  • Richard Nelson, 38, of Trenton, was arrested on Dec. 8, 2021 and charged with burglary after TPD officers were dispatched to a burglary at a business in progress at 1021 East State Street. Officers located the individual behind the building with items from the business after it had closed. 
  • Tariq A. Stephenson, 37, of Trenton, was arrested on Dec. 15, 2021 and charged with weapon and drug offenses after Violent Crimes Detectives received information from a confidential informant regarding a man with a gun. An investigation led officers to Stephenson, who was found to be in possession of a Polymer 80 ghost gun with an extended magazine. Additionally, he was found to be in possession of one Alprazolam pill.
  • Two juvenile defenders, 16 and 17, of Trenton, were arrested on Dec. 19, 2021 and charged with weapon and drug offenses following a Street Crimes Unit motor vehicle stop in front of 6 Kingsbury Square. Upon the arrival of TPD, one of the juvenile defenders ran from the parked vehicle armed with a semi-automatic handgun. Detectives gave chase and apprehended him without incident. 
  • Temaine Pines, 49, of Newark, was arrested on Dec. 19, 2021 after being wanted for multiple attempted homicides. The Fugitive Task Force out of Newark, N.J. needed assistance locating Pines, an interstate fugitive. Pines was located and arrested without incident and was then transported to headquarters for processing and turned over to the Fugitive Task Force personnel. 
  • Abdullah Rasheed, 62 and Andre Riggs 59, of Trenton, were arrested on Dec. 17, 2021 and charged with drug offenses after the Daytime Task Force received numerous complaints from business owners regarding the open distribution of a controlled dangerous substance. Surveillance observed Rasheed making multiple drug transactions in the area of N. Broad Street. A separate surveillance resulted in the arrest of Andre Riggs who was observed engaging in illegal narcotic activity.

On Sunday December 12, 2021, officers were detailed to 14 Cottage Place on a suicide attempt. Upon arrival, along with assisting units, officers secured a perimeter around the house and placed patrol vehicles at both ends of the street to restrict traffic in the area.  Shortly thereafter, individuals wife arrived on scene and provided TPD with the individuals cell phone number. Officers tried several times to contact the individual, however the phone didn't ring and went right to the voice mailbox. After securing the scene, officers utilized a marked patrol vehicle's PA system and attempted to make contact with individual who came to the front window holding his phone. Officers again advised the individual to answer his phone. Officers attempted to call his phone again and this time he answered. Several minutes later, the individual exited the residence and was pat frisked for weapons with negative results. The individual agreed to walk to the ambulance and was transported by TEMS to Capital Health Regional Medical Center (CHRMC) CRISIS Center. Officer’s filed for a Temporary Extreme Risk Protection Order (TERPO). This is another great example of the de-escalation training being put to use in the field by TPD officers.
