CHATHAM TOWNSHIP, NJ - On Oct. 2, 2017 a theft investigation conducted by Detective David Gallo concluded with the arrest of Myrna Grant, 47 of Newark.
In February, a Chatham Township resident reported to police that he had noticed a number of fraudulent withdrawals from his checking account, totaling more than $5000.00.
While conducting his investigation, Detective Gallo identified Grant as a suspect after it was found that utility bills in her name had been paid for from this account. She was arrested without incident at her place of employment in Nutley and transported to police headquarters.
Grant was processed and later released on a complaint summons charging her with Theft (3rd Degree).
