030816fredyjeremyTucked into a nondescript, partly vacant strip mall next door to a car wash on Newman Springs Road in Red Bank, Fredy Jeremy’s is a delightful surprise.

Retaining the pizza and subs offered by the previous tenant, Red Bank resident Fredy Menjivar livens up his six-month-old restaurant with his scrumptious take on traditional  Salvadoran fare.

MAN BUSTED IN LITTLE SILVER I.D. SCAM

By DUSTIN RACIOPPI just_in1

An Asbury Park man was arrested in Little Silver Tuesday for allegedly bilking strangers over the course of a year by impersonating a local pizza owner.

James Harrington, 45, was caught near the Little Silver Post Office shortly after scamming a woman, Sgt. Daniel Shaffery said.

The scheme Harrington is accused of was simple: he would approach a person and say he was the owner of Luigi’s Pizza in Little Silver, had locked himself out of his car and needed money for a cab or locksmith. Harrington is alleged to have pulled the scam in towns other than Little Silver, Shaffery said.

As part of the scam, Harrington would tell people his name was Jim Russo, Schaffery said. Luigi’s is owned by Al Patel, who has not been a happy man the last year.
