Around 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve, the Orange Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to Dogburn Road near the Woodbridge town line for a vehicle roll-over.

First responders found the car off the road on its side. All of the occupants had gotten out of the vehicle on their own.

The narrow road was closed during the cleanup.

Remember, Orange is lucky to have a dedicated volunteer fire department. Many of the members who responded were celebrating the holiday with family and/or friends when the tone came in. They left these gatherings and rushed off to help someone in a time of need. That’s what they do. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, or how cold or hot it is. The men and women of the OVFD are always there for you.

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday. Don’t drink and drive. Take care!

Last Saturday, the firefighters responded to a fuel spill at a local gas station during the Santa’s Helper event.

One vehicle reportedly was involved in a collision with something and leaked a lot of fuel sometime before 5:30 p.m.

The firefighters are no strangers to cleaning up this type of spill, but the Fire Chief also called for DEEP to respond in order to protect the environment.

A local pet store was the victim of a possible break-in at 3 a.m. Friday morning and Orange Police are working to put the pieces together as to a motive.

The manager of PetSmart at 55 Boston Post Road (next to Best Buy) said someone in a van backed into the front doors of the store, which broke the glass, but did not damage the interior doors.

He said the security alarm sounded and must have scared the driver off before he could get out of the van. The suspect did not enter the store and the only damage was to the front door.

PetSmart has been opening at 8 a.m., one hour earlier than usual during the holiday season, and the staff was able to clean up the mess and open on time this morning.

Assistant Police Chief Max Martins said the OPD is treating the incident as an attempted break-in, but it’s still too early in the investigation to come to any conclusion

Orange Police: Observant Resident Reports Package Theft, Suspect Caught A Short Time Later

Dec 192018
 

This morning, Wednesday, December 19 at 11:13 a.m, Orange Police received a call from an alert citizen who observed someone take a previously-delivered package from her neighbor’s front porch on Saybrook Road.

She was able to give officers a description of a suspect and the vehicle he was driving.

Using this information, police located the blue 2008 Chevy Cobalt in the area and the suspect attempted to elude police by first driving away and ignoring officers’ attempts to get him to stop, then by abandoning his vehicle in a parking lot and attempting to flee on foot.

Coordinated efforts by the patrol and Investigative Service Divisions allowed officers to close in on the suspect’s position, and he gave himself up shortly thereafter.

The arrestee, identified as Corey Roberts, 28, of Monroe, was taken into custody and charged with driving a motor vehicle without Insurance, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, engaging police in pursuit, driving an unregistered motor vehicle, misuse of a marker plate, third-degree criminal trespass, and four counts of sixth-degree larceny.

Officers seized his vehicle from the parking lot of a nearby business. Inside the vehicle, officers found more packages and suspected stolen items.

If you did not receive a package that your carrier or seller is claiming was delivered (since Dec. 17), contact police directly at 203-891-2130.

At this time, it appears that Roberts may have targeted the Dogwood Road and surrounding residential areas.
