The councilman maintains that the needle did not belong to him.

According to the Asbury Park Press report:

‘”I’m going to resign today. I don’t want the town involved in anything like this. I’ve been a very good councilman. I’ve done everything I can for the town,” Merriken said in an interview with the Press just after noon.

But the written resignation never arrived at town hall. A few hours later, Merriken — on the advice of his attorney, he said — called the Press and said he’d decided not to quit after all.’
