RED BANK: CRIME VICTIM RIDES MEDIA WAVE

What do you do when your beloved surfboard gets stolen from your driveway? Well, first, you call the cops. Then, if you’re media maven and Red Bank resident Brian Donohue, you go wide, using your job as a video reporter to rally everyone within reach on a hunt for your most prized possession.

Donohue, who recently relocated to My9 Chasing News from NJ.com, had his rare Hap Jacobs nine-foot longboard swiped from his Bank Street driveway Saturday night. He’s since embarked on a mission, aided by social media, a drone, the harshed mellow of fellow surfers and the above report to try to find it. He’s also offered a $300 reward.

“I feel like my dog died,” he said. “I just want it back, no questions asked.” (Click to enlarge)
