LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–Police say that on May 1, 2023, at approximately 1:00 p.m., the Lawrence Township Police Department responded to the 1700 block of Brunswick Pike (area of Haveson Ave.) for a report of several juveniles loitering in the area. One of the juveniles was reported to have displayed a handgun.
It was quickly determined that the group of juveniles had entered a nearby home and became somewhat uncooperative with police. Parents / guardians of the juveniles, including the homeowner, were contacted and arrived on-scene. As the result of a thorough on-scene investigation two handguns were recovered, including a large capacity magazine.
A 17-year-old juvenile male from Philadelphia, PA was arrested and charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon (2nd degree), 2 counts of an untraceable firearm (2nd degree) and possession of a large capacity magazine (4th degree). The arrested juvenile was lodged at Middlesex County Youth Detention Center pending a court hearing.
