    Trader Joe's, the gourmet, discount grocer, will be the 14th in New Jersey.

    A gourmet discount grocer with a near cult following is coming to Cherry Hill.

    Trader Joe's -- with products ranging from shrimp gyozas to crunch dried honey crisp apples to salted caramel-flavored hot cocoa mix -- is coming to Towne Place at Garden State Park.

    The iconic grocer joins several other big-box retailers including Home Goods and T.J. Maxx in an expansion of an already bustling retail mecca of mixed use on more than 600 acres formed from a former horse racing track. 

    A proposal delivered to the township planning board in March included renderings of the new offerings as retail development continues to outpace residential on the crossroads property along Route 70, a strip that stretches connects the Jersey Shore with Philadelphia.

    The development is already billed as "560,000 square feet of who's who large-box national retailers and restaurants" by its owners Jack Morris and Joe Marino of Piscataway-based M+M Reality Partners. Just doors down is a Wegman's.

    Trader Joe's is just the latest in crowning achievements for the signature property. A Costco is also scheduled to spring up and M+M sued a gaming company partnership which controls Freehold Raceway last month for a shot at opening a sports betting facility on the property, one of only five outside of Atlantic City cut in on a sports betting industry that could overtake Las Vegas within the next decade, analysts have said.

    Meanwhile, the plans submitted in March and approved in April by the township planning board call for the Trader Joe's to rise along Garden State Park Boulevard, a thoroughfare that runs along a sprawling Home Depot and will also lead to the new Costco.

    Local officials are giddy about what happens next.

    "We are thrilled at the news of these new retailers coming to Cherry Hill," township Mayor Chuck Cahn said Tuesday. "They are a great complement to the existing line of retail offerings at the Garden State Park and along the entire stretch of Haddonfield Road."

    Malls are dying, but not this one. It's opening 7 new stores

    A Whole Foods Market opened in Cherry Hill in 2014 less than two miles away from the new Trader Joe's location. The health-conscience chains are often located near each other and share the same shoppers.

    A request for comment from Trader Joe's was not immediately returned Tuesday. An opening date for the new Cherry Hill store has not been announced. 

    This will be the 14th Trader Joe's in New Jersey and will join more than 400 nationwide. It will be the third in this region along with locations in the Marlton section of Evesham, less than seven miles away, and Center City Philadelphia.

    Waiting for a letter that never arrived? It might have ended up dumped by a U.S. Postal Service worker along a South Jersey street.

    Waiting for a letter that never arrived? It might have ended up dumped by a U.S. Postal Service worker along a South Jersey street.

    A Facebook photo shared more than 3,000 times shows a dozen mail bins stuffed with items discarded in the 3900 block of River Road in Pennsauken.

    The mail, discovered Sunday, was dated Aug. 8 and out for delivery from the Roxborough Station Post Office in Philadelphia, according to Special Agent Scott Balfour, with the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, which investigates misconduct in the agency.

    Agents tracked down the employee who threw out the mail, but learned the person resigned from the postal service Sept. 8, according to Balfour.

    "We do not anticipate any further action against this individual," Balfour said Wednesday. "The Roxborough Station Post Office is going to deliver the mail."

    Authorities did not identify the worker or offer a possible motive for the bizarre incident.

    The photo, shared by Facebook user Positive Energy Bennett, had more than 200 comments.

    The bandit approached women who were walking alone outside banks, and threatened each with a knife, police said.

    UPDATE: Cherry Hill police said Williams was arrested Thursday morning.

    Police say they have identified the knife-wielding man who robbed two women of cash as they left banks in Cherry Hill Tuesday.

    Township police didn't mention a motive, but one of his tattoos could be a hint: He has 'Money On My Mind' tattooed on his left forearm, police said.

    Brandon Williams, 36, of Cooper Landing Road in Cherry Hill is now facing charges including robbery, theft and weapons charges. A warrant has issued for his arrest, but he remained at large Wednesday afternoon, police said.

    The robberies occurred within 40 minutes of one another on Tuesday afternoon, police said. In both cases, Williams was seen hanging out outside the banks, before he approached each woman as she walked out alone, threatened each with a knife and stole their cash, police said.

    The first incident occurred at 1:38 p.m. at the Bank of America at 22 West Route 70 and the second was at 2:20 p.m. at the TD Bank at 357 North Kings Highway, police said. He fled both incidents in a white Kia Optima.

    Police are asking people to be on the lookout for Williams, but not to approach him because he is considered armed and dangerous.

    They described him as 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. In addition to his "Money On My Mind" tattoo, he has the name "MYER" tattooed on the left side of his neck. He may be driving the White Kia Optima with New Jersey plates reading E63KAT.

