July 6, 2021

We are happy to announce that the subject we have been looking for all day was just taken into custody by Hazlet Police. Numerous officers from multiple jurisdictions including Keyport, Union Beach,  Middletown, Matawan, Monmouth County Sheriffs Office and the New Jersey State Police spent the last 7 hours conducting an exhaustive search in the area between Shorelands Cemetery and Airport Plaza. Officers on foot were supplemented by (3) Police K9s, drones, and helicopter. 
At 7:21 pm we received a call that a subject matching that description was seen behind St. John’s Church. As officers flooded the scene Deputy Chief Robert Mulligan spotted him and took him into custody with the assistance of Sgt. Robert Dickens and Ptl. Megan Quinn.
We are thankful for all of the support we received from our Bayshore, County and State partners today. We are also thankful that we were able to take this potentially dangerous person off the street.
