Gloucester Township police arrested a fugitive who had barricaded himself in his Adrienne Avenue home Monday night. Police arrived at 26-year-old Yuuki Nemoto's home in the 100 block just after 10:30 p.m. to deliver an arrest warrant to Nemoto, wanted by Gloucester County for failing to appear in court on a third-degree charge of stealing a vehicle. Nemoto refused to answer and began barricading himself in, Deputy Chief David Harkins said. Officers spent about an hour trying to lure him out before a SWAT team was called, and crisis negotiators spent an additional 11/2 hours trying to contact him. Nemoto finally answered the phone when SWAT officers broke through the front door, Harkins said.

IT'S ALL FUN and games until someone gets stuck in a tree. That was the life lesson an adult and two juveniles learned Thursday night when the hot-air balloon that they were riding in got tangled in a tree in Sicklerville. Gloucester Township police said they were called at 7:20 p.m. to Del Sordo Drive near Crossing Place, where they found the balloon dangling about 50 feet in the air. Police officers and firefighters were eventually able to help the pilot, whose name was not released, free the balloon and land safely.

THE LITTLE GIRL could coax a smile from Tim Gill even when he had none left. She'd seen Gill, a Philadelphia firefighter who served in Iraq with the Pennsylvania National Guard, sprint to the sink, doubled over with nausea. She whispered when Gill's headaches came and tiptoed during his bad dreams, but he remained the man she adored most. A few days before the funeral, she drew a picture of Gill, a stick figure sticking out its tongue, smiling for her one last time. "DADDY," 4-year-old Amanda Gill wrote above the figure's head.

PENNSAUKEN An abandoned Acme Market has sat vacant on the corner of River Road and 47th Street in Pennsauken since the 1990s. Graffiti scars its crumbling brick facade. Taupe-colored, dehydrated weeds fracture the lot's asphalt. "We always used to complain about it," said Jose Arces, 57, whose front door faces the blighted property.

Barbara Kellam crosses through a field of knee-high weeds and towering power lines in Sicklerville, still wearing the pink scrubs from her overnight shift as a nurse as she searches for sand and water. She calls a psychic, a Haitian priest, and puts him on speaker phone. Kellam didn't believe much in psychic powers until her cousin Erica Crosby, a mother of two, disappeared on New Year's Eve, the black dress she had bought online and was supposed to wear never removed from the box. Now - with Crosby's husband, Kyle, accused of killing her, but authorities unable to find the Mount Laurel woman's body - Kellam will take any clues she can find.

Along came Carl Breitinger, then a photographer for the Bulletin, arriving at Democratic Party headquarters in all innocence. But he wore a beard, as Tom Torok did, and irate officials thought it was Torok back for more dirt.

The first time bamboo grew in Vincent Lobascio's backyard, the retired Audubon borough commissioner didn't know what it was. Now he does. "The roots are like octopus tentacles," Lobascio, 89, says. "It could be a beautiful plant, but it really doesn't belong in an urban or suburban area like this. It needs to be controlled. " As residents of Audubon, Gloucester Township, Ocean City, and other communities with bamboo issues know, the high-rising, fast-growing plants can make good fences.

Friends and family of Carol Reiff tied the strings of about 50 purple balloons to running shoes, one a purple Nike, another a white and pink New Balance. The shoes were symbolic: Reiff loved running. And on Monday, as those who knew her cut the strings and released the balloons into the air, they were hopeful she was looking down. Reiff, 59, was found dead in June 2013 in a wooded area near her home in the Lakeview Apartments, on Lower Landing Road in Gloucester Township. A year later, authorities have not declared her death a homicide - partly because of a lack of clues - but are still investigating as if it were.
