A Jackson man has learned that after his 2018 Dodge Durano was stolen around 4:29 am outside his residence on Mill Pond Road Monday, it was involved in a motor vehicle crash in Newark.
He told Jackson Police he received a Ring alert on his phone and then saw two men walked up his driveway, get in his car and then drive away.
The key fob was left inside the vehicle overnight.
Newark Police informed Jackson Police that the car had been impounded following a crash.
About an hour later on Monday, around 5:02 am, Freehold Township Police told Jackson Police that they found a stolen 2013 Maserati, also involved in a motor vehicle crash (then abandoned) which turned out to be stolen from a driveway on Mill Pond Road in Jackson.
The key fob was left inside the vehicle overnight when it was stolen.
The suspects who stole the Maserati also went in two other unlocked vehicles in the driveway and looted $2,000 in cash.
Around 7:25 am on Monday, Jackson Police began investigating a stolen 2018 Audi A5 that had been in a driveway, with the key fob inside, on Plasner Court.
This vehicle has not been reported returned.
