Jackson police urging residents to lock vehicles after string of burglaries

Residents are reminded again to remove any valuables, including your wallets and purses from your vehicles, and to lock them – even if they are parked in your driveway.

On Friday April 23, 2021, officers responded to residences located on Meadowood Road on the report of burglaries to motor vehicles and several attempted burglaries which occurred during the overnight hours.

One resident reported that a 2018 Hyundai which was unlocked was entered, and a purse was stolen. The purse contained the victim’s wallet along with a NJ driver’s license, credit cards and other documents.

Another resident reported that an unlocked 2007 GMC was entered and a wallet containing cash, a NJ driver’s license, credit cards and other documents was stolen.

During a neighborhood canvass, officers spoke with several other Meadowood Road residents who checked their security cameras and discovered that what appeared to be two males were observed attempting to get into their vehicles but were unsuccessful as the vehicles were locked. The suspects were wearing hooded sweatshirts and the images recovered at this time do not provide any detail to assist in identification.

Residents observing suspicious activity are asked to contact police headquarters at 732-928-1111 so available officers can respond to investigate. Anyone with additional information on these incidents is asked to call police headquarters.
