RARITAN TWP., NJ – Township police released today details on a number of unrelated arrests.
- Dominique Y. Hernando, 31, of the township, was arrested around 8:31 a.m. Aug. 19 on outstanding warrants and now faces new charges.
Police said they were dispatched to Haddenford Drive on the report of a woman who’d been sitting in a car and screaming for around 30 minutes. Police said they found Hernando in the passenger seat of a car not belonging to her and that she became irate when police told her the car’s owner “had no idea why she would be in the car.” Hernando had her pocketbook and luggage in the car, police said.
Police said Hernando appeared to be under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, so Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad responded and took Hernando to Hunterdon Medical Center for evaluation.
Patrolman Robert Landolina charged Hernando with burglary of a motor vehicle, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal mischief. Because she had two warrants for her arrest, bail was set on the burglary and possession charges at $40,000. Hernando was released from HMC and then lodged in the Somerset County Jail.
- Police were called to the Emergency Department of Hunterdon Medical Center around 4 p.m. Thursday when staff suspected a patient checked in for treatment using another’s name who had Medicaid coverage. When HMC released Jackalyn A. Bolcar, 27, of Blairstown, she was taken to police headquarters and charged by Det. Geoffrey Benz with identity theft/wrongful impersonation and insurance fraud. She was released.
- Patrolman Robert Landolina was dispatched to the Sherwood Court area around 10:29 p.m. Thursday because of recent vehicle burglaries in the area and the report of a suspicious parked vehicle, and it led to the arrest of five people.
Malik D. McGee, 19, and Jonathan M. Levering, 20, both of the township; Shannon N. Carney, 20 of Port Murray; Altariq D. Muldrow, 23, of Flemington; and Christopher D. Cuevas, 19, of High Bridge, were each charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia (blunt wrappers and plastic baggies). Carney was also issued a motor vehicle summons for possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. All were released.
- Glenn E. Yeisley, 51, of Plymouth, Pa., was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after a motor vehicle stop on Reaville Avenue around 7:31 a.m. Sunday. Yeisley was initially stopped for an improper turn and failure to wear his seatbelt, police said. He was issued additional motor vehicle summonses for improper turn, failure to wear seatbelt and reckless driving. The vehicle was towed and Yeisley was released to a family member.
