On August 21, 2013 three East Orange juveniles were robbed on MacArthur Ave. at 4:01 pm by two Hispanic males. The victims reported that the 2 suspects passed them as they were walking on MacArthur Ave. and the suspects called something out to them, but they didn’t hear what was said. One of the suspects unzipped his jacket revealing what the victims believed was the handle of a black handgun and told the victims to “give me everything that you all got”. The victims complied, giving the suspects a white I-Phone, a black Metro PCS phone and an undetermined amount of cash. The suspects fled on foot towards Watsessing Ave.

The suspects were described by the victims as follows:

  1. Interesting. A few years ago my personal email account was hacked into, personal private emails were printed out and shared with a number of people and used as ammunition by the Board of Health against a dedicated, professional animal control officer at the Bloomfield Animal Shelter. At the time 9 of us were involved and weren’t sure (until recently) whose email was hacked. All of us went to the BPD to file police reports. Nothing happened. Coincidentally the then-shelter “manager” Romel Fernandez admitted to removing the township’s computer from the animal shelter without notifying anyone or permission, brought the computer to his home and replaced the original hard dive with a brand new one, effectively stealing all township documents and data regarding the animal shelter and the health department and I suspect any evidence of tampering with my personal email account. What happened to him after he admitted his crime? Nothing. The Boh couldn’t must enough votes to fire him, even though he acknowledged to them what he did, and he was allowed to resign.

    I maintain what happened to me is just as serious as what happened to the person whose mailbox was pilfered. Same thing, different medium. Where was BPD then?
