SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (MIDDLESEX)–South Brunswick Police Chief Raymond J. Hayducka announced the arrest of a Monmouth Junction man in connection to threats against a Florida sheriff. At 1:05 PM Monday members of the South Brunswick Police Department and Middlesex County Prosecutors Office executed a search warrant at a Tanglewood Court home. Police seized electronic devices and took Richard Golden age 38 into custody. Golden is wanted by Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida for threatening Volusia Sheriff Mike J. Chitwood.
Golden was lodged at the Middlesex County Correction Center on a fugitive from Justice Warrant. He will be held pending extradition to Florida.
Chief Hayducka credited the cooperation between all the law enforcement agencies involved in tracking down the threats to Sheriff Chitwood. “The anonymous nature of the internet may make people feel they can say anything, but if you make threats or put people in fear we will use all our resources to track you down. Yesterday showed that being 974 miles away from the Volusia Sheriff’s Office was no distance too great for the teamwork of law enforcement,” said Chief Hayducka.
