$5,000 Reward offered for information leading to arrest of tire slasher in Lakewood

The ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) announced that it is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for slashing over 100 tires in Lakewood, this past weekend.

The story was first reported by The Lakewood Scoop.

As earlier reported, the incident is being investigated as a potential bias crime.

“We are deeply alarmed and concerned by the possible bias motivation underlying the extensive vandalism in Lakewood over the weekend,” said Evan R. Bernstein, ADL NY/NJ Regional Director. “The entire Lakewood community must come together to stop inflammatory language, ease tensions and stop these incidents in their tracks. Ocean County is simply no place for hate, and we thank the Lakewood Police and Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office for investigating.”

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Lakewood Police at 732-363-0200.

  • Steven Mitchell Einhorn says:

    Really? This should be easy.
    Use Facial Recognition like the NJSP or NYPD.

  • zumy says:

    Facial recognition has a chance of working when the face is exposed and visible.This guy knew what he was plotting and he dressed the part.The only thing distinctive about him is his gait.

  • Uber Chochum says:

    Actually, it is not facial recognition that is needed here but more like gait recognition software such as Watrix AI.
