5:01 PM – A Glen Rock resident reported that unknown individuals at their place of employment had researched their personal information online and shared it with others. There was no evidence to support that the information was anything beyond public information, which is easily accessible to anyone online, nor that there was an attempt to breach their personal data. The complainant has reported the conduct to their employer.
1:59 PM – Patrols were dispatched to the Rock Road Central Business District in response to a report of a dispute between a merchant and a delivery truck driver. The investigation found that the dispute began when the driver attempted to make a delivery through the front of the store, rather than the rear which is store policy. Both became angry and began to argue. Responding officers did not witness any unlawful acts. Both individuals were advised of their right to sign complaints with the Glen Rock Municipal Court.
3:42 PM – An elderly Glen Rock resident came to police headquarters concerning a notice of collection received concerning a debt in the amount of $ 1,807.88. The resident stated they were not aware of any such outstanding debt and were concerned as to whether the notice was legitimate. The matter was referred to the Detective Bureau for review.
11:52 PM – During the course of investigating a rollover motor vehicle accident on Rock Road, near Midwood, P.O. Sarah Orsita arrested a 40-year-old Ridgewood man for driving while intoxicated. Upon arrival, officers found the driver trapped inside a 2022 Ford Expedition, which was on its side. P.O. T.J. Graziani was able to break out the vehicle’s sunroof and extricate him.
An investigation determined that the vehicle was traveling east on Rock Road when it collided with two vehicles legally parked at the side of the road, then collided with the curb which caused it to roll over onto the driver’s side. The driver stated to officers that he did not know what happened. While attending to the driver, officers detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverages, slurred speech, and other signs consistent with intoxication.
The driver was subsequently transported by ambulance to the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood for evaluation. While at the hospital, blood samples for toxicology testing were drawn. He was left in the custody of hospital personnel and a sober family member. In addition to being charged with D.W.I., he was also issued a summons for careless driving.
All three vehicles, which were extensively damaged, were towed from the scene.
