Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski,
Tewksbury Township Police Chief Thomas Holmes, and Readington Township Police Chief
Sebastian Donaruma announced the arrest of one individual on outstanding warrants.


On August 1, 2017, Somer Stephenson, age 40, of Califon, was arrested by the Hunterdon
County Fugitive Task Force and the Tewksbury Township Police on numerous warrants
originating from Hunterdon and Warren County. In addition, Ms. Stephenson was arrested for
Hindering Apprehension, a third degree crime, after she fled into the woods when approached by
police.
A K9 Officer and handler from the Readington Township Police Department assisted in the
apprehension of Ms. Stephenson.
The filing of a criminal complaint is merely a step in the criminal justice process. The defendant
is presumed innocent until the matter is resolved in a court of law.
