A Mount Laurel police officer sits in his car on Gramercy Way, opposite the home of Edward Cagney Mathews, who was arrested for bias crimes against his neighbors.

A Mount Laurel man was taken into custody Monday for racial intimidation, but the impact of his actions remains on the condo community where he lives.

From the New Jersey Desk, WHYY’s Kenneth Burns reports that Edward Mathews has long targeted residents of color in the Essex Place Community.
