Report of Suspicious Person Leads to Warrant Arrest
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Doremus Williams (48) of Boonton, N.J. for hindering apprehension on October 9, 2013. On that date, at approximately 3:55 P.M., the Fairfield Police Department received a report of a suspicious male in the area of Glenroy Road South that was apparently going door to door, looking for gasoline. Police were immediately dispatched to the area. Officer John McGrory found the individual, later identified as Williams, near the intersection of Glenroy Road South and Nell Court.
Williams allegedly told the officer that he had run out of gas and was looking for assistance. He also allegedly denied having any identification and provided the officer with his name and a date of birth that was later found to be fraudulent. Investigation revealed that Williams had active arrest warrants issued by the Morristown and Englewood Municipal Courts. He was placed under arrest. Officers then proceeded on to Route 80 and allegedly found Williams’ vehicle on the shoulder with an expired temporary New Jersey registration. The vehicle was impounded.
In addition to the hindering apprehension charge, Williams was also charged with driving while suspended, being an unlicensed driver, unregistered vehicle and failing to notify change of address. He was released into the custody of the Morristown Police Department. Williams is scheduled to appear in the Fairfield Municipal Court on October 17, 2013 to answer the charges. (It should be noted that the charges against Williams are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law)
