JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ – Jackson Police say two males driving a car stolen out of Asbury Park were spotted in the garage of a home that also wasn’t theirs. A property manager approached the males who said they were just looking for a school in the area.

On Monday, at 12:18 pm, Jackson Police Officer Shane Davis responded to a residence located on North Boston Road on the report of a suspicious incident.

“An employee of a property management company stopped to check on a house the company owns and encountered two male subjects who were not supposed to be on the property, standing by the garage of the residence,” police said in a statement today. “When he made contact with the males, they claimed they were looking for a school in the area, and then after a short conversation with the employee, they left and the employee contacted police headquarters.”

According to the Jackson Township Police Department, the males fled in a 2007 Ford F150 pickup, NJ registration XJPH59.

Police described the trick as gray with a red tailgate.

“When the responding officer checked the vehicle registration it was discovered that the truck had been reported stolen out of Asbury Park. The males were described as a black male and a white male, both approximately 18-21 years old and both wearing ski masks,”
