Brick Police Investigating Daytime Burglaries

Two reported this week, cops say

Police are investigating two daytime burglaries – one in the Herbertsville section and one in the Lions Head South community – that occurred this week.

In the first of the two burglaries, which occurred Tuesday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at a residence on 5th Avenue, a resident told police someone had entered the home and stole a watch and digital camera, according to Capt. John Rein.

In that incident, Rein said the burglar was believed to have entered the home through a rear window.

The second burglary occurred on Wednesday between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

In that buglary, an Ashford Drive resident came home and found the front door kicked in and immediately called police, Rein said. Jewelry and cash were found to have been stolen from the home.

Brick Police are advising residents to immediately report any suspicious or unfamiliar persons or vehicles at neighbors' residences when they are aware that they are not at home, Rein said.

Anyone with information about these recent burglaries is asked to contact the Brick Township Police Investigations Division at 732-262-1120.

Kids on opiates - it's an epidemic in your town - which is resulting in a rise in petty crime like burglary, purse snatching

The thing to remember, friends, is that burglaries over here in this day and age are not about robbing "that safe of jewels and pieces of art." It's mostly a break in, quick in and out with something easy to get, easy to carry, and valuable enough to sell for only 1 hit of drugs. When you think about it, they will go after what's in your medicine cabinet before anything in your rec room or living room. I've read comments above about shooting intruders and stuff. I too have firearms that could "stop" intruders and the views and frustrations of fellow residents in our area are understandable. However, speaking personally, it shouldn't come to that extreme in our area. The problem should be mitigated and steps should be taken to avoid any violence. However, from what I've seen personally, that is easier said than done. You see, the Sheriff's Office and local PDs offer and support Neighborhood Watch programs that are proven to curb crimes and clean up neighborhoods of these situations. Unfortunately, the real problem I've experienced ends up to the many people that may live next door or border our property, or just a few houses down (or all of them) that want nothing to do with us in the first place...never mind help secure our neighborhood. They just want to mind their own business, detail their cars weekly, and do their own thing without preparing for anything.
