Police Secure Man Who Threatened to Jump Into Oyster Creek

Ocean Township resident transported to Community Medical Center

A 25-year-old Ocean Township man was transported Monday night to Community Medical Center for a mental evaluation after threatening to jump from an old railroad trestle in Lacey.

Police responded to Route 9 and the Ocean Township border with Lacey on a report of a despondent man threatening to jump from an unused trestle that spans the discharge canal of Oyster Creek Generating Station at 9:41 p.m.

The man voluntarily walked off the trestle after speaking with Officer John McKee for approximately 45 minutes, police said.

The Ocean Township Police Department, the Forked River Fire Department and the Lacey Township Dive Team also assisted at the scene.
