Police Blotter 2/6 – 2/12/2017


During the period between February 6th 2017 and February 12th 2017 members of the GRPD handled 180 calls for service, the highlights of which included:
11:45 AM – The manager of Boiling Springs Bank on Rock Road reported receiving information that person(s) unknown had tampered with their drive-up ATM. Video surveillance footage provided by bank officials was inconclusive. A technician examined the ATM and found all to be in order. The detective bureau will further review the matter with bank security.
3:51 PM – Patrols along with the Glen Rock Ambulance Corps responded to a report of an employee who had been attacked by a dog at the car wash on Broad Street. The victim, a 39-year-old Ridgewood man was bitten on the face by a dog which belonged to a customer. The victim was transported to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood. The matter has been referred to Animal Control and the Health Department will be conducting a follow-up investigation.

The Glen Rock Police Department, in cooperation with the DPW, Fire Department, Ambulance Corp and OEM commenced snow storm response operations beginning at 4:45AM. Additional public safety personnel were on standby from all of Glen Rock’s emergency services. Personnel responded to 3 medical emergencies, 2 utility related issues, a disabled vehicle and several other non-storm related calls. Thanks in large part to residents’ cooperation in staying indoors and keeping vehicles off borough roadways, public safety issues were kept to a minimum and the DPW was able to respond to the storm with a high level of efficiency. By all accounts the borough’s roads were cleared in record time. Glen Rock Borough and Glen Rock Public Schools officials and administrative staff participated with emergency services in pre-storm planning as well as in the development of contingency plans.

3:31 PM – A Gramercy Place resident reported unauthorized accounts were opened in his name following a legitimate purchase he made in New York City during the month of December. A total of $ 4,391.12 had been billed through two fraudulent wireless carrier accounts. This matter had been resolved a month ago, following which an additional attempt was made to open an online account with a furniture company in the victim’s name. The matter has been referred to the detective bureau for review.

11:16 AM – A Pinelynn Road resident reported fraudulent activity on her checking account. An unauthorized debit card had been issued and $ 1,000 was withdrawn from the account by person(s) unknown. The matter has been referred to the detective bureau for review.

NOTICE: All resident and commercial property owners are reminded that they are responsible to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks. Removal must be completed with 24 DAY LIGHT HOURS from the time the snow stops falling. Snow must also be removed from around neighbor fire hydrants.
