Upon arrival, patrol units located four individuals, 3 adults and one juvenile, as well as a vehicle with a broken front window in the area where the individuals were seen on camera throwing items. All four suspects were placed under arrest at the scene. 

Charged were Robert Santiago, 19, and Nyle Clark, 19, both of Manalapan, NJ, and Christopher Lehr, 18, of Monroe, NJ.  Santiago was charged with Criminal Mischief, Defiant Trespassing and issued Township Ordinances for trespassing and open burning.  Clark and Lehr were both charged with Defiant Trespassing and issued Township Ordinances for trespassing.  The juvenile will be charged with Defiant Trespassing at a later date.  (Defiant trespassing – New Jersey Statutes (NJSA) 2C:18-3b explains that a person commits a petty disorderly offense if he or she had been notified against trespassing but still chose enter or remain in a place.) All 4 individuals were released pending a court date.
