More than 65 sites — including several in Red Bank, Sea Bright, and neighboring communities — will be descended upon by teams of volunteers this Saturday, October 19, as Clean Ocean Action (COA) invites citizens and organizations to participate in the 28th Annual Fall Beach Sweeps.
“Clean Ocean Action is excited to continue to integrate Beach Sweeps into the Waves of Action program, a year-long initiative to recover and restore the NY/NJ coastline after the devastation of Sandy,” commented Catie Tobin, Clean Ocean Action Ocean Advocacy and Education Fellow.
Video taken from Liz Kelleher’s car as a Rumson police officer stopped the two suspects.
Two suspects are said to be in custody, stopped at gunpoint by a Rumson cop as they attempted to leave a West River Road bank they’d threatened to blow up, according to an eyewitness.
Mayor John Ekdahl confirmed the two arrests, and said the suspects had attempted to rob the bank using the threat of blowing it up. It remained unclear, however, if they in fact had an explosive device or any weapons.
redbankgreen‘s Dustin Racioppi describes a “surprisingly subdued scene” in Rumson as authorities respond to a purported bomb threat Tuesday evening.
As of 5:20p, West River Road remained closed from First to Third streets as police detour traffic around the Bank of America branch that a suspect, said to have been carrying a suitcase, purportedly threatened to blow up.
