Update: 4 Sheriff’s vehicles are in the Vines assessing the situation. The OC Sheriff is on scene as well.
For the 10th time in about as many weeks, multiple Lakewood homes were broken into Friday night.
The exact number is 14 – Law enforcement officers tell GL.
This week’s target was the Prospect Vines neighborhood. It is unclear as of yet if this is part of the ‘gang of three.’
Over 10 homes were broken into via an open porch door or unlocked window near the deck. One was forced entry.
Only cash was taken, no checks, silver or valuables.
LCSW asks all residents who had a break-in, regardless if anything was taken – file a separate police report. Call 732-363-0200 Extension 0
The PD is apparently unhappy that GL is reporting on the uptick in crime. To be clear in no way is this reflective of the PD but rather the sad state of some of the town’s residents.
That is why Police Chief Meyer sent a safety message to The Lakewood Scoop on Friday but refuses to alert GreaterLakewood’s thousands of readers…
Safety or politics? What is more important?
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the men and women in Blue for all that they do to keep our town safe!!
