NJSP Investigating Arson Fire on GSP Near Lakewood

The New Jersey State Police Troop “D” Criminal Investigation Office is seeking the public’s assistance with an arson investigation that occurred on the Garden State Parkway in Ocean County.

On Wednesday, January 19, at approximately 5:00 PM, troopers responded to the report of a fire in the area of milepost 91 in Brick Township. Based on the preliminary investigation, detectives determined that the fire was started by several individuals, possibly juveniles, within a drainage culvert that runs underneath the Garden State Parkway from the 91 north entrance ramp to the 91 south exit ramp.

After starting the fire in the culvert opening on the south side, the suspects were seen running into the Evergreen Woods Park Apartment Complex, which runs parallel to the Garden State Parkway.

As a result of the fire, the Garden State Parkway was closed to all traffic between Wall Township and Lakewood Township for several hours.

  1. It’s probably the same delinquents that run around Lakewood settings dumpster fires but I’m sure even if caught nothing will be done as usual!
