St. Amand was linked to the crime through physical evidence and statements to the police. Following arrest and processing, St. Amand was released from custody on a summons.
The investigation is continuing, and anyone with information is asked to contact Neptune Detective Lieutenant Jeff Force at 732-988-8000.
The Warrington overlooks Wesley Lake at 22 Lake Avenue. It provides room and board for veterans and physically challenged people.
