Brick Township luring suspicions losing credibility, police say
Reports of a man trying to entice kids into a car at the Drum Point Sports Complex in Brick Township last week lead police down a dead end.
Authorities say they identified and spoke to the man described by a phone tipster as accosting children on April 11, and to date have not heard from anyone approached directly. They've concluded that nothing of concern occurred.
An anonymous caller told police that the individual was asking youngsters where they lived, if they needed rides, and if they wanted cigarettes. Investigators were able to identify the subject based on the caller's description.
Extra police patrols continue at the complex. If you see anything unusual, you're still encouraged to call Brick Township Police at 732-262-1100.
