UPDATE/Correction: This Incident Involved a Carjacking in Camden City


UPDATE (May 28, 2024): Gloucester City Police Lt. Jason Flood, the department's press spokesman, did not respond to our request for an explanation about this incident. However, this notice was posted on the GCPD's Facebook page later in the day. 

GCPD NOTICE--There was a large police presence in the area of Nicholson Road and Rutgers Avenue. The Camden County Police Department (CCPD) pursued a carjacked vehicle in Gloucester City. The suspects fled on foot to Jefferson Avenue. All four suspects were eventually apprehended and turned over to the CCPD on scene. There is no danger to the community at this time.

EDITOR'S NOTE: We had hoped by now that Lt. Flood or Chief Morrell would have answered our request for the reason Gloucester City Police had to call for help to quell the "Rumble on Broadway". That riot happened on Sunday evening, May 19, 2024, and ten days later we are still waiting for an explanation. It is our opinion that you, the public would not have known that disturbance occurred if it wasn't for our reporting. We feel the same about 6a00d8341bf7d953ef02a2eed322bc200d-300wi what happened today in Gloucester Heights; you would never have known about this if we hadn't reported it. 

Because the upper echelon of the police department has remained silent, the rumors that guns and knives were involved in that fight continue to swirl around the city. Residents are left wondering why the local police force of 37 officers could not handle the crowd. Local officers off duty are subject to being called when an emergency occurs. Did Chief Morrell summon the full contingent of the department that night? At what point did Chief Morrell feel that outside help was needed? 

It has been obvious to us for some time that Lt. Flood and Chief Morrell will continue to snub CNBNews as long as the present administration is in office. Or, until Mayor Baile tells those officers to answer any questions we have about crime incidents in our city. Sadly, their censorship of the Press harms you, the public

Instead of working with us to keep you informed, they do everything they can to keep you in the dark. They have forgotten who pays their enormous salaries and who elected them to office.
