The department issued the warrant back on January 2nd for a home invasion on 3rd Street that took place on the day after Christmas, according to a news release issued yesterday.

The woman was known to the victim and the dispute was believed to have began over money. The woman and a male accomplice are said to have traveled from out of state to commit the crime and fled from Union City shortly thereafter.

Police Chief Richard Molinari reiterated what he said after a swearing in ceremony last month: that this appears to be an isolated incident.

“It is the Union City Police Department’s understanding, that through a thorough investigation, that this was an isolated incident and residents should not be concerned that they are targets by these suspects,” the chief said in a statement.

“This should serve as a reminder, however, that residents should be aware of their surroundings and always report any suspicious activity.”

Additionally, State Senator (D-33)/Union City Mayor Brian Stack commended the department for their diligence.

“I am thankful for the comprehensive and successful investigation by the Union City Police Department in assessing the situation and identifying the suspect,” Stack said in the same statement.

“My administration remains committed to ensuring the safety and quality of life of all residents. I would also like to thank residents for their diligence in continuously reporting incidents.”
