Montville Township bust could lead to charges from police departments in East Hanover, Boonton Township, Harding, Chester Township and Wayne, authorities say.
Montville police say the arrests of three people in connection with an alleged burglary at Condurso's Garden Center in the township could help solve thefts from other garden centers and floral shops in Morris and Passaic counties. After a burglar alarm was triggered at Condurso's around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, Montville Ptl. Robert Koetzner pulled over a woman who was driving on side streets away from the area of the garden center and farm market. The driver, Natalie Johnson, a 27-year-old whose last known address was in Morristown, and two passengers, who police say were sitting low in the car—Eric Allred, a 25-year-old Morristown resident, and Michael Blackman, a 19-year-old Randolph resident—were arrested in connection with the incident at…
Tourism commissioner says rental market is healthy.

Reality star has been busy marketing her new line of desserts.
Kathy Wakile almost didn’t return for season five of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Wakile, a Wayne resident, has been busy marketing her dessert line, Dolci della Dea, on QVC and other places. She appeared at a charity event for Superstorm Sandy victims last November. “It’s a startup business that I started on my own with my husband. That right there is a big, big step,” the reality star told wetpaint.com. “We went through a lot to get it off the ground.” Wakile said the dynamic of the show hasn’t really changed despite a new cast member or two being rumored to join up this season. Season 5 premieres at 8 p.m. June 2 on Bravo.

Nationwide, gas prices were predicted to be lower this summer compared to the last three years, but that won't translate into savings at the pump this Memorial Day weekend, experts said.
