A Monmouth County man has been charged with armed robbery and weapons offenses after a police stand-off that lasted more than 12 hours.

Before 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Neptune Township police responded to a pharmacy on the 1200 block of Corlies Avenue for a reported robbery.

The store clerk said that a man with a handgun had demanded money and took off with several hundred dollars, according to Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond Santiago.

Officers tracked 34-year-old Jeffrey Migliore to a nearby home on 11th Avenue, where the stand-off unfolded.

Local, county and state levels of law enforcement all responded to the scene, as neighboring homes and properties were evacuated as a precaution.

Migliore, who has past convictions for burglary and heroin possession, eventually surrendered peacefully around 10:30 p.m.

The Ocean Township resident was arrested and police recovered a handgun from the scene.

Migliore remained in custody pending a detention hearing in Monmouth County Superior Court.

The prosecutor was among those applauding the peaceful outcome of negotiations.

“That this extraordinarily delicate and complicated situation was resolved with no injuries or loss of life to any civilians or members of law enforcement was no accident – it was the result of very carefully planned, coordinated, and well-executed actions of dozens upon dozens of members of local, county, and state agencies, all working closely together in close quarters and under tremendous pressure,” Santiago said in a written release.
