Police: Ship Bottom Beach Patrol vehicle hits two Pennsylvania girls; driver charged with reckless driving

A Ship Bottom Beach Patrol vehicle struck a pair of teenage girls from Pennsylvania who were laying on the New Jersey beach a little after 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, local authorities said on Facebook. The incident occurred at the 26th Street Beach of the Ocean County town, which is located on Long Beach Island.

The girls’ names were not provided, but Ship Bottom police said that the victims were a 14-year-old female from Fleetwood, Berks County and a 15-year-old female from Leestwood. The two girls were taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune City, Monmouth County where they were treated and eventually released from the hospital.

The driver of the vehicle, 22-year-old John Purdon of Barnegat, Ocean County, was charged with reckless driving pending a court date.

The town also issued a statement on its Facebook page on Saturday to send well wishes to the two female victims and their families.

Ship Bottom’s beaches are only open to residents and property owners of the town for walking or jogging purposes due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many other Jersey Shore towns have taken similar measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 across the region.

Residents and property owners of the town were given “disaster reentry” placards that must be shown to local authorities when asked, according to the Associated Press. It’s unclear if the girls had a placard with them while on the beach.

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — Police busted a drug distribution syndicate following the arrests of five individuals in several locations throughout the city centre last week, including seizing narcotics worth almost RM885,000.

City police chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said the first arrest took place near a condominium along Jalan Ipoh around 9.40am on April 22.

“A team from the Sentul district’s Narcotics Crime Investigation Department first detained a 19-year-old youth before a search on his vehicle found 3kg of ecstasy pills worth RM240,000. The police subsequently seized the suspect’s vehicle worth RM40,000.

“Initial investigations revealed that the suspect was actively involved in drug distribution activities around Klang Valley since October 2019,” he said in a statement here.

According to Mazlan, transactions for the drug supplies were made through online banking and instant messaging application, WeChat.

Based on the information obtained from the first suspect, a police raid was conducted at a home in Batu Caves, Selangor around 10.20am on April 22.

At the premises, police discovered a cache of drugs kept in the living room worth around RM645,526.

Among the drugs seized were 2.6kg of ketamine, 221 ecstasy pills, 45.66g of syabu, 1.12g of ketamine and 2116 Eramin 5 pills. Also seized were RM11,344 in cash.

Mazlan said a third police raid was subsequently conducted at a home in Taman Selayang Baru, Selangor at 6.30pm the same day, leading to the arrest of three men and a woman aged between 26 and 31.

During the raid, police also seized RM26,261 in cash and two vehicles — a Mercedes E200 worth RM70,000 and a Honda HRV worth RM65,000.

“Based on investigations, one of the suspects admitted to their involvement in drug distribution and had obtained supplies from another unidentified man.

“The police are now intensifying their efforts to track down the remaining individuals suspected of being involved in such activities,” he added.

All suspects have been remanded until April 29 and the police are investigating the case under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 for drug trafficking which carries a death sentence upon conviction.

Man breaks into ex-girlfriend’s Lapeer County house to take vehicle, later crashes it during police chase

ELBA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Authorities said a man broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house in Lapeer County early Monday, took the couple’s shared vehicle and later crashed it.

The 37-year-old man is accused of breaking into the home on Georgia Drive in Elba Township at 3:34 a.m. He used to live there but moved out last fall when the pair broke up.

He attempted to take his 37-year-old ex-girlfriend’s purse, which had the keys to a 2015 White Dodge Journey inside. Officials said there was a physical altercation that started in the house and continued into the driveway.

The man is accused of hitting the garage then dragging the woman alongside the vehicle for a distance before leaving. She suffered minor injuries and did not want medical treatment.

Authorities said the vehicle was registered to both the man and woman so it was not listed as stolen, but the man had a warrant for his arrest.

The woman told authorities that the man broke into the house alone but when he left the scene, there was a 36-year-old woman from Mount Morris with him.

When deputies learned the man may be in Flint, they informed Flint police. Authorities said there was a pursuit that ended with a crash.

Officials said the man ran a red light at W. Stewart Avenue and Cilo Road during the chase and crashed into a Jeep. The driver of the Jeep is in critical condition.

The man and his passenger, who officials say is a parole absconder, both were treated for minor injuries. They are now in custody.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Jason Cate at 810-237-6808.

Police: Pregnant woman carjacks news vehicle with Atlanta reporter inside

Atlanta police are investigating after a news vehicle was carjacked with a reporter inside of it Tuesday morning. 

A news crew with CBS 46 was covering a story near Atlantic Station when a woman crashed her personal vehicle into a security gate along 17th Street. Investigators said the woman then approached the news vehicle before hopping into the driver seat and taking off. 

Investigators said a reporter, identified as Iyani Hughes, was in the back seat of the running news van, possibly editing video, when the suspect jumped in and carjacked it.

Police said the reporter started screaming, telling the female carjacker to stop, and when she kept driving Hughes buckled her seatbelt.

At that point, police, who were on the scene after responding to the initial wreck, then chased after the stolen van. The suspect ended up crashing on Peachtree Circle in Ansley Park. Police said she tried to jump out and run but officers immediately took her into custody.

Hughes, who police said is pregnant, wasn’t hurt. 

Police said the suspect is also pregnant. She suffered a broken arm.
