A pair of men were caught driving to three different Brick preschools and child care providers early Wednesday morning in what appears to be a robbery attempt, before stealing items from vehicles at one of the schools.

The vehicle pictured with this story – thought to be a late-model Hyundai crossover – was seen on surveillance video at three preschools in Brick Wednesday morning between 7:45 a.m. and 8:10 a.m., according to police.

At the first two facilities, which were not named, the vehicle was seen traveling through the parking lots, looking for potential victims, according to police. Witnesses stated that at approximately 8:05 a.m. Wednesday morning, the same silver SUV, occupied by two black men wearing black hats and black jackets, entered the parking lot of the Goddard School on Drum Point Road.

The unidentified men shattered the front passenger window of one vehicle and removed a pocketbook containing personal items and cash, police said.
