TOMS RIVER – Do you lock your vehicle after parking it? No? Why not!? You should, especially in Toms River where police are issuing yet another common sense reminder. They are also asking the public’s help to identify a man seen on surveillance video burglarizing several cars.

Toms River Police Spokesman Ralph Stocco says the unidentified suspect was seen entering the vehicles in the Tallymawr development back on November 13th. In addition cars parked on Benjamin Street and Brentwood Avenue were also a target.

Police believe the suspect was driving a light-colored Chevy Tahoe or a Yukon and the molding on the driver’s side was missing.

In the surveillance images, the man was seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt, ripped jeans and light colored shoes. There was also a second person seen sitting in the vehicle as they sped off.

Anyone who can provide information to police should call Detective James Carey at 732-349-0150 extension 1292 or e-mail

Also, everyone is reminded again to lock your doors, especially when you are not with your vehicle – outside your home, in your driveway or at shopping malls.
