    Great work Brick police. I hope that the prosecutor doesn’t look for plea deals and give them 1 year in the slammer. They deserve to be incarcerated for at least 20 years. Now, get the other 3 that robbed Rite aid. BTW, we didn’t have any major problems since last year on Labor day in Brick and now, we get everything at once. Hopefuly this is it
