Dropped Receipt Leads To Arrest Of Serial Burglar, Accomplice

NABBED: A serial burglar responsible for multiple burglaries in Lakewood was arrested after dropping a receipt in one of the homes he’d burglarized, Captain Paul Daly tells TLS.

Lakewood resident Kayshon Johnson, 22, broke into a Lakewood home during the night on November 3rd by forcing open a locked window. He made off with a safe containing cash and jewelry, says Captain Daly.

But the keen homeowner noticed on the floor a receipt which appeared to have belonged to the burglar, and handed it into police.

The burglar was arrested within 24 hours later, when the receipt to a Brick store contained the burglar’s Awards # information.

An accomplice, Lakewood resident Nicole Signer, 19, who drove the burglar to his ‘jobs’, was arrested as well.

The suspects were charged with Burglary, Theft and for possession of CDS, and transported to Ocean County Jail. They were released on $10,000 and $15,000 bail.

Further investigation revealed that Johnson was responsible for at least seven other burglaries, most of them occurring in the Spruce, Marc, and Ned Drive areas, Daly says. TLS.

  1. One of the main things they look at when they make the price for bail is risk of not returning to court. In this case they are not afraid of him not coming back to face charges.

  2. TO #3, this is not only nowadays. This has been going on always. And unfortunately, some of those parents are proud. About 30 years ago, my son had his bike stolen here in Lakewood and we located it after we heard two mothers conversing in Spanish, but said the word “basement” in English. We went down to their basement and retreived the bike, which my grandchildren still use!
