Resident Indicted on Charges of Stealing Jewelry

Ocean County grand juries hand up indictments

A Forked River man has been indicted on charges related to the theft of a Lacey woman's jewelry.

Jonah Derflinger of Taylor Lane was indicted by an Ocean County grand jury last week after being arrested in September for allegedly stealing two gold necklaces valued at more than $500 and selling them in Berkeley, the indictment states.

Derflinger was held on $10,000 bail but posted Sept. 25.

Grand jurors also indicted: 

  • Two Lanoka Harbor residents on a shoplifting charge.

Douglas S. Dunsmuir, 45, and Lillian M. Dunsmuir, 46, both of Hazelton Avenue, were arrested Sept. 8 at the Toms River Kohl's and accused of stealing more than $500 in jewelry and clothing.

Both are free on bail.

  • Elizabeth A. Tucker, 45, of Forked River on a theft by deception charge.

Authorities said Tucker failed to inform the Department of Veterans Affairs of her mother's death and continued to receive and spend benefit checks from July 1, 2005, to March 1, 2007.

Tucker was jailed on $10,000 bail but posted Jan. 23.

Ooh yeah, toms river is so much better. Wake up people... There is crime in every town! People are too quick to judge! Take a step back and look at the mistakes you yourself or people in your life have made. It's part of being human.
