VIDEO: Jewish War Veterans group honors LPD for apprehending teens who defaced Lakewood playground with Swastikas

2[VIDEO BELOW – VIA OUR NEW KOSHER PLATFORM] A group of men and women from the Jewish War Veterans of the United States New Jersey division this evening honored the Lakewood Police Department for the arrests of two teens responsible for vandalizing a Jewish Lakewood school with Swastikas.

The arrests stemmed from an incident during the Summer, first reported by TLS here, in which Swastikas and other anti-Semitic messaged were scrawled into the playground at a Jewish school on Second Street. The teens were arrested about three weeks later, and were charged with Bias Intimidation as well as Criminal Mischief.

This evening, the men and women from the JWV expressed their appreciation for the arrests by honoring the Police Chief and Township with a plaque. The group also made a donation of $500 to the PBA Local 71.

“It was gratifying to see a group of distinguished war veterans come out and express their appreciation for Lakewood’s finest,” Mayor Miller told TLS, “and Lakewood had the opportunity to return the appreciation for their many years of dedicated service.”
