Toms River Police Jail Lakewood Man on Numerous Weapons Charges

Bail set at $300,000 for 29-year-old charged early Sunday

A Lakewood man is being held on $300,000 bail and faces weapons possession charges after Toms River police arrested him at a Route 9 strip club last weekend. 

Corporeal Art Pennell, Sgt. Michael Miller and Officers Jason Putkowski and Pascal Gambardella of the Toms River Police Department responded to Delilah's Den at 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning on a suspicious person call, said Chief of Police Michael Mastronardy.

Derek Slater, 29, of Lakewood, was "quickly arrested" by officers who recovered a 9 mm Smith and Wesson handgun, the chief said. 

Slater was charged with possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of a high capacity ammunition magazine, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on police officers, Mastronardy said.

Slater remains in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River on $300,000 bail, according to the Ocean County Department of Corrections.

$300,000 bail will keep him in there for awhile.Sandy pushed alot more than debris to this side of the bridge. There all over here, can't Ash-Britt the clean up contractor use their grappling hooks and toss them in a dumpster just like the 25 cent arcade games you used to play on the boardwalk.
