Detective Glenn Lucas, badge number 218, served for 25 years on patrol, the K-9 unit, and with the detective bureau of the Toms River Police Department, said Sheriff Michael Mastronardy, who used to be the police chief here.

“Detective Lucas was one of finest police officers to serve the people of Toms River,” read a statement from the sheriff’s office. “Sheriff Mastronardy proudly served with him for 25 years. Most importantly Officer Lucas was devoted to his wife and children. God Bless 218!”

The Toms River Township Council held a moment of silence in memory of the officer at their latest meeting.
