BAYVILLE – A Bayville McDonald’s was robbed in the overnight hours leading into Memorial Day by two of its own employees, who walked away with $3,144.52 from the restaurant’s safe, although not for very long.

Berkeley Police was called to investigate the incident by McDonald’s store management around 11 a.m. on May 29. They were told that two individuals had come into the store the previous night, went directly to where the safe was located and opened it using a combination. Two bank deposit envelopes being stored inside were taken. There was no sign of forced entry to the restaurant doors or to the safe.

After an investigation by the Berkeley Police Department’s Detective Bureau under Detective Riccardelli, the two individuals were identified as McDonald’s employees James Carpenter, 20, and Brandon Baker, 19, both of Ocean Gate. The men were located by officers a short time later. Carpenter was charged with burglary and theft and remanded to the Ocean County Jail. Baker was also charged with burglary and theft but released on a summons.
