3 arrested after probe of report to kill officer
Police in New Jersey said an investigation of a reported plot to kill a police officer resulted in the arrests of three people on firearm and drug charges.
Asbury Park police said the probe began after a report that a local gang member had told several people “he was plotting to kill an Asbury Park police officer.”
Authorities searched an Asbury Park home early Friday and arrested two men and a woman on charges of possessing a defaced firearm, unlawfully possessing weapons, and drug possession.
The woman also was arrested on two child endangerment counts.
Police reported finding cash, weapons, drugs and an $800 bicycle bought “from a drug addict on the streets for $5.”
No charges have been filed in connection with the reported plot.
Disneyland shuts towers after 2 became ill: Disneyland has shut down two cooling towers after people who visited the Southern California theme park came down with Legionnaires’ disease. A dozen cases of the bacterial lung infection were discovered about three weeks ago, the Orange County Health Care Agency announced Friday. The patients, ranging in age from 52 to 94, lived or had spent time in Anaheim, and nine had visited Disneyland in September. One patient, who hadn’t visited the park, has died, the agency said. There haven’t been any new cases linked to Anaheim since September, the agency said.
