After weeks of reporting numerous drug charges, officers from the Manchester Police Department last week had fewer incidents to list on their blotter.
The big news to come out of the department last week was the arrest of alleged Crestwood Village burglar Jason M. Clancy, the 26-year-old man accused of stealing from several homes during a months-long string of burglaries in the Whiting senior communities.
Clancy has been in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River since Sept. 7, after police arrested him at the Mill Road home in Crestwood Village VI where he lives with his parents.
With more charges issued, bail for Clancy has risen to $75,000 with no 10 percent option, according to Capt. Lisa Parker. Having not made bail, Clancy remains in jail, according to the Ocean County Department of Corrections.
Also on the police blotter last week:
Monday, Sept. 3
Lakehurst resident Jerome P. Gilby, 28, was charged with possession of a weapon on Ridgeview Avenue by Patrolman Peter Manco. Parker said that Gilby was released with a court summons.
The above charges issued by police are accusations and are not an indication of guilt.
