GANT Police Blotter

Lawrence Township

  • Police reported on a drug-related incident that occurred Tuesday at the Lawrence Township Rec Park. During routine patrol, an officer observed a vehicle exit the park after hours. The park is properly posted for “no trespassing after dark,” and so police initiated a traffic stop. The male driver was known to officers due to prior incidents and was asked for consent to search his vehicle, which he denied. Ultimately officers contacted a K-9 unit, at which point the driver allegedly admitted there were items of drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle; a subsequent search of his vehicle confirmed this. Charges will be filed against the driver.
  • Police received a report about an incident of burglary/theft that occurred at a camp Sept. 7 on Little Medix Road. According to police, the victim found his camp door had been kicked in. Once inside, he discovered that two flat screen televisions, two tool boxes and multiple clothing items had allegedly been stolen. The suspects are unknown at this time.
