On Friday 09/01/2017 at 2:47 pm, the Longport Police Department was advised of suspicious activity involving two hispanic males in the area of Winchester and Yarmouth Avenues.  Initial contact on the scene was made by Patrolman Guerrieri when the males soon fled the scene.  Patrolmen Rettino and Burgan located one of the males, later identified as 18 year old Jonathan J. Candelaria-Torres of Atlantic City, at North 32nd Avenue where a brief foot chase ensued.  Torres was apprehended and a loaded stainless steel Taurus .357 revolver containing hollow point bullets was recovered as he was trying to retrieve it from his waistband during the struggle.  Torres was charged with several criminal offenses and lodged in the Atlantic County Justice Facility.  Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Longport Police Department.  Investigation remains ongoing at this time.Image attachment

If you like rainbow chard, please visit the community garden behind Borough Hall. ๐ŸŒˆ



The rabbits have been visiting the gardens. Luckily, they don't seem to like the chard or zucchini. We'll need to think of things to plant for the fall. ๐Ÿ‚

We have lots of cherry tomato's there too! Rabbits ate all of our lettuce and bush beans early in the season!
