Brick police are investigating separate incidents that occurred overnight between Sunday and Monday and urging residents to keep their properties secure.
During the night, multiple vehicle burglaries were reported to police in the Shore Acres and Baywood sections of Brick Township, police said in a statement. The suspects were operating what appeared in a surveillance photo to be a light blue or silver BMW sedan. That photo is embedded in this story.
In a separate incident, suspects entered a home in Lake Riviera during the early morning hours of Sept. 18, police said. Suspects stole personal items including a key fob from the residence. The suspects left the victim’s home and fled the area after the homeowner woke up.
Police in local communities have warned residents that even if they lock the doors to their cars, burglars are increasingly attempting to enter homes in search of key fobs so they can steal vehicles in the driveway. Higher-end vehicle brands are often targeted, though numerous models have taken from their owners.
“Residents are reminded to lock their vehicles and all doors and windows to their residence,” the statement said. “Report any suspicious activity to Brick Township Police Department. Do not approach suspects, as they should be considered armed and dangerous.”
