No sooner do sweltering temperatures arrive in Toms River, than some beat-the-heat items are reported stolen.

Police say the Shenandoah Homeowners Association reported the units missing from their Mount Hood Lane headquarters Saturday. An investigating officer determined that they were taken some time during the week.

Also during the steamy weekend, three kayaks were taken from a house on Route 35 in the township. One is described as a yellow "Ocean" model, 11 feet long. The second is an olive "Native" model, 11.6 feet in length. The third is a black "Big Stick" model, measuring 10.6 feet in length.

Also taken were an "Ainsworth" and an "Aquasport" paddle.

Finally, a Manchester 71-year-old reported his Cobra golf clubs and bag were stolen from the Bay Lea Golf Course last Friday, between 12:30 and 1:00 pm. The victim told police they were lifted from the course's outdoor rack.

Police have no clear leads on any of the incidents. They're asking anyone with information to reach Captain Bruce Burgess: 732-349-0150, extension 1200.
