One Quad Stolen, Another Recovered in Toms River

While Toms River police probe the weekend theft of an ATV, they’re searching for the owner of another that they found.

According to Police Chief Mike Mastronardy, two officers were taking a statement from the victim in the Silver Ridge complex early Sunday after the initial call was placed around 4:00 AM. A witness told them that he spotted three men pushing a quad through the complex, and that two bolted away when he confronted them but the third pulled a knife from his waistband before running off.

While the discussion was under way, says Mastronardy, officers watch two suspects driving a quad presumed stolen toward River Terrace.

They recovered and impounded a black-and-red Honda ATV valued at $8,000 that was left at the complex, and are trying to find the owner.

Toms River police are also probing a weekend break-in at a doctor’s office. Mastronardy says that the office at 1749 Hooper Avenue was looted of about $400, a gray metal cash drawer, and a Dell laptop.

In an unrelated incident, whoever took a car from a southern Ocean County rental agency and left it in Toms River is so far eluding the law.

Mastronardy says that a Pleasant Plains resident reported a suspicious vehicle on Monroe Avenue to police Sunday night. Investigators determined that it was the same car reported stolen from an Enterprise lot in Manahawkin around 5:00 that afternoon, and parked in Pleasant Plains about four hours later. They found the license plates in the car’s back seat.
