Lakewood Man Charged with Sunday Pizzeria Break-In
A Lakewood 39-year-old is in the Ocean County Jail, accused of smashing his way into a township pizzeria and carting off three charity donation boxes containing cash Sunday morning.
Police say they charged George Reid with burglary and theft Monday after one of the officers watching surveillance video from Circa Pizzeria recognized him.
According to police, Reid was observed using a brick to crash through a display window of the Cedarbridge Avenue business and leaving with the boxes in hand.
He was arrested in front of the VIP Chinese Restaurant on Main Street. A judge in Toms River set bail at $5,000 with no option for release on payment of 10 percent.
