LAKEWOOD – A Manchester Township man has been arrested and charged with several burglaries committed at building supply companies in Lakewood, police said.
After a two-month investigation, authorities arrested 39-year-old Jesse Vonderlin.
According to Lakewood Police Captain Gregory Staffordsmith, the burglaries happened from November to January. At each of the crime locations, a light-colored Jeep Liberty was in the area or on the properties at the time of the crimes, Staffordsmith said. Police then discovered that the registered owner of the 2012 Jeep Liberty was Vonderlin. He was also seen on video surveillance committing the crimes.
Authorities seized roofing materials at Vonderlin’s home, which are believed to be taken from Beacon Building Products in Lakewood.
Vonderlin was charged with five counts of burglary, one count of receiving stolen property and one count of resisting arrest by flight. He was taken to the Ocean County Jail.
Charges are merely accusations until proven in a court of law.
