TOMS RIVER, NJ –  Did you know Ocean County is the last county where the jail regularly posts inmate check-ins and mug shots?  In recent years, most other counties stopped sharing criminal data with the public, but thanks to apps like Jailbase, in Ocean County you can see who checks in and out.   Here’s a list of inmates at the Ocean County Jail with new check-ins between Monday and Wednesday.  Please note, not all of the bookings mean a new crime has been committed.  Some re-entries can be because of sentencing, pre-trial violations, other warrants, unpaid fines, and a host of other variables.  The information on this list was obtained from the Ocean County Jail.  Please send corrections to news@shorenewsnetwork.com.
