On May 5 at 9 a.m., several residents of Marlboro dialed 911 to alert the Marlboro Police Department about suspicious activity at a business on Main Street (Route 79). Police said there were several vehicles on the property where the suspicious activity was reported.
Police officers were immediately dispatched to the area and quickly located two adult males and three juvenile males, all of whom were residents of Newark or East Orange.
Following an initial investigation by the Patrol Division and follow-up investigative work by the Detective Bureau, it was determined the suspects were in a stolen vehicle. All five individuals were arrested and charged with receiving stolen property and joy riding, Capt. Stephen Levy said.
Two adult males were transported to the Monmouth County jail, Freehold Township. One juvenile male was transported to the Essex County Juvenile Detention Center, Newark, on an outstanding warrant. Two juvenile males were released to the custody of a family member, Levy said.
“This was a true team effort with several officers from the Patrol Division, Support Services and Administration involved,” the captain said.
In a post on social media, police thanked Marlboro’s residents and business owners for their attentiveness and vigilance as police continue to deal with an ongoing issue of automobile theft facing the community.
Police are reminding everyone to lock their vehicle’s doors, remove their key fobs and garage door openers from their vehicles and to report suspicious activity immediately.
Two men from Manalapan have been arrested in connection with a series of car burglaries that occurred in the western Monmouth County municipalities of Millstone Township and Upper Freehold Township.
Michael Guzman, 38, and David Voight, 27, were arrested on April 27 by the New Jersey State Police, which patrols Millstone and Upper Freehold. The two men have each been charged with burglary and theft, according to the state police.
According to the state police, about 20 cars were burglarized in those two neighboring municipalities during April. Various items were stolen from the vehicles that were targeted.
During an investigation, the state police received surveillance footage from a resident. The footage showed two suspects burglarizing vehicles, according to the state police. Guzman and Voight were subsequently identified as the suspects.
According to the state police, Guzman and Voight were arrested at their residence in Manalapan.
A search warrant was executed at the residence and on Voight’s car. Several items linked to the burglaries were recovered and will be returned to their owners, according to the state police.
Guzman and Voight were detained at the Monmouth County jail, Freehold Township, according to the state police.
The New Jersey School Boards Association has developed a community resource, “A Guide to Board of Education Meetings in New Jersey.”
The brochure outlines and delineates the roles and responsibilities of boards of education and superintendents, provides guidance for members of the public who wish to address matters of concern with their boards during public meetings, and explains board meeting procedures, according to a press release.
“Boards of education are often on the front lines in addressing concerns, answering questions and clearing up misinformation about government mandates and curriculum decisions among other important matters,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA executive director. “As elected school officials, we respect the taxpayers’ right to know and engage in the local education process, which is vital to a well-functioning system.”
School district administrators are encouraged to print and share the brochure at their school board meetings, post the link on their official websites, and use the information as a resource for school officials to refresh their understanding about state regulations concerning the protocol for closed sessions and access to public records, according to the press release.
The brochure in its entirety may be accessed at https://www.njsba.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/guide-to-boe-meeting.pdf
“We hope this information can serve as a useful tool to achieve a better public understanding about how school boards and districts function and how residents can participate,” Feinsod said.
