SOUTH AMBOY – South Amboy Mayor Fred Henry praised the South Amboy Police Department for two recent busts in the city.

Mayor Henry commended Chief Darren Lavigne and his team for a prostitution bust that took place at My Favorite Massage on North Broadway and a traffic stop that led to a drug bust.

“Recently we had the arrest of alleged prostitution going on in South Amboy down on Broadway,” Henry said. “I know these things don’t happen overnight. There’s been surveillance going on for many months on this and the Police Chief had kept me informed of what was going on.”

“I also want to thank [the police department] for the arrest of a speeder in town who was also in possession of marijuana and heroin which was there for the intent of distribution,” Henry added. “Again, the observance of our police department and police officers in recognizing that it was something other than a speeding ticket that was needed in this case.”

“I’d like to thank the police department for all the work they do to keep the city of South Amboy safe.”

All council members were in attendance for the meeting.
