Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Cedar Grove Police Chief Richard Vanderstreet have announced that, earlier today, authorities raided four massage parlors operating in Cedar Grove, New Jersey. Five women, all of whom were working in the establishments, were arrested during the raids and charged with prostitution offenses.

The investigation began earlier this spring when both the Cedar Grove Police Department and the Prosecutor's office received complaints about possible prostitution activity occurring at the establishments. As the investigation progressed, detectives from the Bergen, Hudson and Passaic County Prosecutor's Offices assisted detectives from Cedar Grove and Essex County.

Earlier this afternoon, detectives from the aforementioned agencies conducted raids at the following locations:

1. Zen Massage and Therapy, 908-B1 Pompton Avenue;

2. Spa Oasis, 412 Pompton Avenue;

3. Angel Spa, 569B Pompton Avenue;

All five women were charged with Engaging in Prostitution, according to Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas S. Fennelly, of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit. All five were released on their own recognizance after being processed on the charges according to Fennelly, who added that the women received summonses to appear in Cedar Grove municipal court in the near future.

Acting Prosecutor Murray praised the work of the detectives from Cedar Grove, and the Bergen, Hudson and Passaic county agencies, as well as the detectives and assistant prosecutors   from her office, who worked on the investigation. Acting Prosecutor Murray added that the assistance provided from the other agencies was instrumental in the success of this operation.

The matter is being investigated by the Essex County Prosecutor's Homicide and Major Crimes Task Force and the Bloomfield Police Department.

The investigation is continuing at this time, according to Fennelly.

THE CHARGES AGAINST THE ABOVE NAMED INDIVIDUALS ARE MERELY ALLEGATIONS. THE DEFENDANTS ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT AT THIS TIME.

Operation Take Back

Cedar Grove Police to Participate in Operation Take Back New Jersey Medicine Disposal Day

The Cedar Grove Police Department will be hosting an Operation Take Back New Jersey local collection site as part of the Operation Take Back New Jersey Medicine Disposal Day.  The event will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2013 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the lobby of the Municipal Building at 525 Pompton Avenue, Cedar Grove.   This initiative, open to all residents, was organized to encourage citizens to properly dispose of their unused, unwanted and expired medicine.

The Operation Take Back New Jersey Initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse.  Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are increasing at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.  In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away, both potential safety and health hazards.    

This statewide effort, with many New Jersey Police Departments participating, is being spearheaded by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New Jersey Division.  Residents looking for more information on the program should visit www.dea.gov.  Please contact Lt. Joseph Cirasa at 973-239-4100  ext. 254 if you have any questions or need assistance.
