Two Charged with Illegal Hunting

From the Star-Ledger (NJ) Wednesday, 1/14/04

Police arrested two people and charged them with illegally hunting on private property along Chapin Road over the weekend, authorities said.

Michael Fornelius, 26, of Elmwood Park was arrested on weapons charges, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of prescription drugs, said Captain Ed Rosellini of Montville.

Fornelius' companion, Dawn X, 32 of Pine Brook was charged with unlawful possession of weapons.

Police originally were called to the area on a report of children playing on ice, Rosellini said. When they got there, a pedestrian waved them down and said she thought she saw two people hunting in back of Champion Mortgage.

The two were baiting and shooting deer, Rosellini said. They had two shotguns and a rifle

Dawn X received a summons and was released, but Fornelius was incarcerated at the Morris County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail, Rosellini said.

Fornelius remained at the jail yesterday afternoon, but was expected to be released .
