MILLSTONE TOWNSHIP, NJ (MONMOUTH)–The New Jersey State Police is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying four suspects who allegedly committed a series of car burglaries in Monmouth County.

On Tuesday, August 17, troopers from Troop “C” Hamilton Station began investigating several car burglaries that were reported between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. in Millstone Township.

During the investigation, troopers discovered that four suspects committed the burglaries. The suspects were caught on video surveillance entering numerous cars, rummaging through interior compartments, and removing numerous items. It is believed the suspects arrived in a unknown dark-colored SUV with an unknown license plate. The suspects are also wanted in connection to three motor vehicle thefts in Millstone during the same time period.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Troop “C” Hamilton Station at 609-584-5000 ext 5297.
