ONLY ON CVP: A quick call from a Wal-Mart security guard followed by an immediate alert from Saddle Brook police led to an arrest in Elmwood Park in the theft of a $200 cellphone.
An Elmwood Park police officer stopped 24-year-old Rodney Gonzalez’s car on Van Riper Avenue just before 7:30 last night, moments after he pushed past a Wal-Mart security guard and took off on Route 46 West, Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
Saddle Brook Sgt. Tony Maneri showed up with the security guard, who identified Gonzalez as the thief, Kugler said.
Gonzalez was released without bail pending a Municipal Court hearing on theft and shoplifting charges.
Kugler said the quickness and determination of all of those involved made the arrest possible.
