Thefts and burglaries in different sections of Lakewood Monday have police on the prowl for suspects.
Authorities say landscaper Alan Siesel of Cedar Row reported the disappearance of a Husqvarna 125B leaf blower from his trailer at about 8:26 AM.
He estimates the value at about $200.
Just after 3 PM the same day, Maria Ochoa of the Golfview Condominium Complex reported a burglary in her dwelling, telling police that someone made off with a black Nintendo Wii.
Whoever pilfered the game box left the accessories behind.
She told investigators that a first-floor window was the entry point to her unit near Joe Parker Road between 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM.
Members of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office were called in to collect evidence.
