Po­lice blot­ter

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - WEATHER -

The in­for­ma­tion be­low was pro­vided by po­lice un­less oth­er­wise noted.


You Want The Pipe: Ty­rone El­liot, 51, was charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault and weapons of­fenses af­ter cops re­sponded to Wood Street for a re­ported beat­down. El­liot is ac­cused of club­bing a 24-year-old fam­ily mem­ber with a metal pipe, frac­tur­ing the rel­a­tive’s arm. The fam­ily mem­ber was treated at Cap­i­tal Health Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Cops re­cov­ered the pipe.

Not The Dallas Cow­boys Owner: Jerry Jones, 22, was nabbed by vi­o­lent crime de­tec­tives on pa­trol in the area of Union and Steam­boat streets. Jones drew the de­tec­tives’ at­ten­tion as he ped­dled away from them on a bike down Power Street out of sight. When de­tec­tives rolled down Power Street, they spot­ted Jones near the back of a crashed car with the trunk open. He al­legedly be­came star­tled when he saw the boys in blue, shut the trunk and rode off to­ward Lam­ber­ton Street. Cops saw him jump off his bike and walk away hold­ing his pants pocket. He was stopped as de­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gated claim­ing Jones made un­spec­i­fied com­ments that made cops think there were drugs in the crashed car. Po­lice wouldn’t re­veal ex­actly what Jones said to the de­tec­tives who went back to the crashed ve­hi­cle and re­cov­ered 200 bags of heroin and a dig­i­tal scale. Jones ap­par­ently had the car keys and $184 in cash that was seized when cops searched him.


Plea: Deon Owensby, 42, of Tren­ton, ad­mit­ted to pos­sess­ing a fed­eral agency iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card with­out au­tho­riza­tion and us­ing it dur­ing mul­ti­ple traf­fic stops. Owensby, a for­mer IRS at­tor­ney, pleaded guilty Tues­day to know­ingly pos­sess­ing an of­fi­cial iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card of a fed­eral agency with­out au­tho­riza­tion. Prose­cu­tors

say Owensby ob­tained an of­fi­cial IRS ID card dur­ing his em­ploy­ment as an at­tor­ney with the agency. But the card was sup­posed to be re­turned to the IRS upon the end of his em­ploy­ment in April 2015. In­stead, of­fi­cials say, Owensby con­tin­ued to pos­sess the ID and dis­played it dur­ing mul­ti­ple law en­force­ment stops of his ve­hi­cle in Es­sex and Mid­dle­sex Coun­ties be­tween Au­gust 2015 and April 2017. The charge against Owensby is pun­ish­able by a max­i­mum po­ten­tial penalty of six months in prison and a $5,000 fine. Owensby’s sen­tenc­ing is sched­uled for Aug. 28.

Lower Southamp­ton, Pa.

Shoplift­ing Scam: Emily Lord, 38, of Ben­salem, and Christo­pher Giove, 33, of Trevose, were charged in con­nec­tion with a re­tail theft scam that hap­pened last month at a Gi­ant food store in the 1000 block of Bustle­ton Pike, Feast­er­ville. Po­lice say Lord and Giove left the store with items they did not pur­chase, then re­turned to the store and at­tempted to re­turn the stolen items for money. Store per­son­nel de­nied the re­turn trans­ac­tion, but Lord and Giove re-bagged the items and fled the store. They are both charged with re­tail theft.

Newtown, Pa.

Bur­glary: Michael David Veit, 35, of White­hall, was ar­rested af­ter he bur­glar­ized a home on Lower Sil­ver Lake Road. Af­ter cops re­ceived a tip about a bur­glary in progress, they found Veit on the side of the prop­erty car­ry­ing a flash­light. Dur­ing a search, po­lice found Veit had sev­eral items that be­longed to the home­own­ers in his pos­ses­sion. Veit even­tu­ally ad­mit­ted to bur­glar­iz­ing a ve­hi­cle and the prop­erty, but claimed he thought he was at the re­cov­ery shel­ter and didn’t be­lieve he had done any­thing wrong. Veit was re­manded to Bucks County Prison on $80,000 bail.
