Raritan Borough Police Blotter - January 23rd News


The Raritan Borough Police Department announced the arrest of Scott Edge, 47, of Flemington, NJ for Criminal Mischief, Theft and Trespassing. On January 23rd, 2023 at 3:16 p.m., Raritan officers were dispatched to Char Restaurant on Route 202, which was closed at the time, for a male sitting at the bar smoking a cigarette. Officers were also made aware that two employees were on premise and unaware the male was in the building. On scene, officers entered the business through a rear entry door and encountered Edge at the bar and he was holding a hammer. Edge was taken into custody after he relinquished possession of the hammer. Officers learned that Edge had taken several delivery packages outside of the business, which he opened and placed in his vehicle. Edge then entered the business by smashing out the window of the front entrance door. Edge was subsequently transported to police headquarters for processing and released pending a court appearance. NOTE: The charges are merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
