RARITAN, NJ - A Manville man was arrested for theft after it was found that his company didn't finish contracting work or return paint at a home in Raritan, according to Raritan Borough Police.

Scott Minegar, 48, of Manville, was charged Jan. 19 with theft following the investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division.

According to police, the charges are from an incident in September in which Minegar and his company, Atlantic Irrigation, were contracted to perform several projects at a Raritan residence. Police said Minegar failed to complete the contracted work, and never returned $600 worth of Benjamin Moore paint to the victim.

Police made several other arrests in the last week for shoplifting and more.

  • Howard Starkes, 53, of Clinton, was arrested Jan. 18 for shoplifting following an investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division. According to the report, on Dec. 11, Starkes stole a bottle of Johnny Walker Platinum Scotch, valued at $137.99, from Raritan Valley Liquors. Aiding the detectives in identifying Starkes were Hunterdon County Probation, Raritan Township, Plainfield, Scotch Plains, Watchung and Edison.
  • Peter Stewart, 39, of Raritan, was arrested Jan. 18 and charged with simple assault as a result of a domestic violence incident.
  • Oliver Santos, 38, of Raritan, was arrested Jan. 20 for criminal mischief and harassment as a result of a domestic violence incident. According to the report, police were sent to his home after the victim called 911 and said Santos had destroyed items in his apartment using a butcher knife.
