, was arrested for and charged with aggravated assault, two counts of invasion of Privacy, terroristic Threats, and various other charges stemming from his relationship with an ex-girlfriend.

On June 30, the Lower Township Police Detectives received a report from the North Wildwood Police Department that a female victim was at their headquarters reporting her ex-boyfriend had been sharing inappropriate photographs of her. The woman went on to share that Paulus had, “pointed a shotgun at her head several months ago and told her not to report him to the police,” according to the police report.

Detectives responded to the issue and escorted the woman back to the Lower Township Police Department to apply for a temporary restraining order, and provide a tape-recorded statement regarding the incidents.

Honorable Judge Hillegass of Lower Township proceeded to authorize a search warrant of Paulus’ home, located on the 600 block of Howland Avenue in North Cape May.

As detectives waited for the Cape May County SWAT team to assist in serving the warrant, they noticed Paulus leave his residence in a vehicle, officials said. However he was stopped and detained quickly before he could flee the scene.

Eventually the search warrant was executed and as a result, a cell phone, computer, and other electronics were seized, according to investigators. In addition, marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia were also removed from the residence, police said.

The suspect was placed in Cape May County Correctional Center after being charged.

Police say additional complaints for the defendant are currently pending, after suspected steroids were also recovered in his home.
