Man Arrested After Fleeing From Minor Accident…….Results In Major Charges

​​

At approximately 12:50 this afternoon Officers responded to the area of Ridge Avenue and E. Countyline Rd after receiving reports of a pedestrian that was struck by a motor vehicle. 
Upon arrival, Sgt. Eric Miick and Officers Mike Ruiz and Steven Meyer learned that a male, later identified as 23 year old Terick DeBose of Toms River, had struck a parked vehicle in the parking lot of Pinter Elementary School. DeBose who was operating a blue Toyota Camry attempted to flee the scene when a 19 year old bystander tried to signal him to stop. 
DeBose, briefly stopped but then stepped on the accelerator and advanced directly towards the 19 year old man. The man lunged forward, so as not to be run over and was able to grab onto the hood of the car. As a result he sustained a minor injury to his knee. 
DeBose continued his flight and began traveling at an estimated 40+ miles per hour, west on E. Countyline Road with the victim still holding on. 
Approximately a quarter of a mile down the road the 19 year old asked DeBose to please pull over so he could get off the car. DeBose pulled over in front of Calvary Academy School, let the victim off and then continued west. 
Officer Stephen Nickens, who was responding as backup, observered the Camry as it neared Squankum Rd. Upon approaching the intersection, DeBose drove over a curb to avoid traffic that was backed up at the traffic light. 
He continued north on Squankum Road and was ultimately stopped and arrested by Officer Nickens. It was determined at the stop that DeBose had an several outstanding warrants for his arrest as well as a suspended drivers license. 
Further assistance from Det. Oscar Valmon resulted in charges of Aggragated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Leaving the Scene of an Accident with Injury with a Suspended License as well as a host of motor vehicle summonses.

LETTER FROM PBA PRESIDENT MARK ZREBIEC:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
     As you know in September and October 2016 the Lakewood PBA and SOA sold shirts (in conjunction with the Lakewood FMBA Professinal Firefighters and EMS Personnel) and pink LPD hats to raise money for the Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus Foundation.
     Last week I, along with SOA Vice-President Greg Staffordsmith and PBA Financial Secretary Sean Doyle, delivered the donation to MMCSC. A total was raised of $7800 with the PBA and SOA responsible for $4500 of the amount.
     A wonderful job by the men and women of the LPD that should benefit a number of affected people in the future. Thanks to all for helping.
Mark Zrebiec

Lakewood PBA #71 President

 

 

 

 

Road Construction and Detour Plan

rt-88-detour-map

On or about January 24, 2017 the New Jersey American Water Company will be installing a new water main on Route #88 to replace the current one to provide better service to the community. The project will start at the railroad tracks just east of Monmouth / Railroad Avenues and continue east towards the Ocean County Park. The project is expected to be completed in May of 2017 and will be installed during the evening hours of 8:00 pm to 6:00am to lessen the impact and inconvenience to the community. During the project only the immediate area of construction will close Rt. #88, but a detour has been set up for all wide loads, tractor trailers, transit buses and non local traffic to avoid the area via a bypass of South Clifton Avenue to Cedarbridge Avenue to New Hampshire Avenue back onto Route #88. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Traffic Safety Officer Alex Guzman @ at 732.363.0200 ext. 5321
