JACKSON, NJ – Two teenagers, aged 13 and 15 were arrested, charged and released to the custody of their parents after they escaped an area group home and were caught in vehicle reported stolen earlier this week in Asbury Park.

According to the Jackson Police Department, on Tuesday, at approximately 11:50 am, Police Officers Kevin Scheuerman and Michael Collins were on patrol and checking an undeveloped cul-de-sac located off of Clearstream Road when they observed a vehicle at the rear of the area.

“Upon checking the vehicle, they observed two male occupants and also observed that the vehicle, a gray 2007 Ford F150 pickup with a red tailgate, matched the vehicle description of a reported suspicious incident which occurred the previous day on North Boston Road,” Captain Steven Laskiewicz reported. “Police Officers Derek Gorski and Christopher Wasnesky arrived on scene to assist and the investigation confirmed that the Ford was a reported stolen vehicle out of Asbury Parkand as the officers attempted to identify the two males it was discovered that they had provided false names. Both males were ultimately identified and determined to be a 15-year-old resident of Jackson and a 13-year-old resident of Holmdel. They were taken into custody and the vehicle was impounded.”

According to Laskiewicz, both subjects had been reported missing out of a group home in another county.

“The 13-year-old was charged on a juvenile complaint with hindering apprehension and receiving stolen property and was later turned over to a family member. The 15-year-old was charged on a juvenile complaint with hindering apprehension and receiving stolen property and was later lodged in the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center on an outstanding warrant for violation of probation.”
