LPD: wanted person apprehended

Updated: The man who ran from our Officers last night was just apprehended!
Just a short time ago Officers from Howell Township Police Department arrested Justin Schneider of Brick NJ.
Thank you for the assistance Howell PD!!!

On July 7th at approximately 11:15 pm. Officer Kevin Seunath encountered a group of men walking along Country Club Drive after receiving a complaint of suspicious activity from a concerned citizen. Upon exiting his patrol car he made contact with the men and began collecting preliminary information.

An off duty police Officer from a neighboring town saw that Officer Seunath was by himself and stood by until the arrival of additional Lakewood Officers.
During the encounter it was learned that one of the men, identified as 26 year old Justin Schneider of Brick NJ, had an outstanding traffic warrant for his arrest out of East Orange.
Mr. Schneider immediately stood up and fled on foot across four lanes of traffic on County Line Road. Officer Seunath as well as Officer Kevin Bell who was now on scene, gave chase but lost sight of him in a residential backyard.
Officer Seunath received a laceration to his arm while jumping over a 6 ft chainlink fence which required medical attention.
At this time additional charges have been filed against Schneider for Resisting Arrest By Flight, Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer and Obstruction. Bail was set in the amount of $15,000 by Municipal Court Judge Scott Basen.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Justin Schneider is urged to contact Dsgt. Staffordsmith at 732-363-0200 ext 5318.
