November 7, 2016
@ approximately 5:50 AM – Police arrested Rita M. Desanto, age 66 of Clifton Park, NY and charged her with receiving stolen property following contact with her at the Hampton Inn on Royal Road. Police were initially called to the hotel by Desanto who reported items stolen from her vehicle, a 2015 Freightliner Sprinter van, in the parking lot there. Further investigation revealed that the van, a rental vehicle, was entered NCIC as a stolen vehicle out of Massachusetts. Desanto apparently rented the vehicle but failed to return it when due. Desanto was also found to have active warrants for her arrest issued out of Ewing Township Municipal Court ($1,370 bail) and Andover Township Municipal Court ($750.00).
Bail was set on the charges out of Raritan Township at $5,000.00 with 10% option. After processing, Desanto was turned over to the Hunterdon County Department of Corrections to be lodged in the Somerset County Jail in default of bail. The items that Desanto had originally called to report as stolen were located in the van. Arrangements are being made to return the van to Ryder Truck Rental. Investigation and arrest by P.O. Dustin Pflug.
