Police arrested a 19-year-old suspect Sunday morning in the murder of a New Jersey police officer, the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office said.I blame the incendiary rhetoric of Eric Holder, Barack Obama and Al Sharpton for this murder. They now need to prove they had nothing to do with it.
Jahmell W. Crockam is accused of shooting Lakewood Patrolman Christopher Matlosz Friday afternoon after the officer drove up to him and began to question him.
He was arrested without incident in Camden on Sunday morning, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case who was not authorized to speak publicly.
The suspect had already been returned to Lakewood, where he was being held Sunday morning. He is expected to be brought before a judge on Tuesday. A judge has already set bail for him at $5 million, with no opportunity to post 10 percent of that amount in cash to gain his release.
Authorities plan to release details of the arrest at an 11 a.m. news conference.
Crockam, whose street name is “Sav,” — short for “Savage” — had fled to Camden, a poor city on the opposite side of the state, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. A dragnet encompassing at least three states and more than 100 officers had been searching for him since the shooting Friday at 4 p.m.
Authorities have said 27-year-old Matlosz drove up to Crockam as Crockam was walking and began speaking with him in a non-confrontational manner when the suspect suddenly stepped back, pulled out a handgun and shot the officer three times.
The suspect fled on foot, touching off a massive house-to-house search that involved armored vehicles, officers clad in body armor, teams of search dogs and helicopters.
Crockam had been a fugitive since December 29, when the prosecutor’s office obtained an arrest warrant for him on charges of possessing an illegal rifle and hollow-point bullets. It was not immediately clear whether Matlosz knew of the arrest warrant or whether that was why he approached Crockam and began talking to him Friday afternoon.

Democrat Cop Killer Named 'Savage' Arrested in NJ
How do we know he's a liberal Democrat? Well, we really don't know for sure. But based on the new civility and standards of reporting, we can only assume this maniacal cop killer is a Democrat. Until the left and the media disprove it, we'll stick to that story.
