Glen Rock Police Blotter
9:16 PM – A Glen Rock man reported that in 2014 he entered into a contract for the purchase and restoration of an antique vehicle, making payments totaling $15,000. Subsequently the vehicle was moved from Park Ridge to an autobody shop in the Bronx owned by a third party. The induvial with whom the agreement was made later moved out of state. The autobody shop, who was not part of the initial agreement, took a lien on the vehicle for storage charges in 2017. A review by the Detective Bureau, in cooperation with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, determined that no transaction had occurred in Glen Rock, further that the nature of the matter is civil, not criminal. The complainant has been advised of his options and the matter has been closed as the GRPD does not have jurisdiction to proceed further.
