Authorities in South Jersey are using a newly enhanced statute to crack down on human trafficking.

Police are making arrests.

“I had a protective and loving mother and farther, and yet I was exploited a at a very young age,” victim Lexie Smith said.

And to protect the young and vulnerable from the sex trade during the busy Super Bowl weekend, Governor Chris Christie says their task force is in full effect.

“We have eyes and ears on the ground and in cyberspace,” Christie said.

CBS New York

UNION, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A Union Township, N.J. man was arrested Monday, after authorities found an improvised explosive device and other weaponry Monday at his home.

Alfred Intrabartolo, 62, was charged Monday with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree certain persons not to own firearms, and third-degree possession of a destructive device, according to the Union County Prosecutor’s office. He was being held on $250,000 cash bail late Monday afternoon, and other charges were pending.

Last week, neighbors called police to complain about someone setting off low-grade explosive devices in a neighborhood near the Route 22 corridor in Union, prosecutors said. On Monday, authorities set up a surveillance operation, and allegedly caught Intrabartolo tossing an explosive device that looked like a large firecracker out of a moving vehicle.

Intrabartolo was arrested, and police found a loaded .32-caliber handgun and other explosives in his vehicle, prosecutors said.

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The robber was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A man wearing dark clothes and a ski mask walked into the TJ Maxx store on Route 73, went directly to the jewelry counter, and immediately smashed a rock through the glass case, police said.

The whole incident was caught on surveillance video.

The video shows the robbery suspect reaching into the case again and again.

The man grabbed $25,797 worth of watches and stuffed them into a bag and turned around to leave the store.

The two struggled on the floor, and the suspect lost his mask – and the loot, police said.

The man who took him down was an active member of…

CBS New York

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two people were killed and three others were wounded when someone fired several shots at a car outside a Newark restaurant.

But it’s not clear what sparked the shooting, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on Springfield Avenue in the city’s West Ward. Authorities say it appears that at least one of the victims was targeted by the shooter, but they declined further comment.

City Police Director Samuel DeMaio told The Newark Star-Ledger that the car’s driver, Akbar Muhammad, who is the son of a Newark imam, and a female passenger were killed in the shooting. The three other victims were all hospitalized in stable condition, but further details on their injuries were not disclosed.

Mom Who Lived With Sons In Storage Unit Takes Plea

I95 Street Journal

CBS Philly

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The mother of two children who were living periodically in a 5-by-10-foot unit at a central New Jersey storage facility will not have to serve a prison sentence.

Authorities say 28-year-old Sheena Johnson pleaded guilty Friday to child abuse and contempt charges as part of a plea deal that calls for her to serve four years of probation. She initially was charged with child endangerment after her sons, then ages 5 and 10, were found last April.

Officers checked the facility after Johnson was arrested for slashing her ex-boyfriend’s tires, an act she says occurred because he refused to drive her sons to school. The dispute eventually led police to the facility in Ewing, where the boys were found in good health.

Johnson said her desperate financial situation and lack of a family support system led her to use the climate-controlled unit as a shelter. Moved…
