Saying they had been "swatted," police are investigating two false reports of shootings in Bala Cynwyd in Lower Merion Township Saturday. "Nobody was shot in our township," a Lower Merion Township police dispatcher said Saturday. When "swatting," callers play a dangerous trick on law enforcement by contacting police to report crimes that never occurred, prompting officers to rush to the scene for no reason. Besides wasting resources, it creates unecessary danger as officers drive quickly to the scene.

TRENTON - A watchdog group led by a Democratic operative on Thursday asked the New Jersey State Ethics Commission to investigate whether Gov. Christie broke the law by allegedly accepting "gifts of foreign travel and lavish lodgings and entertainment" on his 2012 trip to Israel. The complaint comes after the New York Times reported Monday that Christie and his family flew to Israel on a private jet provided by the billionaire Sheldon Adelson while the Las Vegas casino magnate was lobbying against legislation that would ultimately legalize online gambling in New Jersey.

By tracking their customers' purchases of burritos, purses, and camping equipment, two former Capital One employees made a stock market killing - nearly $1 million a year. The only problem, U.S. securities regulators say, is that the unusual scheme devised by the credit-card company's fraud investigators broke federal insider-trading rules. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed suit this week against Bonan Huang, a 32-year-old Chinese national residing in Glen Allen, Va., and Nuan Huang, 36, of Richmond, Va., both of whom have since lost their jobs.

Bronson said prosecutors had no obligation to share investigative material produced by agencies other than law enforcement, such as the mayor's office, under pretrial evidence-sharing rules.
