Morning Stop Results in Drug Arrests; Unlocked Car Stolen on Putnam Road

Livingston police arrested five individuals during a pre-dawn stop in Livingston. In addition to charging the suspects with drug possession, officers are working to determine if they are behind car burglaries in the township over the past several weeks.

On Wednesday, July 17, at 3:49 a.m., Officer Adam McDavitt was on patrol as part of the West Essex Auto Theft Force. While on South Orange Avenue, the officer conducted a stop of a 1998 Lexus for equipment violations. The car was occupied by three adult and two juvenile males.

Upon approaching the car, the officer could smell the odor of marijuana. A search of the car resulted in the discovery of a quart-sized plastic bag containing marijuana, along with packaging materials and paraphernalia.

Home HVAC Catches Fire; House Saved by Fire Alarm

During a week with many calls, most of which were false alarms and unfounded reports, the Livingston Fire Department had to contend with an attic fire and a lightning strike.

On Sunday, July 21, Livingston Police received a residential fire alarm from 24 Vanderbilt Drive and dispatched the Fire Department, which responded with a chief officer and an engine company. The homeowners were not home. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fire burning inside the home’s HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system on the second floor. The fire was quickly extinguished, limiting smoke and fire damage to a second floor room as well as the HVAC unit.

LPI’s small, but stalwart group of volunteers continues to pick up donations at the offices of Livingston’s publication of record, the West Essex Tribune, and make deliveries to our distribution partners in Newark and East Orange. The Tribune remains LPI’s donation drop off center, thankfully.
Volunteer Patrick Corcoran is giving of both his time and personal vehicle to fetch Livingston’s generous donations at the Tribune offices to bring to my garage, which is set up to receive Philanthropies contributions from our altruistic neighbors.

Chief Explains Falcon Road “Sharrows”

New signage for bicyclists and motorists on Falcon Road has left some in town confused at how to properly navigate the roadway. Lines direct bicyclists to travel in the center of the roadway as opposed to the side.

Livingston Police Chief Gary Marshuetz explained that these shared-lane arrows, or “sharrows,” are indicators for bicyclists and motorists to share the roadway. Sharrows are used on roads that are too narrow to fit a bike lane. Falcon Road, particularly with the street parking also on the roadway, fits this bill.

In order for the township to fulfill its Master Plan and the complete streets initiative – allowing motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to easily navigate throughout town – these narrow streets must have instructions for how bicyclists and motorists should traverse the roadway.
