Prosecutors allege the suspects, in most cases, sought money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In many cases, prosecutors say they a lso applied for funds f rom a Sandy relief pro- g ram funded by Housing and Urban Development, low-interest disaster loans from the Small Business Administration, or assistance provided by the state’s Human Services Department. The amount of the f unds obtained ranged from $32,759 to $174,051. I f convicted, the sus- p ects would face up to 10 y ears in prison and fines of up to $150,000. 6dead puppies found near fight PHILADELPHIA - A humane official says he’s found six dead puppies in a trash can near a suspected dog-fighting site in Philadelphia. George Bengal, the d irector of enforcement for the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, says he found the dead puppies and a live adult pit bull outside what he b elieves is a stash house for a dog-fighting crew. B engal says he is hop- i ng the gruesome disc overy can now help him get the Germanton house boarded up or torn down. Another dead dog w as found inside the h ome. Phila. police: Man t hreatened officer PHILADELPHIA - P hiladelphia police have j ailed a man they say threatened to “blow an officer’s head off” before the man could be subdued with a stun gun. T wenty-year-old Shar eef Haynes is jailed on a ggravated assault, ter- roristic threats and other charges for the confrontation Wednesday e vening with Officer Mic hael Edwards. P olice say Haynes walked up and knocked on the window of Edwards’ car and the offi- c er asked if Haynes needed help. Instead, E dwards made the threat then tried to hold the door shut. Edwards called for help and eventually got out of the car. That’s w hen officers say Edwards pulled his hands o ut of his pants and made a shooting gesture, but didn’t have a g un. Veronica Haynes s ays her son has mental p roblems, and she’s thankful he was subdued and not shot. Gag order denied in 1991murder case NEW BRUNSWICK - A judge has denied a gag order sought by prose- c utors against the lawyer of a mother charged in the 1991slaying of her 5 -year-old son in New Jersey. The judge on Thurs- d ay denied the motion in the case of Michelle Lodzinski, who has pleaded n ot guilty to killing Timothy Wiltsey in 1991. The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office had sought a gag order against attorney Gerald Krovatin for statements he gave to The Associated Press about the case f or an article published e arlier this month. They said Krovatin’s state- m ents could have taint- e d the jury. Krovatin said a gag order would have violated his First Amendment rights. Lodzinski has maintained that Wiltsey disappeared from a Sayre- v ille carnival. His remains were found about ayear later in Edison. —Associated Press REGION ROUNDUP
