Weekly Glen Rock Police Blotter
3:12 PM – A Concord Avenue resident reported a series of items being damaged and stolen from their front yard. This has been occurring during the overnight period on an ongoing basis. The detective bureau is reviewing the matter.
10:25 PM – Patrols were dispatched to a 9-1-1 report of a fight in progress in the parking lot of a Harristown Road office building. Upon arrival, they separated three individuals, two from North Bergen and one from Fair Lawn. There were no injuries and the matter appeared to be a heated dispute. It was determined that none of the individuals were associated with any business at the building. All of them were advised of their rights to sign a complaint and were directed to leave the area which is private property.
10:34 AM – A Glen Rock grandmother received a call from a male claiming to be her grandson. The caller alleged he was in trouble and put her on the phone with a man claiming to be a lawyer seeking a $ 1,800 retainer. The woman went to the bank to withdraw money, but called her grandson before sending the requested gift cards. Her grandson informed her he was not in any trouble and knew nothing about the call.
If you ever get a call from or about a grandchild or any other relative in danger or trouble, and the immediate request is for cash, you need to pause, calm yourself, say you must consult another family member first, and hang up. Then check. If the emergency is by any chance real, you can still respond appropriately. If it’s not—and the odds point to that—congratulate yourself.
