Man Targeted NJ School With Massive Arms Supply: Source
06/15/2019 7:12am

A Delaware man was arrested outside a New Jersey elementary school Thursday after he was found with a loaded handgun and massive supplies of ammunition, prosecutors say.The heavily armed man appears to have been targeting the school because of a relationship gone bad with a faculty member, according to a senior law enforcement official.Just before 4 p.m. Thursday, Westfield Police Department patrol officers and detectives responded to Tamaques Elementary School on a report from the New Castle County Police Department in Delaware that a man -- later identified as Thomas J. Wilkie, 46, of Bear, Delaware -- was en route to the school and possibly armed.A senior law enforcement official briefed on the investigation says that the brother of the man arrested with ammo and a weapon at a NJ school was the person who alerted authorities that Wilkie was in a bad place mentally.According to the official, Wilkie made entrance to the school searching for a woman he had been in a relationship with -- but he did not have a weapon on him at this point. When she wasnt there he allegedly returned to his car and called the woman who said she was at a tutoring appointment but would return to the school.Wilkie then waited in his car and called his brother, the official said. Based on that call, the brother was concerned about Wilkies state of mind and called the Delaware State Police and alerted them to the situation, according to the official.The school was placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure, and to identify any potential threats. After-school programs were active at the time.Arriving officers located Wilkie in the front seat of his vehicle, a 2019 Mitsubishi SUV, parked in the schools parking lot, holding a .45-caliber handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets, prosecutors say.It is illegal to possess hollow-point bullets in New Jersey unless you are a law enforcement, the law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said.Wilkie had two additional loaded clips of ammunition, while 130 additional rounds of ammunition were located in the vehicles trunk, prosecutors say.At this point law enforcement officials believe that Wilkie was out for the woman who he was formerly involved in a relationship and did not intend to kill others, but the amount of ammo is concerning they say, according to the person briefed on the case.He is charged with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, fourth-degree possession of hollow-point bullets, and fourth-degree trespassing on school grounds, Union County Acting Prosecutor Jennifer Davenport announced Friday. The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security has been assisting with the investigation.Wilkies first appearance and detention hearing scheduled to take place June 19.Convictions on second-degree criminal charges are commonly punishable by 5 to 10 years in state prison.Attorney information for Wilkie was not immediately known.A spokeswoman for the Westfield Public Schools said in a statement that the district is referring all inquiries to the Union County Prosecutors Office as this remains an active investigation.Photo Credit: Pexels/CC

06/14/2019 9:49pm

A class of fourth-graders at Wallingford Elementary School in Delaware County persuaded the owner of one of the biggest pizzeria chains in the United States to change his straw policy.The students wrote essays to Jim Ilaria, the CEO of UNO Pizzeria & Grill, in hopes of getting him to update his businesss straw practices. Newark Proceeds With Request-Only Plastic Straw Policy Within weeks, Ilaria responded by changing UNOs policy for giving out straws with drinks at its more than 100 restaurants to on-demand only.Susan Knight, the students teacher at Wallington, said she was ridiculously proud of her fourth graders accomplishment.I would say Im overwhelmed and I tear up at times because not only what they have done, but weve needed some pretty special adult help along the way, she said.On Friday, Ilaria visited the class complete with an UNO-style pizza party to celebrate their efforts to bring a positive environmental change.Small kids can make big changes to their world, Ilaria said. They know that they can change the world and thats whats important.He added, My franchise thought it was the right thing to do for the environment. Our franchise partners got behind this right away.The Wallingford kids didnt just change the straw policy at UNO.They also wrote essays to a local restaurant called Rubys Diner, which changed its policy within a week.Last month, Gov. Tom Wolf signed a proclamation making June 1 Skip the Straw Day in Pennsylvania.Years of plastic use, like straws, bags, and cups have led researchers to estimate that 90 of all seabirds and sea turtle species have ingested pieces of plastic, according to a report in the World Wildlife Magazine.Within a decade, the magazine has reported there could be a pound of plastic in the ocean for every three pounds of fish.
