HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Sgt. John Schauder issued a special complaint to Mr. Naik Mehulkuma, the owner of the Red Carpet Inn & Scottish Inn, for violating the township ordinance regarding “nuisance properties,” on Wednesday, August 12.
To be considered a “nuisance property” under the ordinance, the police must respond to 30 qualifying calls (does not include alarms and medical aid calls) within a 60 day period.
The Hanover Police responded to the property 30 times in less than 60 days from June to August, therefore, violating the ordinance. Mr. Mehulkuma was provided with 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.
