Pemberton Couple Charged in Fatal Collision with Pedestrian

PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP - Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Pemberton Twp. Police Department Chief David King announced that a township woman has been charged with striking and killing a 72-year-old Browns Mills man as he was crossing Lakehurst Road in late 2019, and her husband has been charged with helping her try to conceal the crime.

Tonya Brown, 35, and Victor Brown, 44, of the 100 block of Kinsley Road, were both charged with Hindering Apprehension (Third Degree) and Tampering with Evidence (Fourth Degree). Tonya Brown, who was driving, was additionally charged with Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Accident (Second Degree), Endangering an Injured Victim (Third Degree), and Causing Death while Driving Unlicensed (Third Degree).

The defendants were taken into custody on December 29, 2020. Tonya was transported to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing, while Victor was lodged in the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly. They will each face a detention hearing tomorrow in Superior Court in Mount Holly.

The investigation revealed that on December 27, 2019 at approximately 7 p.m., the couple was traveling east on Lakehurst Road near Choctaw Drive in a Nissan Pathfinder when they struck Ronald Zukowski, who was attempting to cross the roadway.

The investigation further revealed that the vehicle sped away after striking Zukowski without stopping to provide assistance. The Browns then drove to a property on Bayberry Street and covered their SUV with a tarp.

Paint chips taken from Ronald Zukowski’s clothing were compared to chips taken from the Pathfinder by the New Jersey State Police Office of Forensic Sciences, which concluded the samples originated from the same vehicle.

This case will be prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Joshua Dennis. The investigation was conducted by the Prosecutor’s Office and the Pemberton Township Police Department. The lead investigators were BCPO Detective Sergeant Nicholas Villano and Pemberton Township Patrolman Vincent Cestare.

All persons are considered innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Impaired Driving Enforcement Crackdown to be
Conducted Locally as Part of Statewide Year End Campaign

(Pemberton Township, NJ) — Law enforcement officials from Pemberton Township will be cracking down on drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs as part of the annual end of year “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” statewide campaign. Beginning December 4, 2020 and continuing through January 1, 2021, local and state law enforcement officials will conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated.

The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort endeavors to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education. During the last five years New Jersey has experienced more than 36,000 alcohol involved crashes resulting in 648 fatalities. This is a critical law enforcement program that can save lives during a time of the year when social gatherings with alcohol increase the risk of impaired driving.

Last year, 22% of all motor vehicle fatalities in New Jersey were alcohol-related. Nationally, 10,511 people died in 2018 in drunk driving crashes. The societal cost associated with these crashes is estimated to be $44 billion annually.

Law enforcement agencies participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over 2020 Year End Holiday Crackdown offer the following advice for the holiday season:

• Take mass transit, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
• Spend the night where the activity or party is held.
• If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.
• Always buckle-up, every ride. It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
• If you are intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive or escort you to your doorstep.
• Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel.

Woman Charged with Creating Fictitious GoFundMe Campaigns

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Pemberton Township Police Chief David King announced that a 33-year-old Little Egg Harbor woman has been charged with creating a fictitious GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the funeral of her 4-year-old son, who she claimed died of cancer, but in reality had been adopted by a Pemberton Township couple after she signed away her parental rights.

Holly Garcia, of Lake Champlain Drive, was charged with Computer Criminal Activity (Second Degree) and Attempted Theft by Deception (Third Degree). She was taken into custody September 24 and released last week following an initial appearance in Superior Court in Mount Holly. The case will now be prepared for presentation to a grand jury for possible indictment.

The investigation began in June after a couple from Pemberton Township who recently adopted Garcia’s 4-year-old son contacted police to say that his photo was being used in a GoFundMe campaign seeking $5,000 for funeral expenses for a child who had reportedly died from cancer.

The investigation revealed that Garcia created the campaign. Further investigation determined that Garcia had created multiple fictitious GoFundMe campaigns seeking money for the following: an urn for her dead son’s ashes; assistance for her 4-year-old son who is going blind in one eye (and whose father had died); assistance for her unborn child; a stroller for her two-month old son, who was born premature; and assistance raising rent money for an apartment, because she claimed she was four months pregnant and homeless.

