Former Manalapan Mayor Andrew Lucas put up liens on two properties this afternoon to cover the $500,000 bond which was a condition of his release from federal custody. Lucas was arrested Friday on 11 federal charges last week, including wire fraud, identity theft and providing false information to the IRS and FBI. U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas Arpert gave Lucas the weekend to come up with $500,000 in assets to secure is release.
The properties are Lucas’s home at 24 Iron Ore Road, Manalapan and 351 Asbury Road in Howell. The Howell property is own by Timothy Murphy, according to APP.com’s Data Universe.
In addition to the $500,000 bail, Lucas is subject to home confinement and electronic monitoring. He surrendered his weapons and firearms ID card. He is prohibited from leaving the state of New Jersey.
