A Brick woman who vowed to sleep at the township's municipal building until her concerns were heard - and did spend the night there last night - did not have to wait long.
After Melinda Murray Moich posted a video of herself on Facebook claiming that she had already spent one night at the hall, she and township police met and discussed her concerns.
According to the video, Moich was "occupying Brick" because she could not press charges related to a party that allegedly occurred at her house August 4. Two family members allegedly held a party at her home without her permission while she was away, she told Patch.
When she arrived home, she claims she found empty liquor bottles and drugs in the home, and was dismayed to find out that Brick police had arrived at the home the night of the party to break it up, but allegedly made no arrests.
"She got home from vacation, and the party occurred while she was away. In our initial response we didn't recognize there was a theft," said Captain Robert Mazza.
Moich claims she was told she could not press charges against her nephews in municipal court, because not all of the party attendees were identified. Many left when they learned police had arrived, Mazza told Patch.
As a result, the muncipal court ruled there was no probable cause for the charges, but as a result of today's discussion, Moich said that police are investigating possible thefts that may have occurred that night.
