NARRATIVE:

On February 14, 2018 at approximately 4:48pm Sgt Brian Egan was on routine patrol in the Borough of Interlaken. Sgt Egan observed a vehicle commit a motor vehicle violation on Grassmere Ave and subsequently conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of Grassmere Ave and Westra Street. While speaking with the driver in an attempt to identify him, the accused vehicle fled the stop and a brief vehicle pursuit resulted. The accused vehicle came to a stop on Bendermere Ave in the area of Westra Steet after striking a curb and becoming disabled. Two of the occupants fled on foot and one was apprehended a short time later.

Following a subsequent police investigation, the driver of the vehicle remains unidentified and wanted for multiple offenses. The remaining three occupants were all charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and Roberts was further charged with obstruction. In accordance with bail reform guidelines all three were released on criminal summonses pending a court date.

We request the public view the attached photos and anyone who can identify the accused driver is asked to contact the Deal Police Department. We would also like to thank the Ocean Township, Allenhurst and Howell Police Departments for their assistance.
