November 7

4:57 PM – Following a three-week investigation into a credit fraud report made by a Glen Rock resident, Det. Mike Trover arrested a 29-year-old Memphis Tennessee man for identity theft, fraudulent use of credit cards and forgery. The actor had obtained the resident’s credit card information and was using it to make purchases at multiple locations in Woodland Park, Hawthorne, Midland Park, Clifton and North Haledon.  With the cooperation of merchants at these locations, video surveillance, Port Authority bridge crossing records and automated license plate readers in use by various law enforcement agencies, Det. Trover was able to trace the actor’s vehicle to an address in Union.  The arrest was made shortly thereafter.

The actor was processed at Glen Rock Police Headquarters and ordered released on his own recognizance in accordance with New Jersey’s new bail reform system. He is scheduled to appear before the Superior Court Central Judicial Processing on November 17. 

November 9

11:15 AM – A Glen Rock couple who were jogging through town called 9-1-1 reporting that they were being followed by a suspicious male as they ran through numerous streets. The man, who was riding a bicycle, reportedly continued to follow them even after they made unexpected turns and appeared to be circling them as they waited for officers at a gas station.  

Officers were able to locate the subject, a 35-year-old Hawthorne man, who alleged that he was merely out riding his bicycle along public streets and his presence at the same locations as the couple was nothing more than a coincidence. The man was warned that further actions of this nature could be considered as an act of harassment. As there were no lawful grounds to further detain the man, he was released once it was determined that there were no active warrants for his arrest.    

The couple was encouraged to notify police if there is any repeated conduct of this nature.  

November 11

1:29 PM –  A Glen Rock resident reported that his Chase Bank savings account had been compromised.  He had discovered that over the last week, between October 31 and November 3, a total of three unauthorized transactions amounting to $15,000 had occurred. All of the transactions appear to have been online transfers which have been reported to the bank. The detective bureau is currently reviewing the matter.
