Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Rayvaughn Toney-el (18) of East Orange, N.J. for the theft on October 30, 2013.
On August 29, 2013, at approximately 5:00 P.M., the Fairfield police were contacted and advised that an African American male had just stolen a BMX bicycle that was in front of a house on Clinton Road. Officers were dispatched to the area but the suspect and bicycle were gone.
On October 19, 2013, at approximately 5:00 P.M., it is alleged that this same African American male was observed on Matt Drive handling a bicycle. This individual was confronted and eventually left the area. The police were called and the actor again evaded detection. However, this time, witnesses observed the actor to be wearing a shirt from a local business known as College Hunks Hauling Junk, located on Commerce Road.
On October 30, 2013, detectives responded to the Commerce Road business and identified Toney-el as a person of interest in the case. He was eventually brought to the Fairfield Police Department, where further investigation resulted in him being charged with the theft. Toney-el was eventually released on his own recognizance pending a November 13, 2013 court appearance date in the Superior Court in Newark, N.J. (It should be noted that the charge against Toney-el is merely an allegation and that he is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law)
