COPS IN TWO TOWNS PROBE BURGLARIES

Little Silver and Red Bank police are investigating a pair of similar residential burglaries committed less than half a mile apart on the same day last week, authorities in the adjacent towns say.

In the Little Silver break-in, reported last Thursday at 1:48p on Bennett Lane, police collected physical evidence they hope will lead them to the perp or perps. They also brought in a tracking dog from Atlantic Highlands in an unsuccessful effort to find the burglars, who forced their way into a house through a locked front door and made off with a stash of jewelry, says Sergeant Dan Shaffrey.

The same day, at an unspecified time between 8:30a and 5:03p, a burglary was committed at a home on Silverwhite Avenue in Red Bank, police reported. There, the burglar tore an alarm off the wall and made off with cash and jewelry.

“We don’t have any evidence at this point that links the two, but we’re certainly looking at that possibility,” Red Bank Chief Steve McCarthy tells redbankgreen.
