WOMAN FACES CHARGES IN THREE TOWNS

A 27-year-old Highlands woman faces a slew of charges arising from an  string of car burglaries in Rumson and Little Silver, police reported Wednesday.

She’s also in trouble in Shrewsbury.

After Highlands police picked her up on a warrant Wednesday, Rumson police charged Kimberly A. Campo with crimes arising from an early-morning car break-in last Thurday, police Chief Rich Tobias tells redbankgreen.

Two days later, Campo is alleged to have broken into five cars in the Sunnycrest and Silverwhite Road neighborhoods of Little Silver last Saturday, said Little Silver Detective Greg Oliva of that town.

Rumson charged Campo with burglary, three counts of forgery, and two counts of credit card theft, Tobias said. Additional charges are pending, he said.

In Little Silver, Campo was charged with five counts of  burglary and three counts of theft. The burglaries were of unlocked cars, and occurred in the predawn hours, Oliva said. Taken were a wallet, an EZ Pass, cash and credit cards, which were used for purchases at local stores, he said.

Campo was also charged by Shrewsbury, authorities said. Details were not immediately unavailable about that case.

Campo was being held at the Monmouth County Correctional Institution on $15,000 bail from Little Silver and $12,500 in the Rumson case.

The arrest followed a joint investigation involving detectives from Little Silver, Rumson and Shrewsbury.
“All the detectives were working together on this,” Tobias said.
