Turns out the 21-year-old accused of burglarizing four Navesink River Road homes over the last month got into rocker Bon Jovi’s Navesink estate.
Nicholas Tracy, who also featured on redbankgreen last month when he was spotted driving around with a bust of Napoleon Bonaparte, hit the Bon Jovi 15-acre, Navesink River estate on April 3, Detective Lieutenant Steve Dollinger confirmed.
Tracy’s alleged crimes took place over a month, and included stealing jewelry and watches from four homes, Dollinger said.
He wasn’t caught until Wednesday, when he tripped an alarm at a Navesink River Road home, Dollinger said.
Details of what was taken from Bon Jovi’s house were not available from police. Dollinger said no individual home owners have come forward to identify any of the stolen items, but in all cases they include watches and jewelry, Dollinger said.
In all, Tracy, of Beachwood, is accused of bagging $500,000 of jewelry. The Asbury Park Press, citing court records, says Tracy stole about $100,000 worth of jewelry belonging to Bon Jovi’s wife, Dorothea.
As far as Dollinger knows, Tracy is still being held on $100,000 bail with no 10-percent option. He’s charged with four counts of third-degree burglary and three counts of second-degree theft.
Bon Jovi made news earlier today for his foundation’s plans to open a permanent restaurant in Red Bank called the Soul Kitchen.
