Police are investigating two daytime burglaries – one in the Herbertsville section and one in the Lions Head South community – that occurred this week.
In the first of the two burglaries, which occurred Tuesday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at a residence on 5th Avenue, a resident told police someone had entered the home and stole a watch and digital camera, according to Capt. John Rein.
In that incident, Rein said the burglar was believed to have entered the home through a rear window.
The second burglary occurred on Wednesday between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
In that buglary, an Ashford Drive resident came home and found the front door kicked in and immediately called police, Rein said. Jewelry and cash were found to have been stolen from the home.
Brick Police are advising residents to immediately report any suspicious or unfamiliar persons or vehicles at neighbors' residences when they are aware that they are not at home, Rein said.
Anyone with information about these recent burglaries is asked to contact the Brick Township Police Investigations Division at 732-262-1120.
