Correction: June 8 Kearny police blotter


A production error led to the deletion of parts of two May 27 entries in last week’s Kearny police blotter.

The entries should have read:

  • Officers Victor Girdwood and Steve Podolski were on patrol at 3:45 a.m. at Harrison and Bergen Aves. when a 2008 Audi reportedly swerved from the middle lane and nearly struck their marked police car. Police said the motorist, Nevin Perkins, 20, of Jersey City, was found to have a suspended license and three warrants: a $1,000 drug-related one from Denville and two MV warrants, $675 from Rockaway and $200 from Lake Hopatcong. He was arrested on all of the aforementioned and also received summonses for careless driving and driving while suspended.

• • •
