The Manalapan Police Department has reported six car burglaries during the first weekend of December.
Ptl. Bryan Belardo responded to three Kipling Way homes on Sunday, Dec. 2 for a report of four burglarized cars. At some point between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. an unknown individual entered four unlocked cars. Two of the cars were rummaged through with nothing removed, while a black GPS unit and charger were stolen from another vehicle and a Riley 4-in-1 emergency utility tool and $4 in cash were stolen from the last car. Two of the vehicles were owned by Manalapan residents, while the two that were simply searched through were owned by a 58-year-old East Brunswick woman.
On the same day, Ptl. Philip Accatatta arrived at a Jared Lane home for the report of a burglarized car. The 52-year-old man who owned the vehicle told Accatatta that his car was unlocked and parked in his driveway overnight. At 10 a.m. on Sunday he noticed that the interior of his car was in disarray and several dollars of cash were stolen.
Accattata also reported to an Oxford Home residence on Sunday for another car which had been illegally entered. The car was left unlocked between 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29 and 8:35 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. Items within the glovebox and center console were strewn about the inside of the car, but nothing was removed, according to police.
