LINDEN — Police arrested a 47-year-old Woodbridge man at the Linden train station on Wednesday who was wanted by Clinton Township detectives.
At 5:45 p.m. on June 5, Linden police were notified that Hector J. Crespo, who was wanted on a warrant from Clinton Township, was believed to be at the Linden train station. Officers located a man matching his description and placed him under arrest once he identified himself as Crespo.
Police found a car key in Crespo’s pocket and identified it as belonging to a 2008 Subaru Legacy that was parked in the lot. According to police, Crespo told the officers that it was his car, but when they ran the license plate it had been reported stolen from Clinton Township.
Linden police charged Crespo with receiving stolen property and turned him over to the Clinton Township detectives. Crespo also has contempt warrants out of Woodbridge, Old Bridge and Perth Amboy, police said.
The charges against Crespo are merely accusations; he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
