The following information was provided by the Washington Township Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A Franklinville man was arrested and charged for violating New Jersey’s Fish and Game regulations while hunting near Rock Spring Park, Washington Township Police Lt. Mark Niemynski said.

After hearing gunshots in the area of the park, police responded to East Springtown Road where they found Owen Sturm, Jr., 40, walking between Camp Washington Road and the Washington Township Library, Niemynski said.

An investigation showed that Sturm had a loaded firearm within 450 feet of an occupied dwelling, a violation of Fish and Game regulations, Niemynski said.

Sturm was issued a summons with a mandatory court appearance and released on his own recognizance.
