Lakehurst Borough

Traffic and Criminal Offenses

Town Overview

The town of Lakehurst first reached international fame as a winter resort around the turn of the 20th century, following the opening of the Pine Tree Inn in 1898. In 1911, the rope factory in the town burned down, prompting the formation of a volunteer fire department. Lakehurst is frequently cited as the site of the Hindenburg disaster, when on May 6, 1937, the German zeppelin Hindenburg caught fire at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station. In fact, the Hindenburg exploded over portions of Manchester Township, not Lakehurst. None of the Lakehurst Naval Air Station lies within the Borough of Lakehurst. New Jersey Route 70 is the main highway through the borough, which lies at the western end of New Jersey Route 37. County Route 547 connects from the North after paralleling the eastern edge of Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Lakehurst is located on the former Central Railroad of New Jersey Southern Division Main Line. The Barnegat Branch formerly extended from Lakehurst through Toms River and Beachwood down to Barnegat. Lakehurst is being considered as the southern terminus of the planned New Jersey Transit Monmouth-Ocean-Middlesex Line, which would closely follow the CNJ line. Many offenses in Lakehurst occur in residential areas. The Lakehurst Borough Police maintain speed traps and check points on a fairly regular basis.

Lakehurst Borough Municipal Court

The Lakehurst Borough Municipal Court only hears misdemeanor criminal offenses and traffic offense cases. In some instances, individuals charged with more serious offenses will have their initial court appearance in Lakehurst Borough Municipal Court before their matter is transferred to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office in Toms River.  A conviction for a violation like DWI, driving while suspended, or possession of marijuana can tarnish your record for a long time.  While the penalties of monetary fines, loss of driving privileges, community service, probation and sometimes even jail can be life-altering, the stigma of a having a criminal or motor vehicle conviction on your permanent record can haunt you for years to come.  Our office fights to avoid these outcomes.  We handle all Lakehurst Borough Municipal Court charges including Underage Drinking, Possession of Marijuana, Shoplifting, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Mischief, Speeding, Reckless Driving, Racing, DWI, Refusal, driving without insurance and driving while suspended or revoked.  We also help you seek the help you need if your actions were the result of a drug or alcohol addiction.  If you are being prosecuted for a criminal charge or traffic ticket like one of these, give our offices a call and tell us about your situation.
