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.

A second South Jersey community is balking at plans by real estate developer J. Brian O'Neill to locate a drug and alcohol treatment center in its midst. Unlike in Haddonfield, his dispute with Gloucester Township has landed in court. O'Neill wants to establish a Recovery Centers of America facility in Gloucester Township near the Blackwood campus of Camden County College. The township recently rejected O'Neill's proposal for a 37-bed residential treatment facility on Peter Cheeseman Road, saying the property is not zoned for a drug center.

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.

Demetrius Minor, 16, must serve 85 percent of his sentence for the aggravated manslaughter of Theotis Butts before he will be eligible for parole.

It's not a big deal, said Gloucester Township Mayor David Mayer, who grew up in Runnemede. "This is tremendous," he said.
