VIDEO: Thief Attempts to Steal Vehicle in Toms River, Only to Find Owner Sitting Inside It

One local thief got quite a surprise while attempting to steal a vehicle.

On Wednesday afternoon, suspects in a silver Audi (believed to be stolen out of Clifton) attempted to steal a vehicle on Todd Road.

The vehicle’s owner was inside the car at the time and startled the suspect who then fled the area. Immediately after, the same suspects made attempts in Wall Twp.

The vehicle was most likely targeted due to the position of the mirrors, indicating it was unlocked.

“Please remember to lock your doors 24 hours of the day as New Jersey is experiences a surge in auto thefts,” TRPD said. “There have been over 700 reported vehicle thefts in NJ in 2022.”

  1. Something suspicious about this: The fact that the vehicle’s owner was INSIDE the car during the attempted theft, leads me to believe that this was an INSIDE job.
