Police Searching for Burglary Suspect
Public's help requested in identifying suspect
Brick police are asking the public’s help in identifying the suspect of a day time burglary that occurred last week.
The suspect, a young man whose sketch is attached to this article, is suspected of burglarizing a Roosevelt Drive resident's home.
When a resident of the street came home at about 12:25 p.m. July 13, she noticed the man emerging from her backyard. At the time, the man said he was delivering a package as the resident noticed her rear door open and no package on the ground, according to Capt. John Rein.
At that point, Rein said, the suspect jumped a fence and ran down Roosevelt Drive toward Route 70, where he was observed entering a beige colored mid-sized vehicle with a dark vinyl or cloth top.
A check of the house revealed the man had entered the residence and took jewelry from the master bedroom.
The suspect is described as a white male between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, approximately 20 years of age, with brown hair, hazel eyes, heavy build, and last seen wearing khaki shorts and a striped Polo shirt.
The sketch of the suspect was completed by the Toms River Police Department based on the victim's description.
Anyone with information about the burglary or the suspect is asked to contact Brick Township Police Detective Daniel Waleski at 732-262-1170.
