Burnt out portable toilet at Monmouth Beach, NJ park


MONMOUTH BEACH – There was only a puddle of melted plastic left after someone torched a portable toilet in a park early Sunday morning.

Monmouth Beach Police said vandals threw a desk chair into the Griffin Street Park washroom around 1:15 a.m. and then turned it on. The fire also caused minor damage to a nearby canoe.

The park along Manhasset Creek includes basketball courts, tennis courts, two baseball fields and a playground.

Acting Chief Daniel McManus told New Jersey 101.5 that the case is currently under investigation and no charges have been filed yet.

“Floating objects” have washed up on Monmouth Beach on at least two occasions this summer after heavy rains overwhelmed sewer systems along the New York coast and in New York. Several syringes and needles were part of the waste in July. The Monmouth County Regional Health Commission has twice led the effort to clean up the waste.
