>As of today I will be adding a new feature to the MiddletownMike blog that I will call “Crime Scene, Middletown”.
After hearing many complain about the lack of information available to residents about crime being committed in the neighborhoods of Middletown, I went down to Police Headquarters and asked to be placed on the email list for press releases issued by the department.
Today, I received my first two press releases from Detective Lieutenant Stephen F. Dollinger, who oversees the Township’s Detective Bureau.
The first release announces the arrest of suspect Dustin Jeardon, Atlantic Street, Keyport for burglary and theft to a home located on Wilson Avenue in Port Monmouth.
The second press release details the motor vehicle stop of Rachel Goldberg, age 19, from Riverside Avenue in Red Bank. Goldberg attempted to flee the scene after being stopped. Her vehicle was pursued until it was stopped in the parking lot of the Visiting Nurse Association in Red Bank. Goldberg was placed under arrest for eluding. A search of the vehicle revealed a small purse which contained marijuana and a pipe used for smoking marijuana. After begin processed and released on her own recognizance.
You can read each of the press releases below:

Woman Arrested After Fleeing Scene
Middletown – On December 26, 2010 at approximately 1:10am Sgt. Sean Sweeney was on patrol on Highway 35 when he stopped a vehicle, driven by Rachel Goldberg, age 19, from Riverside Avenue in Red Bank, for motor vehicle violations.
After obtaining Goldberg’s driving credentials Sgt. Sweeney was in the process of issuing summonses when Goldberg began to flee the scene in her vehicle. Sgt. Sweeney pursued the vehicle until it was stopped in the parking lot of the Visiting Nurse Association in Red Bank. At this point Goldberg was placed under arrest for eluding.
A search of Goldberg by Officer Heather Pusylski of the Red Bank Police Department, who had arrived as back up, revealed a small purse which contained a green vegetation which Sgt. Sweeney recognized as marijuana and a glass pipe used for smoking marijuana.
Goldberg was transported to police headquarters where she was charged with eluding, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also issued motor vehicle summonses for a provisional license violation, careless driving, improper passing, failing to change address on license and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a vehicle.