    Anyone who has seen Williams or has information about his whereabouts is asked to contact Cherry Hill Police headquarters at 856-488-7828 or Detective Rich Nelms at 856-432-8827. Anonymous tips can also be sent to tips@cherryhillpolice.com.

    Prosecutors said the woman, Diana Haikova, was found dead in her New York apartment in December.

    Note: A spokesperson for the family of the rapper Lil Peep disputes TMZ's reporting that Michael Jones was associated with the rapper, and the outlet has since updated its original reporting. This story has been updated accordingly.

    A Camden man identified by federal authorities as an emo rap fan was arrested by agents Wednesday for allegedly providing the drugs behind a 29-year-old woman's fatal overdose.

    Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, in a statement, said Michael Jones, 24, faces a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison -- and a maximum of life -- if convicted of supplying the heroin and fentanyl that led to the death of Diana Haikova.

    Investigators from the New York Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration determined Jones had provided Haikova with the drugs on Dec. 5, 2017, two days before she was found dead in her New York apartment, prosecutors said.

    "This investigation led us into the underbelly of emo rap and its glorification of opioid use," James J. Hunt, the DEA special agent in charge in New York, said in a statement. "Today, a team of DEA agents and NYPD Detectives arrested Michael Jones, known as the 'realnewjerzeydevil' for allegedly distributing a fatal dose of fentanyl mixed with heroin."

    Hunt did not elaborate in his statement how Jones was involved in the emo rap scene.

    Jones allegedly distributed heroin to other people after Haikova's death.

    Prosecutors said Jones was arrested in Miami, Florida, and is expected to make his first appearance in federal court there Thursday.

    It was not immediately clear whether Jones had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

    Thankfully, no one was hurt.

    The driver of a two-door sedan who jumped the curb Thursday evening, began to climb an electric pole guy-wire ending up almost vertical, has certainly had better days.

    Berlin Borough officers responded to the wreck near the Hillcrest Shopping Center shortly after 3 a.m., according to Berlin Fire Co. No.1 which also responded.

    "HAPPY FRIDAY. No, this is not a magic trick," a post on the police department's Facebook page said Friday. It was accompanied by a picture that almost looked surreal of the blue sedan resting on its back bumper, wheels off the ground strung on the pole support wire. Both the car and the shopping strip landmark sign were bathed in a blue light.

    The driver was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, police said. Requests for further comment were not immediately returned Friday.

    No word on how the wayward driver reached the ground after his car went vertical. No injuries were reported.

    Ryan Albert of Marlton was last seen on Thursday, National Park Service officials say.

    Authorities in Colorado are searching for a New Jersey man who may be missing after a planned hike in Longs Peak area of Rocky Mountain National Park.

    National Park Service officials say a search team was deployed Saturday morning in an attempt to locate Ryan Albert, 30, of Marlton.

    Rangers had been contacted by Denver police Friday by a family member of Albert's who told them he was overdue from a hike in the mountainous park, according to a release from the NPS.

    The man's rental car was found at the Longs Peak trailhead Friday afternoon. Park officials said it was unclear what Albert's destination or route was, but it was believed he was attempting a climb at Longs Peak on Thursday.

    On Saturday, the NPS said, members of Rocky Mountain National Park's Search and Rescue Team began searching the Longs Peak area including the Boulder Field, the Keyhole Route, The Loft, Chasm Cirque, North Longs Peak and Boulder Brook in the park.

    The forecast Saturday in the Longs Peak area called for freezing temperatures and severe and unpredictable weather including snow, hail, sleet, thunder and lightning, according to officials. 

    Albert was last seen leaving the Denver area early Thursday morning wearing dark clothes and a backpack, officials said.

    Vote now for your favorite downtown in Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties.

    Everyone likes strolling around downtown, observing the sights and sounds of the area, along with the energy it can bring.

    There are great downtowns all up and down the state, but a number of downtown areas in South Jersey bring a small town feel while providing experiences found in some of the biggest urban centers in the country. (Besides, aren't you tired of hearing how much better North Jersey is compared to South Jersey?)

    As we recently announced, we are looking to find the best downtown in New Jersey. What qualifies? Our definition is broad -- downtowns are fun sections of town where people like to spend time. And, they've got to offer something special that keeps people coming back.

    For the South region, you have a chance to vote for the best downtown areas in Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties. Now is your chance for your voice to be heard. Below this section is a poll with the list of downtown areas in the five-county area comprised by reader nominations, emails, and Facebook post mentions. The voting will remain open until Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 9 a.m. You can vote once a day.

    The winners will move on the "Terrific 10," then to the "Fantastic Five," and finally the designation of the being the best downtown in New Jersey.

    Just like March Madness, we know that some cities will be on the proverbial "bubble," there may be a Cinderella downtown or two, and there will be a lot of pride and cheering for your favorite downtown area to win this distinction.

    Good luck to all of the downtowns.
