Brick, New Jersey man who drove over family of geese in Toms River pleads guilty
The Brick man who drove over a family of geese outside the Home Depot in Toms River in 2019 has plead guilty to Animal Cruelty, Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer announced on Monday.
Quintin Alec-Manning, 22, is now facing 90 days in the Ocean County Jail as a condition of Probation, community service, and an Order prohibiting him from owning or working with animals in the future.
Toms River Police responded to the Indian Head Shopping Center in late May of 2019 to begin an investigation into who drove over the geese.
They spoke to witnesses and shop owners to try and identify who did it.
It was not a long search, TRPD wrapped up the investigation in less than 48-hours as they arrested Alec-Manning.
Ocean County Scanner News released a photo of the Toms River attack that is very graphic and not for the faint of heart.
Toms River Police worked with the Ocean County Prosecutors Office and NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife on the case.
His attack came days in 2019 after a report of Canadian Geese being viciously attacked by a family near a retention pond in Lakewood surfaced according to an eyewitness, although no connection was found.
The Lakewood geese case is still under investigation by Lakewood Police and the State DEP/Division of Fish and Wildlife. If you know anything or have information on what happened and who committed that attack, contact Lakewood Police.
The Alec-Manning case was handled by Ocean County Assistant Prosecutor Victoria Veni on behalf of the State.
