Ocean County Sherriff’s Department officers investigating one of the crime scenes.

Burglars made off with a car, cash, jewelry and other valuables after a theft spree early Thursday morning in Toms River, according to police.

The thefts took place in the North Dover (Tallymawr) section of the town, and police believe that the same suspects are responsible for all three crimes. 

At around 3:06 a.m., four unknown suspects, all wearing dark clothing and face coverings forcibly gained entry to a front window of a residence on Reynolds Avenue. The suspects removed over $100,000 of jewelry and cameras while the homeowners slept.

About 25 minutes later, the suspects started an Audi car parked in a driveway located on Brentwood Avenue. The group left the engine running in the driveway and proceeded to forcibly enter another residence on the street.

At approximately 3:37 a.m., the homeowners at the third residence awoke to the sounds of broken windows, when the burglars entered their home from the backyard. However the thieves were scared off when they became aware that the homeowners had woken up. 

Detectives from Toms River police and the Sherriff’s Department are investigating the incidents.
