Teen Arrested in Connection With Multiple Vehicle Thefts

One suspect has been arrested after an attempt to steal two vehicles out of a township driveway, Livingston Police said.

At 2:42 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11, a Ross Road resident called 9-1-1 to report that two people were in his driveway and trying to steal two SUVs, a Mercedes and a GMC. A key for each car had been left in the GMC.

Livingston Police Sergeant John Maggiulli was the first to arrive and observed both vehicles idling in the street. The sergeant pulled in front of the Mercedes, blocking its path. The GMC then reversed, made a Kturn, and fled towards South Orange Avenue.

Camuso Holiday Display Will Open With COVID-19 Restrictions in Place

Camuso Holiday Display Will Open With COVID-19 Restrictions in Place

The COVID-19 Grinch will not steal this Christmas tradition. The Camuso Holiday Display, for years a beloved Livingston holiday tradition, will open this year, despite earlier doubt that the pandemic would put a lid on it.

“The decision to set up this year was not an easy one,” said “Chief Elf’ Tom Cooney. “There were clearly two sides to the issue. Many felt that, if ever the community needed something positive to boost spirits, this would be the time, and the Camuso Display fits the bill perfectly. Others suggested the risks to our volunteer group and visitors may warrant tak-ing a year off.”

Following a series of discussions, emails, and Zoom calls among the volunteer “Elves,” and consultations with town officials and medical experts, the Camuso Holiday Committee members decided to go ahead and set up the display.

Close the Schools

As daily COVID-19 cases continue to climb in Livingston, it is time to reassess how our children will complete the rest of school through the calendar year.

We fully understand the value of the in-person experience for students, and the burden it puts on working parents when their children stay home on weekdays. And we are glad that our students were able to spend some time physically in school these past few weeks and months. But New Jersey’s daily case counts are skyrocketing to levels higher than have ever been recorded. It is no longer safe for students and faculty to spend unnecessary time in classrooms.
