Another daytime robbery in Lincroft!!! Beware! — White Oak Ridge Road

Evidently there was yet another daytime burglary in the Lincroft/Oak Hill section of Middletown yesterday. I was forwarded the email below from someone who received it earlier today.

Unless an arrest is made in this case, you wont read about this burglary in any news report or Police Blotter as it is the policy of the Middletown Police department not to announce any information unless the perpetrators of the crime are first apprehended.

Let this be a warning to all residents that even though, when you leave your house witht he doors locked, do not leave money or possible other valuables laying around in plain sight (not that this was the case in this instance). It only take a few minutes for someone to ransack and rummage through a home, you don’t want to make it any easier for the theft than you have to.

Remain vigilant and keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles or individuals in your neighborhood and don’t hessitate to call the police, friends or neighbors if you have questions or concerns about anything that looks out of place in the area.

Subject: Another Robbery

Hello Friends – I am sorry you have to keep receiving these emails, but I wanted to let you know OUR house was robbed today. They had a very small window of opportunity, from about 12:30 until 1:15. When I pulled up our driveway I noticed our front door was wide open. So the first thing that went thru my head was “those darn cleaning ladies!” I have been using them for years, they come once a month, and I was home when they arrived today at 10:30. They also let themselves out around 12:30 thru the garage and close it by pressing a button (no codes or anything).

So when I saw the front door I immediately thought our indoor cats may have gotten out so I ran thru the front door and was calling for them – – went upstairs and that’s when i noticed all the contents of my “unmentionables ” drawers were dumped on the floor. I have another set of drawers in my closet but that appears to have not been touched. I immediately called the police and they told me to get out asap .

THANKFULLY, due to all of the other incidents we have been hearing about (The Totilos, Hubbard Ave., ) we have been taking precautions and most of our valuables are in a safe, and I only keep about $40 in cash upstairs – which they found. They took ALL of my costume jewelry and unfortuately a few sentimental diamond pieces that I frequently wear, I just wasnt wearing them today, unfortunately. Other than that, it looks like they didn’t even make it into the girls’ bedrooms (computers/cameras/ipods all in full view) and nothing else was touched in the house. They gained entry by kicking in our door that is in the back of the garage – it was bolted/locked but the whole thing came off the wall. The detective was able to lift a big footprint off of it. From there the robber(s) let himself in thru our mudroom door which is always unlocked.

I am telling you all these details because hopefully you can make some adjustments in your lifestyles which can prevent anything like this from happening to you. I actually had the name of our alarm co. on my “to do ” list today because one of our zones has been a little funky. THe police also mentioned that they think these guys are related to the Totilo incident and have “quite a few leads”. Let’s hope they get them soon, and I am thanking God we are all safe.

Gallagher Update III

The following update on the Art Gallagher saga was left as a comment by Heraciltus on “Art Gallagher Turned a Dream Into A Nightmare For Betsy Penrose; Sweet deal on vending truck turned out to be a lemon” post earlier today.

According to Heraciltus, the MoreMonmouthMusings blogger had his bail hearing this morning in front of Judge Scully, where Gallagher and his lawyer were looking to have his $250,000 bail reduced with a 10% option applied.
According to the post Gallagher’s lawyer Michael Laffey only slightly succeeded in his plea to have Gallagher’s bail reduced. Heraciltus, who was present in the courtroom this morning, states that Judge Scully did reduce Art’s bail from $250,000 to $150,000. Unfortunately for Art however, Judge Scully would not consider allowing a 10% option and it looks as if Art will be staying behind bars for the foreseeable future.
Below is what Heraciltus wrote, i’ll be interested in reading what the Asbury Park Press has to say about this later:

Mike, Art Gallagher had a bail reduction hearing today before Judge Scully. I was at the hearing. This is what I saw and reported on Art’s blog …

Judge Scully lowered Art Gallagher’s bail to $150,000 without a 10% option. Art looked like someone punched him in the stomach when the judge issued his ruling. Art’s wife wept as the judge announced the lower bail. From the look on Art’ face, I don’t think Art or his family will be posting the new, lower bail.

The hearing was interesting to watch. Art was dressed in a green jump suit over a white thermal shirt. He was handcuffed and chained to to a fugitive from New York, some guy named Prisco. Art was very scared of the guy he was chained to. Art was required to stand in the jury box during the 10 minute proceeding.

Art’s lawyer, Michael Laffey, was out of his league. Despite the fact that the judge lowered the bail somewhat, Laffey was unable to answer some of the judge’s questions. The judge shook his head and seemed to laugh a little when Laffey suggested that repossessions often take place in the middle of the night and without going through the proper proceedures first. Laffey very much looked like the amatuer that he is. At one pointed Laffey started talking about a newspaper article that appeared in some Delaware newspaper while the judge rolled his eyes. I actually felt sorry for Michael Laffey. Laffey was literally trembling before and during the hearing. When the hearing was over, Laffey rushed out of the courtroom and stood in the hall. He did this without first consoling or even speaking with Art’s wife or supporters. Laffey looked liked he was going to throw up as he collected himself in that hallway. Art blew a kiss to his wife before being led out of the courtroom in chains. He looked like he was crying as they led him away.

I counted 5 people that looked like they were in the courtroom to support Art Gallagher. Art’s wife, Lori, sat next to an older man that I presume was Art’s father. Art’s wife also sat next to an older guy in a cheap suit. This guy was beyond creepy. He kept massaging Lori Gallagher’s neck and back. It was quite clear that Mrs. Gallagher was very uncomfortable with this guy touching her. There were a couple of older women that sat in the second row — an obese woman that read the paper the whole time and a skinny older lady who looked confused.

The prosecutor was a very professional black lady. She kicked Michael Laffey’s ass in that courtroom. The prosecutor pointed out that Art knew for about 30 days that he would be charged in Delaware. Art was invited by the cops in Delaware to turn himself in. Art refused to do so, forcing the Delaware cops to obtain the fugitive warrant. That fact that Art didn’t turn himself in when he had the chance to do so weighed heavily on the judge’s mind. The judge also pointed out that if Art were charged with these crimes in New Jersey, they would be Second Degree crimes. The judge pointed out that if convicted, Art Gallagher is facing many years in prison

Somewhere around 8:30 pm last night Art Gallagher’s website was back online and issued a statement pertaining to his extradition hearing and his request to have his bail reduced.

The Asbury Park Press has also posted about Art’s day in court yesterday. You can read all about it if you are interested……Here

MoreMonmouthMusings Blog Taken Down

It would appear that sometime this morning that Art Gallagher’s blog MoreMonmouthMusings.net has been taken down and is, at this time not operational.

The last posting to the blog made by a mysterious administrator was at 11:16 last night and was an awkward attempt to discuss a few local issues in 12th LD as reported by Eatontown Patch.
The post also attacks local republican Jim Sage, who has made it his mission in life to see that State Senator Jennifer Beck who is now seeking reelection in the newly created 11th LD, does not return to Trenton. Sage has a facebook page titled Dump State Senator Jennifer Beck that is a thorn in the side to Beck and disdained by many Republicans in Monmouth County.
No word on why the blog was shut down or when, if ever, it will return.
