Police Investigate Vehicle Theft from Hollywood Avenue Driveway
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department is actively investigating the theft of a 2005 black Infiniti that was allegedly stolen from the driveway of a Hollywood Avenue residence on February 17, 2012 at approximately 8:00 P.M. The victim had just arrived home and noticed what he described as a red sport utility vehicle with pink-colored headlights and tinted windows, parked across the street from his residence. He did not give the vehicle a second thought for being there.
The victim apparently left the keys to the vehicle in it as he was taking items out of the car. A few moments later, he was advised by a group of juveniles that his car was missing, at which time, he alerted police.
Anyone with information about this or any other crime is encouraged to contact the Fairfield Police Department’s Investigative Division at (973) 227-1400.
Couple Arrested for Obstruction and Resisting Arrest
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Joshua Munn (21) of Fairfield, N.J. and Lauren Traettino (22) of Verona N.J. on February 10, 2012. The arrest took place at Munn’s Fairfield Road residence after Officer Gerald Veneziano observed Munn inside of his house. Munn was allegedly wanted on an active arrest warrant in connection to burglary and drug charges in Bergen County.
Additional officers responded to the scene, at which time, the officers announced their presence at the front door. It is alleged that Traettino refused to open the door and denied Munn was in the house. Even after lengthy negotiations took place between Traettino and police, she still refused to open the door. Police eventually forced entry and allegedly found Munn hiding in a bedroom closet.
Munn was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing the administration of law. Traettino was charged with obstructing the administration of law and hindering the apprehension of another. Munn was held on $5000.00 bail for the new Fairfield charges and was being detained as well on the Bergen County warrant. Traettino was held on $2500.00 bail. Both are scheduled to appear in Essex County Superior Court in Newark on February 16, 2012.
(It should be noted that the charges against both Munn and Traettino are merely allegations and both must be proven guilty in a court of law)

When they went to the residence, the officers allegedly discovered a window that had been removed from the frame and an unlocked sliding glass door.
The charges against the juvenile are being forwarded to the Essex County Family Court for disposition. (It should be noted that the charges against this juvenile are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until proven guilty)
