8k Child Support Warrant

On Thursday, May 7, at approximately 9:45 pm, Patrolman Sean Ross stopped a 2011 Dodge Charger on Route 31 near Payne Road for having tinted windows. During the stop, Ptl. Ross observed that the backseat passenger was not wearing his seatbelt and requested that passenger’s identification. The passenger replied that his name was “Mark Smith” though this was soon determined to be an alias. Ptl. Ross was able to identify the backseat passenger as Mark Montgomery Jr., age 31, of Manville. Upon entering Mr. Montgomery’s information into the NCIC system, Ptl. Ross learned that he was wanted by the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department for non-payment of child support. When Mr. Montgomery was unable to pay the $8,321.25 bail, he was arrested, charged with Obstruction of Justice and turned over to officers from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.
