Re.: Paulsboro brothers sentenced in shootout


Anthony Vanblarcom  (DOB 10/21/85), of Paulsboro,  and  his brother Lazzaro Vanblarcom  (DOB  8/15/84), also of Paulsboro, were sentenced today  (2/2/18) on weapons possession charges stemming from a 7/14/17 shooting in the borough.


In the shooting on Washington Street, Anthony Vanblarcom sustained a leg wound and another male had gunshot wounds to the ankle and hip.  Several handguns were seized during executions of search warrants after the incident.


The Vanblarcoms pleaded guilty 12/1/17 to second-degree charges of unlawful possession of a weapon. Anthony entered pleas to two possession counts.


In accordance with negotiated pleas, Superior Court Judge M. Christine Allen-Jackson sentenced Anthony Vanblarcom to six years in New Jersey state prison and Lazzaro Vanblarcom to seven years, saying imprisonment was necessary “for the adequate protection of society.”


In the same incident,  a charge of possession of a weapon by a convicted person is still pending against a third defendant, Dewayne Demby  (DOB 1/4/89), of Woodbury.
