Deer Jumps Through Glass Doors. A deer from a nearby wooded area startled employees and customers at the Ethan Allen home furnishing store on Route 1 when it jumped through the front glass doors of the store on December 11 and became trapped inside.
West Windsor officers arrived on scene, evacuated the store, and were able to corral the frantic deer into a safe area, said Lieutenant Brian Melnick. The officers did so by arranging the furniture inside the store to guide the deer out of a rear door and back into the woods.
Theft. A Perry Drive resident was the victim of theft on December 10. Officer Justin Insalaco said the resident reported that a package delivered to her mailbox on December 10 was open and tampered with, and the merchandise being delivered inside the package had been stolen. She contacted the U.S. Postal Service and police to notify them of the theft.
DWI Arrests. Deborah A. Biondo, 41, of East Brunswick, was charged December 7 with driving while intoxicated. Sergeant Patrick O’Brien was working a special assignment targeting drunken drivers when he was notified that there was a car stopped in the parking area of the West Windsor transportation garage. He said he saw the driver slumped over the steering wheel, and that the vehicle was running. Officer Christopher Van Ness also responded to investigate, and the officers were told that the same vehicle was witnessed driving from Princeton into West Windsor from Washington Road at a high rate of speed.
O’Brien said he found Biondo to be intoxicated. He said she was barely able to speak and could not maintain her balance to stand. O’Brien said they became concerned for her health and requested EMS services. She was transported to the University Medical Center of Princeton.
