Warren Township police received a phone call from a clerk at the Krauszer's convenience store on Stirling Road March 26 at 8:39 reporting a robbery. The employee told police a man, described as 50 years old, wearing dark clothing, a white basekball cap and light-colored tactical boots entered the store with a gun and demanded money from the cash register. The victim complied and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money from the register.

The robbery was captured on the store's video surveillance camera; still images were circulated to the media and other law enforcement agencies. 

Warren police subsequently received a call from Washington Township (Warren County) police telling them that Kline fit the description of the suspect they were looking for and that he was also a suspect in a similar incident in their town. 

On April 13 detectives from Warren Township, Long Hill Township (Morris County) and Washington Township conducted a surveillance on Kline in the Washington Township area, and confirmed that he matched the physical description displayed in the still photos obtained from video footage.. Additionally, he was also wearing clothing that he wore during the armed robbery, according to Robertson.

Warren Township detectives obtained a Superior Court search warrant for the suspect and residence; at 5:30 p.m., police detectives from Washington Township, Phillipsburg and Long Hill detained Kline in Phillipsburg. He was transported to the Washington Township Police Department for further investigation.

Detectives from several police agencies searched Kline's residence on Belvidere Avenue after he was detained.

During the investigation it was determined that Domanski was also involved in the armed robbery. At  8:30 p.m. Warren Township detectives went to Domanski’s residence to speak with him. He voluntarily accompanied police to their Washington Township headquarters.

At 9:35 p.m. the two suspects were arrested and charged.

To the editor,

Very often when I am out in the evening and heading home I will stop at the Flemington Wawa to get a cup of coffee.

There is no place else to go so they hang out at the Wawa, Dunkin Donuts, Panera Bread and Starbucks.

Reiner's Conservative Hypocrisy

To the editor,

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

Reiner Doesn't Speak for Township Committee

To the editor:

In light of the recent letter to the editor from Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner regarding his personal opinion on arming school officials, we felt the need to share our views on his statement.

Mr. Reiner took this position as an individual citizen and not in his capacity as a member of the Township Committee. We wholeheartedly disagree with the notions of arming ...

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

Initially the project was to find someone to ...
