UPDATE: LCSW assists in arrest of man suspected of burglarizing multiple vehicles in Lakewood [VIDEO & PHOTOS]

The man suspected of burglarizing multiple vehicles over Shabbos in Lakewood, has been arrested by the Lakewood Police Department, with the assistance of LCSW.

Last night, LCSW says they received a call from a woman who stated she was contacted by a Bachur who had her phone, which he says he purchased from a man selling it on the street. Realizing it might be stolen, the Bachur called the owner of the phone, and confirmed it had been stolen in a burglary.

After gathering information about the suspect, LCSW members began canvassing the downtown area.

Late last night, a member patrolling Second Street spotted what he believed was the suspect, and called police.

It turns out the man was reportedly found to be in possession of stolen phones, wallets, cred cards, purses and more. He was taken into custody.

    Every week people leave stuff like cash credit cards phones and other valuable stuff in their unlocked cars. When will people learn to lock their car doors it just a flip of a switch or click on key pad. It’s so simple but yet so hard.

    • me says:

      Every week people make comments like these. Sometimes people simply forget to lock their cars because their hands are full with grocery bags and a baby. Some people can afford to lose some pocket change and would rather pay for the convenience of not locking and unlocking their cars. Some people feel their area is so safe there’s no need to lock their car and have been doing so for many years without a problem. In conclusion MYOB, it poses no danger to anyone around them.

        Every week someone gets offended when another points out that habit without thought cause further aggravation down the road.
        Yes, I too sometimes leave my car unlocked because I am too lazy to put “all the bags I gathered” down, lock the door, and try to gather them again.

        That doesnt make the original comment-er wrong. And if you dont like it, moybe YOU MYOB? how bout that?

    Question. Why wait so long to contact police?!

  • Shorty says:

    To the 2nd me there are always people making comments about people who don’t lock there car doors. Really is it that hard to lock your car door. Would you leave your kid in the car because your hands are full? No you would bring in child 1st and then stuff. Just because you think your area is safe if you follow the news you would see this happens very often so that would make you more vigilant to make sure your doors are locked and nothing but you want stolen is left in your car. Would you leave your front door of your house open because the area safe?

    The level of blaming the victim is simply astounding!!!

    So, the woman who by mistake forgot to lock her car is the one at fault and to blame — not the THIEF that STOLE personal property from others and caused tremendous personal aggravation and loss?!?!

    What an upside down world we live in!

    By all means, leave your car unlocked if that is more convenient for you – but not with your valuables – phone, purse and money in there… (if thieves realize no one leaves anything in their cars they will stop attempting) most cars today can be locked from a distance as well – so you can come in put down your bags and then lock the car from your house door… unless you leave the remote in the car as well 😉 or at least remember to lock it at night and lock your doors and windows of your house also while you’re at it…

    A burglar’s life matters. Putting sarcasm aside, let vehicle owners do what they feel is best for them and pray to Bore’ Olam nothing happens. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to leave no valuables inside a vehicle regardless if it’s locked or unlocked. Just wondering. All will be well, Biezrat Hashem. Kol Tuv to all.
