Two driving while intoxicated charges were among the offenses reported by Manchester police officers last week, according to a log of police activity released by Capt. Lisa Parker.
The first of those charges came on Tuesday, Oct. 16, when Steven R. Chambers, 31, of Manchester was stopped by police on Route 70 near Route 571. Chambers was charged with DWI by Patrolman Joseph Hankins and released on a summons, Parker said.
Days later, Bayville resident Jacquelyn A. Elmore, 29, was charged with DWI after coming to a stop on Leawood Avenue in Toms River. Patrolman Joseph Fastige issued the Friday, Oct. 19 charge, and Elmore was released on a summons, according to the captain.
Other items on last week's police blotter include:

Manchester officers also made five outstanding warrant arrests. Of those, one posted bail, one was taken to the Ocean County Jail, two were released on their own recognizance and one was transferred to the custody of the Ocean County Sheriff's Department, according to Parker.
