Brick Woman Brought Gun, Drugs into Ocean County Courthouse; Released

TOMS RIVER-A woman was caught bringing a handgun into the Ocean County Courthouse in Downtown Toms River on Tuesday.  Ocean County Sheriff Michael Mastronardy said his diligent Sheriff’s officers caught 56 year old Brick Township resident Janice Vizzone trying to take the .22 caliber pistol into the courthouse.

She was apprehended and charged with unlawful possession of a handgun and possession of controlled dangerous substance (CDS).

Mastronardy dispelled a rumor circulating that the woman was intent on using the gun against a judge.

“That never happened,” Mastronardy said. “The gun also wasn’t loaded.”

Court records show Vizzone was immediately released by the court without bail shortly after she was booked by Ocean County Sheriff’s Officers at the Courthouse due to New Jersey’s new bail reform system.
