Hours-long standoff at Sussex County home leads to arrest

MONTAGUE TOWNSHIP, (Sussex County) – A 40-year-old man was arrested after a standoff with police for several hours Monday, according to New Jersey State Police spokesperson Sergeant Philip Curry.

On May 1, at 9:06 p.m., New Jersey Sate Police responded to a Lake Shore Drive residence in Montague Township for a dispute between a landlord and a tenant, Curry said.

While attempting to make contact with the tenant, who was identified as Anthony Fedd Jr. of Montague, he allegedly told troopers that he had a firearm and would use it on them, Curry said.

Troopers evacuated nearby tenants and began communicating with Fedd Jr. After several hours, entry was made into his residence and he was arrested without further incident, Curry said.

Fedd Jr. was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, unlawful use of a weapon, and terroristic threats. He was then lodged in the Morris County Jail, Curry said.
