To date, the Stafford Township Police Department reports that 23 vehicle-related thefts have taken place, along with dozens of stolen items taken from unlocked motor vehicles in the Long Beach Island, Barnegat, and Stafford area alone. They're working hard to find those responsible but want to make sure you're aware. "Don't be the next victim" they warn.
A few minutes ago, Barnegat Police reported that they apprehended four people and charged them with theft and conspiracy to commit theft of motor vehicles in Barnegat. They say it was a team effort that also featured police departments in Stafford, Atlantic City, the Ocean County Sheriff's Department, and the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office. They want to make it clear this type of behaviour will not be tolerated. "There will be consequences for committing crimes in Barnegat Township."
