Jackenson Twp NJ, Authorities charged an Allentown (Monmouth County) man who was denied employment at an Ocean County amusement park after they said he had multiple weapons in his vehicle and at his home. Jonathan Fruchter, 38, sought a job at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson on August 29, but police said he was escorted out of the theme park because he acted irrationally and asked questions about security protocols.
Fruchter is accused of returning to the employee training center and harassing employees before security alerted two Jackson Township Police Department officers working in the area. Those officers arrested Fruchter after discovering a 9 mm handgun, three loaded 15-round magazines, a machete, knives, a tactical tomahawk, handcuffs, and a hat with a New York Police Department logo in his car. Law enforcement later found an AR-15 rifle, a .40-caliber handgun, high-capacity magazines, and ammunition in a search of his residence.
Fruchter is charged with unlawful possession of weapons, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, possession of magazines capable of holding in excess of 10 rounds, and possession of handcuffs.
