Update - Hamilton Mall Disturbance

On June 2, 2018 officers from the Township of Hamilton Police Department responded to the Hamilton Mall for the report of a large fight that occurred. Several additional law enforcement agencies also responded to assist. As a result of the incident, seven (7) people were arrested on charges including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Prior to the fight at the mall, there was also a fight that occurred in the area of Primrose Court, which is believed to be related to the incident that occurred at the mall.

“The incident at the Hamilton Mall on June 2nd involving unsupervised teenagers was a situation that is unacceptable in our community. Law abiding store owners, store employees, families, and security personnel were all put at risk by teenagers engaged in criminal conduct. Each one of us, as parents and guardians, has a legal responsibility to know where our children are and what they are doing. Parents and guardians should not be dropping off their children unsupervised at retail shopping centers, nor should they allow children to take transit buses to shopping centers unsupervised", said Chief Stacy Tappeiner.

At this point in the investigation, two additional juveniles, a 15/M from Atlantic City and a 15/M from Mays Landing were charged with disorderly conduct, participating in a riot, and criminal mischief. Additional charges of participating in a riot and criminal mischief have also been filed against all juveniles and adults who were charged on Saturday night. The investigation is still ongoing, and any person who is identified as being involved in either the Primrose Court or the Hamilton Mall incidents will be charged accordingly. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Township of Hamilton Police Department at 609-625-2700 x 1.
