Man Reported To Be 'Unconscious' In Lacey Woods Arrested For Toms River Warrant

John Sabie, who had an injury to his head, had a $1,000 Toms River Municipal Court criminal warrant and was turned over to police, authorities said.

Police said they arrested a Lacey man after he was reported to be "unconscious in the woods" and had an injury to his head.

According to Lacey police:

On Tuesday, June 10, at 4:02 a.m., 34-year-old Laura Mooney, of Burr Street in Barnegat, called 911 to report that her boyfriend, 28-year-old John Sabie, of 755 Birch Road in Lanoka Harbor, was unconscious in the woods between Cedar Drive and the Bayberry development in Lanoka Harbor.

Mooney reported that 51-year-old Rocco Selig of Cedar Drive in Lanoka Harbor provided her with the information. Officers attempted to make contact with Mooney, but she did not answer her phone and did not come to police headquarters.

Officers searched the wooded area for several hours but were not able to locate Sabie. Officers spoke with Selig, who denied making the phone call to Laura Mooney and denied knowing Sabie.

Later in the day at 12:15 p.m., Selig called Lacey Township Police Headquarters to report that he had found Sabie and walked him to the end of Cedarwood Drive in Lanoka Harbor. Ricciardella responded to the scene and confirmed that the subject was Sabie.

Sabie had an injury to his head and was transported to Community Medical Center by the Lanoka Harbor First Aid Squad. Sabie had a $1,000 Toms River Township Municipal Court criminal warrant and was turned over to Toms River Township Police at the hospital

Sabie also had a $250 Newark traffic warrant, but was released on his own recognizance by their court clerk.
