HANOVER TOWNSHIP — On Sunday, May 12, Hanover Township Police Officer Edwin Sanchez charged Mr. Jorge Polanco-Urena with a township ordinance for open burning.

Officer Sanchez responded to a residence on Ridgedale Avenue for a fire in the woods.

Upon arrival he observed a pile of brush on fire in the backyard of the residence.

He also smelled the odor of gasoline.

After further investigation, it was learned that Mr. Polanco-Urena threw gasoline on the brush and ignited it in hopes of clearing the brush from his property.

However, he used too much gasoline and the fire got to big so he called 9-1-1.

He was issued a township ordinance complaint for open burning and was provided a court date.

Editor’s Note: An arrest or the signing of a criminal complaint is merely an accusation.  Despite this accusation, the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until he or she has been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
