POLICE REPORT: Two Arrested For Possessing "Toxic" Chemicals

Others arrested on theft and burglary charges

Two women were arrested Monday night for possessing toxic chemicals, police said.

At 5:30 p.m. on Monday night, Toms River police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle at Walgreens, at Hooper and Church roads.

The two women were then arrested for "huffing."

Jennifer Colins of Cranbury and Elizabeth Derosa, 27, Cape May Court House were charged with possession of toxic chemicals, police said. They were released on summons.

Officers recovered four containers of Maxell Blast Away Mailto purpose duster from their vehicle.


Police are investigating criminal mischief affecting at least four mailboxes on Alfred Lane, police said.

At 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, a home security system showed three teenage males - two wearing grey hooded sweatshirts and one wearing a black one - damaging mailboxes.

Anyone with information can call 732-349-0150.


A 17-year-old male juvenile was charged Tuesday with burglarizing and stealing from a vehicle in Briar Knolls, and one in the Fairways community parking lot, police said.

Toms River Police responded to the Briar Knoll community off Route 166  Tuesday morning after a man was observed entering vehicles in the parking lot, police said.

Around 1 a.m., K-9 Officer Art Pennell located a juvenile suspect a short time later on Royal Oaks drive, near Bay Lea Road.

That was a bit deceiving. I thought it was going to be something serious, not a bunch of crack heads huffing stuff. Lol.

Agree. On another point post pictures of suspects arrested, instead of stating that the TR police department declined because it might influence a jury. Guess the Wyckoff Patch thinks differently: http://wyckoff.patch.com/articles/cops-arrest-4-oakland-men-in-connection-with-bizzare-tree-vandalism

If people are dumb enough to go around huff and that stuff I say let them. After they kill themselves that's less stupid that we the people will have to pay for later on.

Seriously about the headline. I guess lets say that's a good thing if that's all that happened New Years Eve. Whoo hoo! Also the patch is to fast to print wrong information experienced first hand. Bad headlines and sometimes not double checking the story before printed. Huff away girls I really don't care.

LOL! Just noticed its the Huffington post paper....Hahaha

Is that all ya got ? Give me a break. What a waste of a story

Your question g...leads me to believe you think Huffing is ok just because the product is sold in stores. Most products are that these losers use. It's all Illegal same as using drugs.
