Glen Rock Police Blotter July 30th – August 5th, 2018



3:28 PM – Patrols were dispatched to the Glen Rock Municipal Pool to investigate a 9-1-1 call concerning an injured person. Upon arrival officers located 4 trespassers inside the pool grounds, one of whom was injured.  

Investigation determined that all four had entered the grounds of the closed pool by scaling a section of fence.  When attempting to leave the area the victim, a 20-year-old Glen Rock woman, sustained a laceration while attempting to climb of the fence.  She was transported by ambulance to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood for a serious, but non-life threatening, laceration to her leg.     

A search of the area by both Glen Rock and Ridgewood Police found no other persons in the vicinity.  

After determining that the nature of this incident did not fall under New Jersey’s Good Samaritan Law, which provides a certain level of immunity to those who aid an injured victim, each of the three adults were issued summonses for trespassing – a petty disorderly persons offense.  

The fourth individual, a juvenile, was released to the custody of his father on the scene.  The disposition of his case will be handled informally in accordance with New Jersey’s juvenile justice procedures.  


3:09 PM – A Glen Rock resident reported that an unknown person hacked into her AT&T I-Phone and obtained her banking information.  Unauthorized transactions in the amount of $3,750 had occurred over the last month.  In addition, using the victims account information, a Chase credit card had been opened and charges just over $10,000 were incurred at hotels in Colorado and through the purchase of airline tickets reaching the credit limit of the account. 

During this same period, the victim suspects that her medical records at Englewood Hospital were also hacked.  Reportedly that information had been used to defraud a third party in Colorado.  Glen Rock detectives, along with detectives from Englewood and Boulder, Colorado are currently reviewing this case.      


12:55 PM – Patrols were dispatched to a dispute involving an unwanted guest at a Broad Street home.  Investigation found that a family member from Brooklyn had stayed overnight and refused to leave claiming that someone in the house had stolen her LG Tablet.  Family members at the house allegedly had no knowledge of the tablet.  The woman was escorted from the home by police and all were advised their right to sign a complaint with the Glen Rock Municipal Court.  


During the mid-afternoon police, fire and DPW personnel responded to numerous conditions brought about by wind and heavy rains causing downed trees and flooded roadways.  This included a home on Austin Place which was struck by a tree causing structural damage.  No injuries were reported.  Fire-Fighters from Hawthorne also assisted at the Austin Place scene. Read the article here
