Jackson Man Held in Attempted Toms River Store Robbery

A $349 food mixer will cost a Jackson 29-year-old considerably more if police prove he tried to take it out of a Toms River department store without paying.

According to information from the office of Toms River PD Chief Mitchell Little, officers responded to a robbery report at Boscov’s in the Ocean County Mall Thursday evening by store loss-prevention officers.

They told police said that Michael Truszkowski tried carting off a Kitchen-Aid mixer without paying – and that as a security worker struggled to keep him from escaping, Truszkowski slugged the guard. He was caught by another store employee.

Police say Truszkowski was charged with robbery as well as with possession of a hypodermic syringe and drug paraphernalia. He was placed in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, with bail set at $50,000.
