JACKSON-The Jackson Police Department is seeking information to locate a suspect charged in a recent burglary and theft in the township.

The agency is seeking information to locate a 37 year old male suspect who is identified as Christopher DeMarsico (pictured), with a last known address in Newark, NJ.

On Friday August 31, 2018, Police Officer Darin McClain responded to a residence on Bittersweet Drive on the report of a burglary. It was reported that the 37 year old male suspect, who was known to the victim, arrived at the residence sometime after 3:00 am in the morning after being contacted by the resident. Upon the suspect’s arrival the two sat on the porch speaking as the suspect was not invited into the residence because the victim intended on leaving with him, when the victim reportedly ingested GHB and ended up passing out. Upon waking at approximately 7:00 am, it was discovered that multiple rooms in the residence had been entered and items consisting of cash (paper and coins), antiques, sports memorabilia, jewelry, personal identification, credit cards, electronics and a suitcase had been taken from the home. The stolen property was valued in excess of $8,000.00.

According to drugs.com, GHB or Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (C4H8O3) is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant that is commonly referred to as a “club drug” or “date rape” drug. GHB is abused by teens and young adults at bars, parties, clubs and “raves” (all night dance parties), and is often placed in alcoholic beverages. Euphoria, increased sex drive, and tranquility are reported positive effects of GHB abuse. Negative effects may include sweating, loss of consciousness, nausea, hallucinations, amnesia, and coma, among other side effects.

Common or street names for GHB include Liquid X, Liquid ecstasy, Georgia home boy, Oop, Gamma-oh, Grievous bodily harm, Mils, G, Liquid G, Fantasy

The investigation, which is ongoing, resulted in complaint warrants being issued for Mr. DeMarsico for burglary and theft. He also has outstanding warrants out of Englishtown and Ocean Township (Monmouth County).

Anyone with information on his location is asked to contact Jackson Police Detective John Rodriguez at 732-928-1111.
