Agencies Mum On Weapons Seizure In North Brunswick Thursday Night


NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – Three law enforcement agencies are providing little new information regarding “an undisclosed number of weapons” seized from a Livingston Avenue residence last Thursday night.

According to a press release late last Friday afternoon from Jim O’Neill of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Director Kenneth McCormick of the North Brunswick Police Department announced that an undisclosed number of weapons have been seized from a residence on Livingston Avenue in the township.

According to the release, the North Brunswick Police Department, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and the FBI took the weapons during an investigation.

The investigation is active and is continuing, and no other information is available at this time, according to the release.

As of Monday afternoon, not one of the three law enforcement agencies involved would either comment, or provide any further details regarding the incident despite the state’s Open Public Records Act law that requires basic information about such events to be made public within 24 hours.

Such basic information required by the law includes, time, date, address of incident, names, ages, towns and charges for anyone arrested as well bail and incarceration information.

The agency must also provide a brief narrative as to what happened during the incident.

North Brunswick Police Director Kenneth McCormick refused to comment through his secretary Monday and referred all questions to O’Neill.

Its Facebook page listed the incident using only Friday’s brief press release to answer questions for residents who had asked in the comments section of the page.

O’Neill did not respond to a request for information by email, but also did not respond to deny the request for information.

The only new light shed on the case, however small, was from an FBI spokesman in the Newark regional office that said North Brunswick called them in to assist in the case, referring further questions back to North Brunswick.

TAP into South Brunswick and Cranbury will continue to follow this story and provide details and information when it finally becomes available.