The total amount requested by Garcia through all of the campaigns was $11,350. The campaigns were ended by the company after being notified by law enforcement that they were not legitimate. Garcia did not receive any contributions before they were taken down.

Garcia will be prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Joseph Remy, supervisor of the BCPO Financial Crimes Unit. The investigation was conducted by the Pemberton Twp. Police Department, with assistance from the BCPO Financial Crimes Unit. The lead investigator is Pemberton Township Police Detective Joshua Danka.

Pemberton Drug Dealer Pleads Guilty to Causing Customer’s Death

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina announced that a drug dealer from the Browns Mills section of Pemberton Township pled guilty today in Superior Court to causing the death of a customer by supplying the fentanyl-laced heroin that led to her fatal overdose early last year.

Under an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office, Terrance D. Walker, 38, of Liberty Street, pled guilty to Strict Liability for Drug-Induced Death (First Degree) in exchange for eight years in New Jersey state prison.

The Hon. Philip E. Haines, J.S.C., scheduled sentencing for October 30.

The investigation began in May 2019 after Tessa McCullough, 21, was taken to a Mount Holly hospital and pronounced dead following an overdose in her Pemberton Township home.

An autopsy performed by Burlington County Medical Examiner Dr. Ian Hood determined that her death was due to fentanyl toxicity. The investigation revealed the drugs that led to her fatal overdose were purchased from Walker.

Walker has been in the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly since being taken into custody at a Maple Shade motel in October 2019 by the Burlington County Sheriff's Department Warrant Unit, the U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Pemberton Township Police Department.

He is being prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Jeremy Lackey.

The case was investigated by the Pemberton Twp. Police Department, the BCPO Gang, Gun and Narcotics Task Force and the BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit, with assistance from the Mount Holly Township Police Department - NJ and Mount Laurel Police Department.

XL buffalo chicken pizza from Papis :) Putting my dinner order in. Btw not an emergency but this little boy got it, so I'm trying. Lol posted same on other page. 🤷‍♀️ ps.. you guys are awesome.:)
Okay now! Pemberton Borough police has shot in killed a man and they have no body cameras. Why is that??? In October of 2018 they were given a $75,000 grant by the government for body cameras. ( https://www.burlingtoncountytimes.com/news/20181008/pemberton-township-police-to-be-equipped-with-body-cameras ) $75,000 of which it is required that they match that grant with another $75,000. So, they should have a $150,000 for body cameras, where are they? Willingboro has them, Mt. Laurel has them, even Beverly City one of the smallest police forces in New Jersey has body cameras. Why does Pemberton Borough not have body cameras? https://www.burlingtoncountytimes.com/news/20190723/pemberton-police-shooting-puts-focus-on-body-cams #TheSpeakOutNowMovement #WhyDoesPembertonBoroughNotHaveBodyCameras?
A special thanks to patrolman Steve Price. For making me laugh. Pemberton township police department is the best police department on the whole planet in my opinion. You guys are the best.
A special thanks to patrolman Bartleson for being such a great friend. And for demonstrating outstanding people skills. And patrolman Laughin for making my day and doing his best to keep Pemberton township safe. And patrolman Bruce Phillips for being so kind and generous and understanding. Thank you.
It's good enforcement for law enforcement, instead of Officers using guns, this way they stay safe and the citizens stay safe! Now maybe they can do something for the homeless roaming the streets. Maybe use the empty BCCC BLDNG. It's close to the police department. The police K9 could be useful there, county workers ,and volunteers could work with the homeless . Browns Mills needs to be cleaned up . We're paying taxes for negative results.
Thank you for all you do!!
I'd like to thank the Pemberton Police Officer that randomly pulled up beside my car on the side of the road this morning, asking if I was alright and needed help! You were my angel because I was very lost and was getting stressed! You easily could have driven by me, but instead, you stopped. A simple gesture that changed the course of my day, literally! Lol. Thank you!
i have a fire arm permit from another town where do i go 2 change the address and what info do i need
