For the week ending May 2, 2012 , the Brigantine Police Department responded to approximately 285 calls for service, including 43 Motor Vehicle Stops/Incidents (with 13 Summonses issued and 1 DWI arrest), 5 domestic dispute calls and 3 reported burglaries.

April 25th, Michelle Schmoll (age 47 of Brigantine) was arrested and charged with DWI, Careless Driving, Unlicensed Driver and Suspended License by Officer Lemenager.

April 27th: Police responded to a burglar alarm in the 600 block of West Shore Drive.  Upon officers’ arrival, a rear door and window to the property were observed to be opened. After clearing the home they began checking the area for further break-ins. A neighboring home had a rear window broken by an ornamental brick, but no apparent entry had been gained. Detective Ward was then called to process the scenes of the break ins. Further investigation by Officers Newcomer, Stroby, Powell and Sgt. McClaskey led officers to two males working at a nearby construction site. The males (identified as Bryan Brown age 30 of Newfield and Dean Danenhower age 26 of Monroeville) were found to have active warrants and taken into custody. Both were taken to the station for processing and after being interviewed by Detective Ward, Danenhower was charged on warrants with two counts of Burglary and one count of theft. Both men were later transported to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in default of bail.

April 28th, Police received a call from St. Georges Pub that a patron had attacked the bartender with a knife. When officers arrived on scene, they spoke with the bartender who identified Sergey Lukyantsev (age 58 of Brigantine) as the accused. According to officers’ reports, Lukyantsev had come to the establishment, went behind the counter and opened a bottle of vodka before being asked to leave. He allegedly returned a short while later with a knife in hand and was disarmed by the bartender while a patron called 911. Lukyantsev was taken into custody by Officer Sweet and transported to the station for processing. He was charged with Theft, Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for unlawful purpose, Robbery and Shoplifting. Lukyantsev was later lodged in the Atlantic County Justice Facility in default of $50,000.
