Two Arrested in Vaping Investigation

While observing unlawful activities at the Wilson Avenue Deli, 198 Wilson Avenue, police arrested Nelson Yumul, 68, from Middletown. Additionally, police arrested Haq Khan, 25, from Jersey City, after he was observed engaging in illegal sales at Monmouth Smoke and Cigar Shop, 434 State Route 36 South. Both stores are located in the Port Monmouth section of Middletown Twp.

Both men were charged with the illegal sale of a flavored vaping product to a person under 21 years of age. Following their arrest, Yumul and Khan were transported to police headquarters, issued a summons complaint, and released pending a court date. Both subjects were arrested by Detective Ricardo Cruz.

I’ve had my dream job of waking up with all the great listeners and members of Brookdale Public Radio since January 3, 2005. Prior to this job, I began my career in radio at NJ 101.5 FM as a producer. From there, I took time off from radio to do other things. (including becoming a mom!)
