Mosquito spraying in Bergenfield on Thursday, October 4, 2018

Due to the amount of rain in our area, there has been a reported case of West Nile Virus in Bergenfield. As such, the Borough and the County of Bergen are taking proactive measures and will be performing enhanced aerial-based spraying in parts of Bergenfield on Thursday, October 4, 2018 from 3 am to 5 am. Aerial spraying is a very effective and safe way to kill adult mosquitoes in large, densely populated areas.
We understand that many people have concerns about exposure during aerial spraying; for those people, health officials suggest the following precautions:
  • Minimize exposure. Avoid being outside, close windows and consider keeping pets inside while spraying occurs.
  • If skin or clothes are exposed, wash them with soap and water.
  • Rinse homegrown fruits and vegetables with water as a general precautionary measure.
  • Cover small ornamental fish ponds.
  • Because the chemical breaks down quickly in sunlight and water, no special precautions are suggested for outdoor swimming areas.
  • Should a resident wish to not have their property sprayed, please contact the Bergen County Mosquito Control at (201) 634-2881.
Also contained in this website posting is a location map of the spraying; frequently asked questions regarding West Nile Virus; helpful hints to safeguard your property against mosquitoes; and other pertinent information. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Bergen County Mosquito Control at (201) 634-2881.

Press Release- Fraud Arrest

On Thursday, August 30th, 2018 at 2:07 pm, officers responded to the Chase Bank at 221 N. Washington Avenue, on the report of a male attempting to cash a fraudulent check.

 Upon arrival, officers interviewed the bank manager and the male suspect, identified as Yaseen Salih, age 21 of East Orange, NJ.  After speaking with the manager and the investigation that followed, it was determined that Mr. Salih attempted to cash two fraudulent checks, which totaled $1834.70.  During the incident, Mr. Salih also attempted to fraudulently use a debit card he had in his possession, which was in another person’s name.

Mr. Salih was placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters without incident. 

A warrant for the following charges was issued for Mr. Salih: 2 counts of 2C:21-1(a)3 (Uttering a Forged Document), 2 counts of 2C:5-1 / 2C:20-3A (Criminal Attempt of Theft), 1 count of 2C:21-17A (Identity Theft), and 1 count of 2C:21-6h (Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card). It was discovered that Mr. Salih is on Federal Probation and due to this arrest, the District Court of NJ issued a Federal Arrest Warrant for Mr. Salih for Violation of Pretrial Release Conditions.

 Mr. Salih was transported to Bergen County Jail without incident pending further court action.
