is no secret readers flock to the police and fire stories, and these are the
stories that brought in the biggest crowd over the last calendar year.
A dangerous issue with manholes at Morris and Elm Street drew your attention earlier this year, as did the arrest of 22 violent criminals in a major bust. A man wanted for a grisly Chicago murder fighting extradition from Morristown had your interest, as did a homeless man’s alleged sexual assault of a minor.
A series of brazen daytime burglaries in Morristown was enough to get you to stop texting and read along with a thief caught on tape stealing from the Melt Factory.
A woman hiding heroin in her sock labeled “happy hour” earned your business when it was posted as did an alleged drunk driver downing a dozen bud lite lemons before getting behind the wheel of the car.
Finally, an alleged drunk driver visited dreamland in the drive-thru of the Morristown Burger King and two hours later was arrested by police.
