According to police, the perpetrators cut the screen of a front window and opened the window. A notebook computer was stolen from the home which was valued at $398. The computer was owned by a friend of the resident who lives in Oceanport.


On Monday, Sept. 24 a Manalapan homeowner came home to find a burglar in the house. The unknown individual left the Monterey Lane home through a rear door as the homeowner entered the home, according to Manalapan Police Capt. Michael Fountain.

Marlboro Police K-9 unit was dispatched to help track down the perpetrator who fled the scene on foot. A second individual may have left the home in a white, 4-door Honda, but police are not certain that this vehicle is connected with the break-in.

Perhaps the township committee can let the police department get just a little smaller. Through attrition they've cut our police department by over 15 officers, typically only four patrolling 30 square miles. They are running from call to call, not patrolling your neighborhood. All this while paying 5 figure overtime bills to maintain that four officer minimum. Do not vote incumbent, they have failed us miserably.
