Barnegat Police Help Elderly Woman Snowed in During Blizzard

The Barnegat Police Department took time out of their busy schedules during the aftermath of the blizzard to help a resident in need on Sunday.

On Sunday night, an elderly resident who lives alone contacted the Barnegat Police saying she was snowed in and was unable to access her driveway. Several officers responded with shovels in hand, ready to help.

After thirty minutes of teamwork, the woman's driveway was cleared and she had safe access to the street.

The Barnegat Police Department thanked Officers Lauren Keilitz, Nicholas Venuto, Anthony Carlo, and Stephen Russoniello, along with Sergeants Carroll and Eslinger for helping the woman out.
