The Jackson Police Department is asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect believed to be involved in the burglaries of two motor vehicles parked at the Pine Barrens Golf Club located on South Hope Chapel Road on December 3rd.
The first victim reported that his 2017 Chevy had been entered and over $200.00 in cash along with multiple credit and debit cards were stolen.
The second victim responded to police headquarters the following day to report that his 2017 Honda had been entered and his wallet was stolen which was reported to contain $200.00 and multiple credit cards. He then began to receive fraud notices from the credit card companies and was informed that they had been used at several retail stores for combined purchases exceeding $6,800.00. The cards were used to purchase the items at Walmart in Brick and Toms River and Target in Brick.
It appears that both vehicles had been left unlocked during the incidents.
The suspect vehicle is a Mercedes Benz SUV (pictured) with a California registration. The investigation to date into the registration has not been able to positively identify the suspect, who is also pictured at one of the stores the cards were used at.
Anyone with information which may assist in identifying this male is asked to contact Det. Anthony Riso at 732-928-1111.
- The media and the public are reminded that any persons arrested or charged with any offenses or crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
