Week in Review

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News week in review.

Hurricane Sandy came into the area Monday, wreaking havoc throughout the week.

The storm was at its peak late Monday into Tuesday morning, and left behind a path of destruction.

Trees and power lines across the area were ripped from the ground, causing over 400,000 people in the region to be without power.

The storm also destroyed parts of the Jersey shore and left parts of New York City under water.

It also claimed more than 100 lives.

During the storm on Monday night, Allentown Police found themselves investigating a homicide involving a father and son.

Police charged Roy Tarboro, 86, with killing his son Rickey, 42.

It happened in the 700 block of East Allen Street around 6:40pm Monday.

Police said Ricky was found outside the home.

The coroner said he died from a gunshot wound to the body.

His father was taken into custody a short time later.

On Wednesday, Easton Police got a little help from officers in New York City to make an arrest in a homicide case.

Naheem Adams was arrested in Brooklyn in connection to the shooting death of George Jeter.

Police said they found Adams near his mother's apartment.

Jeter was gunned down in July near 14th and Butler streets in Easton.

Adams will be arraigned in New York, then extradited back to Northampton County.

Hurricane Sandy left many people in search of gas, and it wasn't pretty at times.

People from New York and New Jersey made their way to Pennsylvania to fuel up after many gas stations were left in the dark, or out of gas.

We found plenty of stations backed up with folks ready to fuel up.

AAA estimated 60 percent of gas stations in New Jersey were shut down Friday because of the storm.

And some drivers said it was easier to drive a longer distance than to wait in long lines.

Governor Chris Christie put some restrictions in place in the Garden State by allowing motorists to fuel up every other day if necessary.
