3 juveniles tied to dozens of burglaries throughout New Jersey arrested

A string of vehicle burglaries and vehicle thefts back in February led to the arrest of three juveniles from north jersey.

On February 6 of this year over 40 burglaries to vehicles and 4 vehicle thefts were reported in the Midstreams section of town, east of Jordan Road.

Coordination with neighboring Point Pleasant Police revealed that the suspects had driven the stolen vehicles to the Exxon station at the corner of Rt. 88 and Bridge Ave., and after fueling up they left without paying. Brick Detectives Dan Waleski and Greg Mullarkey were the primary investigators assigned to the case.

Detectives Waleski and Mullarkey discovered that the stolen vehicle went through the Union Toll Plaza on Parkway North at 6:45 that morning. They followed leads and discovered footage of the stolen vehicle on the surveillance cameras at a White Castle Drive Thru in Irvington. Three male juveniles were seen in the vehicle on the camera, one of them tossing stolen credit and debit cards out the window.

With the aid of Detectives Waleski’s and Mullarky’s discoveries, the NJSP Auto Theft Task Force out of Newark tied numerous vehicle thefts and burglaries throughout the state to the three juvenile suspects. On April 17th, that Task Force concluded its investigations into dozens of cases with arrests of the three juveniles and accompanying delinquency complaints.

    Just wondering….Lakewood has been plagued by a rash of burglaries every Shabbos for months now. Does this story do anything for us? I mean it’s nice that other towns are catching burglars. But we can’t seem to get a handle on it.
