Man Arrested in First Date Thefts
An Elizabeth man has been charged with stealing a dog and big screen television on his first date with a Morris County woman.
The Dover woman met Honey online and the pair went on a date last week. “Joel,” as she knew him, came back to her home. She left him alone for a time and when she came back the 23-year-old man was gone along with her terrier named Violet and a 50-inch big screen television. The TV was valued at $3,000 and the dog at $4,000.
The unidentified woman called police and a warrant was issued for his arrest. In the meantime, the TV and dog were left on her front steps. A vet determined Violet was in good health.
