Accused NJ armed robber arrested after day-long police standoff


A Monmouth County man has been charged with armed robbery and weapons offenses after a standoff with police that lasted more than 12 hours.

Just before 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Neptune Township Police responded to a pharmacy at 1200 Corlies Street for a reported theft.

The store clerk said a man with a gun asked for the money and got several hundred dollars, according to Monmouth County Deputy District Attorney Raymond Santiago.

Officers tracked 34-year-old Jeffrey Migliori to a nearby home on 11th Street, where the confrontation broke out.

Law enforcement authorities at the local, county and state levels responded to the scene, evacuating nearby homes and properties as a precaution.

Millhiore, who had previously been convicted of burglary and heroin possession, eventually surrendered peacefully around 10:30 p.m.

An Ocean Township resident was arrested and police recovered a gun from the scene.

Migliori remained in detention pending a hearing in Monmouth County Superior Court.

The Attorney General was among those who praised the peaceful outcome of the negotiations.

“The resolution of this extraordinarily delicate and complex situation without injury or loss of life to any civilians or law enforcement personnel was not accidental — it was the result of planned, coordinated and well-executed actions by dozens of members of local bodies,” Santiago said in a written statement. And the counties and the state, they’re working closely together in close quarters and under tremendous pressure.”
