Manchester Police arrest a prolific burglary suspect who prompted an advisory to residents in several Crestwood Village communities. 26-year-old Township resident Jason Clancy of Mill Road was taken into custody in his home following a two-month multi-agency investigation and charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

Police Captain Lisa Parker says the probe involved over 60 retirement homes in the Whiting section where a third were entered. She says while inside, Clancy allegedly made off with money and jewelry but much of the proceeds were recovered in his home.

Clancy was transported to the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail with no 10% option. Parker says the investigation is ongoing and additional charges are forthcoming.

Assisting with the investigation were members of the Ocean County Sheriff's Department CIU & K9 units, the Toms River Township Police Department and the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Craig Beaulieu of the Manchester Township Police Department at 732-657-2009 Ext. 4205.
