    A neighbor brought the boy home, according to a witness

    A 43-year-old man driving in Lakewood on Saturday evening had to stop and block traffic on busy street when he found a baby crawling across the road.

    Cory Cannon saw the boy making his way across Joe Parker Road around 6 p.m. while on his way to work, according to a post and photos he shared on Facebook that quickly received thousands of shares and comments.

    The Eatontown resident got out of his work vehicle to stop traffic and watched a neighbor return the baby home, police said. 

    Cannon then notified police, providing them with the address.

    Lakewood police said Monday that the infant may have scurried out through a door left open by an older sibling. The family of the child was unaware he fled until the neighbor returned him, police said.

    Police are still investigating. The state division of Child Protection and Permanency is also involved, police said.

    The ride was held in recognition of the 40 New Jersey men still missing

    Roughly 1,000 motorcyclists rode through parts of Union, Middlesex and Monmouth counties on Sunday in honor of the 40 New Jersey residents who are still unaccounted for from the Vietnam War.

    The 23rd annual Ride for Freedom, presented by the New Jersey chapter of the Rolling Thunder motorcycle group, started at Warinanco Park in Roselle and ended at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.

    "It's an opportunity to bring awareness to those men and women in New Jersey and throughout the country who are still missing from the previous wars," said Charles Webster, the Rolling Thunder New Jersey chapter president.

    The 24-mile route took riders through the streets of Roselle, Rahway, Linden, Woodbridge, Perth Amboy, South Amboy and Old Bridge before hitting the Garden State Parkway southbound to Holmdel. Some of the riders wore T-shirts with the names of the 40 men still missing from the Vietnam War. 

    Webster said next year's rally will honor several dozen veterans of World War II.

    The Manasquan man was charged with causing a death while operating a motor vehicle with a suspended driver's license, police said.

    A 57-year-old man was charged Tuesday in the death of a pedestrian who was killed crossing Route 71 North in Brielle.

    James S. McCaughn, of Manasquan, was charged with causing a death while operating a motor vehicle with a suspended driver's license along with two motor vehicle violations, Brielle police Lt. Gary Olsen said.

    The accident occurred about 12:40 a.m. as the victim was crossing the highway at Bradley Avenue, Olsen said.

    A resident nearby heard a crash and called police. McCaughn also called 911, Olsen said.

    The name of the victim, described only as an adult male, was not released. He died at the scene, police said.

    "We're still trying to contact next of kin," Olsen said.

    Olsen said blood samples were taken from the driver as part of the investigation.

    McCaughn was released on a summons to appear in court, Olsen said.

    The Newark man was acquitted of firearms charges and arson

    A jury on Tuesday convicted a Newark man for his role in a fatal home invasion that ended with a Freehold couple's home in flames.

    A jury found Richard Busby, 61, of Newark, guilty of felony murder, attempted murder and robbery for the July 31, 2011, incident that left 41-year-old Michael Conway dead and his girlfriend having to escape a burning home.

    The jury found Busby not guilty of unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose and aggravated arson.

    Authorities say in the early morning hours, Busby and an accomplice, Jeffery Mayhue, broke into a Jackson Mills Road home shared by Conway and his girlfriend.

    Conway and the woman were held at gunpoint, bound with zip-ties while the two men searched the home for money and marijuana, according to authorities.

    Conway was able to break free, but was fatally shot following a struggle with the intruders, authorities said.

    Busby and Mayhue then set the home on fire. The woman was able to run out of the home.

    Busby was charged in October 2011. He was found guilty after a month-long trial.

    He faces 30 years to life in prison when he is sentenced.

    Mayhue pleaded guilty to armed robbery and felony murder and was sentenced to 30 years in prison in September 2016.

    Two other men - Elliss Goodson, 41, of Neptune, and Ranu Sinha, 39, of Freehold - have also been charged in connection with the incident. They are awaiting sentencing.

    Comedian Jon Stewart surprised construction workers working at the Basie Center for the Arts with lunch.

    They might have been expecting an overworked server or a sweaty chef -- but that's not who they got.

    Jon Stewart surprised construction workers on their lunch break Wednesday afternoon when the comedian was behind the counter, working the window of the Shore Good Eats food truck. 

    Parked outside of the Basie Center of the Arts, the former host of "The Daily Show" served up sandwiches and cookies to the construction crews that were working on the $26 million expansion of the arts center building. 

    The comedian is not only a patron of New Jersey arts, but he is also a Garden State resident, and own homes in Red Bank and Middletown.

    "Proudly joining my friend and constituent Jon Stewart at lunch today at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank where he served lunch to construction workers on site to make expansion a reality," Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna said in a Facebook post. 

    Stewart's appearance and the food truck were set up as a 'thank you' to the workers as they prepare to install the final beam on the project next month, Basie CEO Adam Philipson told the Red Bank Green. Stewart also helped raise $50,000 for the theater with a June appearance, the report said.

    Stewart signed the final beam of the construction project, which is expected to be put into place later this fall, according to the Basie Center's social media.

    We didn't even give them a second thought.

    I recall a point made in the 1970s that was meant to illustrate how quickly technology advanced in the 20th century - how someone who was 10 years old when man first achieved powered flight watched man walk on the moon at age 76.

    Fact is, if you look at any two-thirds-of-a-century stretch since the 1700s, you'll see just as great a leap in technology for mankind. Space flight, while amazing, doesn't necessarily supersede other advancements of humankind in industry, inventions or ideas.

    For example, on that spacecraft that landed on the moon, there was a guidance computer that had, according to, exactly 64 kilobytes of memory and a microprocessor speed of 0.043 megahertz. The latest iPhone can be purchased with 512 GIGAbytes of memory, and if my math is right, that's 536,870,912 kilobytes. Its microprocessor operates at 2.49 GIGAhertz and let's just say that's the difference between walking and the speed of light.

    And that was in 49 years.

    As time flies by, it's easy to forget things that were matter-of-fact parts of our lives in the 1960s and 1970s, when Apollo missions were going to the moon with those teensy computers. Here's another installment of things that may have slipped from our memory ... and I don't know about you, but my memory isn't measured in giga, mega or kilobytes - it just bites.
