TOMS RIVER, NJ – It’s not just the politicians in Toms River robbing residents these days. The Toms River Police Department today reported a sharp increase in car burglaries in the township.
“We have seen an uptick in criminals looking for unlocked vehicles to burglarize. This is a friendly reminder to lock your car doors. Most car burglaries are either unlocked car doors, or people leaving purses or valuables in plain view and having their windows broken,” the police department said. “Please lock your doors and hide valuables even if you are just leaving your car for a few minutes.”
