The Fanwood police blotter gives his name as Olivier Blanco. Not sure why Patch redacted the name: "on 10/05/2012 @ 9:51 AM a resident in the 100 block of Martine Ave. came home to see a suspicious person in her driveway. When this person saw the homeowner he fled on a bicycle. The homeowner called the Police who checked the area for this person. The homeowner reported items are missing from her house. The suspect was located in Scotch Plains with the homeowners property in his possession. He was arrested and charged with burglary and theft. Bail was set at $15,000.00. The defendant is a Olivier Blanco 23 year old male from Scotch Plains. "
