A Mahwah woman has been arrested and charged with firearm-related offenses after shooting at her former neighbor’s car in Waldwick Wednesday morning, police say.

Waldwick police arrested Mahwah resident Megan Dzugay, 40, for an “isolated targeted incident” that left multiple bullet holes in the windows and doorframe of a Black Lexus GX 460 SUV parked at her former neighbor’s house on 56 Grove St.

Ring doorbell footage from a neighbor appears to show her walking down the sidewalk before firing off several rounds that morning.

Dzugay was taken into custody Wednesday evening at her Mahwah home, police say. She is charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and criminal mischief resulting in property damage.

“Waldwick is a great community. One thing about it is that we're all from here, we grew up here and we live here. Our neighbors stick together during times like this. We received several phone calls from neighbors. Everybody offering to help. Lots of surveillance video and Ring doorbell cameras. It helped us make quick work of the case,” said Lt. Troy Seifert.

Police say they have never been called to the neighborhood before and that there was no prior criminal record for Dzugay.

The motive for the shooting is still under investigation.
