DWI Arrest:  On June 27, 2015 at 3:33 a.m., Ptl. Matthew Levine observed a vehicle stopped in the right lane of Route 23 North  and Jackson Avenue while the traffic signal was green.  The officer pulled behind the stopped car, approached the occupants and discovered the driver and the passenger to both be sleeping.  As the officer reached into the vehicle and put the car in park, he detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the interior of the car.  The driver woke up and was disoriented.  After performing several field sobriety tests, Eric Brandon Favuzza, 27 years old from Wanaque, was arrested, transported to headquarters and processed.  Mr. Favuzza was charged with delaying traffic, careless driving, and driving while intoxicated.  He was released to a third party and has a pending court appearance.

Grenade Found in Garage:  On June 29, 2015 at 8:31 p.m., Ptl. James Dericks responded to a residence on Third Street to investigate a report of a grenade that had been found inside a detached garage.  Ptl. Dericks spoke with the caller who stated that while he was cleaning out the garage of his deceased father, he located a grenade.  The caller immediately notified police.  The Morris County Sherriff’s Bomb Squad responded to the scene and removed the grenade without incident.  As a precaution, the Pequannock Fire Department and First Aid squad responded to the scene.  Also, in the interest of safety, four residences were temporarily evacuated.
