Police Arrest Holiday City Man After Chase Through Senior Communities

Toms River police have charged a Berkeley Township man with eluding arrest and a number of other violations after he refused to respond to a traffic stop and led offers on a chase through Holiday City.

Patrolman Adam Worth tried to stop a motorcyclist at the intersection of Route 37 and St. Catherine's Boulevard just after midnight, Police Chief Michael G. Mastronardy said.

John Horlowski, 53, Monserrat Street, was charged with eluding police, resisting arrest and numerous motor vehicle violations, including operating an unregistered vehicle and driving with fictitious license plates, the chief said.

Horlowski drove through the parking lot of Friendly's Restaurant and back onto Route 37. He then turned onto Mule Road and drove "numerous" streets in Holiday City at roughly 45 miles per hour, Mastronardy said.

Horlowski then hit a curb in the parking lot of St. Maximilian Kolbe R.C. Church and fled into the woods. Worth and Patroman Kyle Martucci took him into custody after a short foot pursuit, the chief said.

Hel should not be living here anyway! At 53, he probably giving false info.to the community , this place if full of them, Last night they should have gotten the drunk on the bicycle riding on Jamica that we almost hit. then he proceeded to the mini mall bought more booze and then went back on the bike. where are the cops then.

Holiday City is so noncompliant when it comes to the rules of 55 plus able to live in this community. If I lived in Holiday City, I would be at every HOA meeting voicing my opinion. However, this guys wife could be a eligible age, or he is a loser living with his parents who have got to be in their 70's. Stupid jerk.

He moved there 12 years ago, when he was 41. Enforce the law, Berkeley Township!

Slightly off topic but need to chime in here. I'm always interested in news in this neighborhood as i work and live here and I work damn hard. Times are hard for everyone and you don't need to be a druggie or a drunk to be in hardship. Holiday city's rule is 18+ if the owner/renter is 55+. If somebody is living there under 55 it doesn't make them a "loser" they're some people who work and are functioning and law abiding people who work full time jobs. Maybe this town should stop making affordable homes exclusively for "senior citizens" and all the "losers" will stay out.

Glad we chose to come to Crestwood Village instead of Holiday City. Seems to be a lot going on there.... Rules here are you have to be 55. If anyone stays with you who is younger, they can only stay 2 weeks. If someone is not complying to this rule, the homeowner does receive a letter and it is followed up on.

Regarding the above comment from 'I'...these senior communities were built over 20 years ago (when TR was a peaceful town), they were NOT built as affordable housing (at least not Silver Ridge), and if you are living with your parents in one these communities you should dam well be respectful of your neighbors and of your parents reputation unless, yes, you are a "loser"!!
