On Saturday night, Officer Michael Hernandez of the Clark Police Department arrested Travis Fongh, 28, of Roselle, after a traffic stop, Matos said. Fongh was found in possession of a stolen 45-caliber handgun and drugs. He was arrested for possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), possession of CDS paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a handgun and receiving stolen property, according to the department’s weekly police blotter.

“Both Walker and Fongh were remanded to the Union County jail,” Matos said.

Multiple witnesses reported a traffic stop on Central Avenue near Burger King on Sunday night. Matos said that incident began with a reported shoplifting from ShopRite.
