Police Arrest 52 Individuals in First 12 Days of 2018

Middletown NJ Police Department Active During the Early Part of 2018

The Middletown Township Police Department has announced that they have arrested 52 individuals for various different criminal offenses from January 1 through January 13, 2018.

Of the fifty-two individuals that had been arrested during the first two weeks of 2018, twenty-six of them were for outstanding bench warrants for various different reasons and two of them were for domestic violence incidents. According to the Middletown Patch, the police department responded to more than 1,600 calls for service, which include 38 motor vehicle accidents and 87 burglary alarms during that time period. Middletown is the largest Township in Monmouth County and is home to more than 65,000 people, so as a result, it tends to deal with its fair share of crime but this is a rather tremendous amount of police action for such a small time period. Of the 52 individuals arrested, two were charged with driving while intoxicated; five were charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia; two were charged with obstructing the administration of law; one was charged with resisting arrests; one was charged with disorderly conduct and one was charged with criminal mischief. Since the vast majority of the individuals arrested were charged with disorderly persons offenses, they will be forced to appear in the Middletown Municipal Court to answer for the charges. The other individuals charged with indictable offenses, also known as felonies will be forced to answer their charges in the Monmouth County Superior Court, which is located in Freehold.
