Vehicle Stolen in Harvey Cedars
HARVEY CEDARS, NJ- July 14, 2013, a 2013 white Mercedes Benz S550 was taken from a residence on Buckingham Ave in the Borough late in the evening. The vehicle is valued at over $100,000.00. The vehicle was unlocked with the key fob left in it. Police are reviewing surveillance video from the area but have no leads at this time. During the same evening, three other similar vehicles were stolen from towns in Monmouth County. Police believe that a car theft ring came to the area looking for these types of vehicles. Thieves take these vehicles and return to Newark or New York City. This type of activity was reported last summer. Residents and visitors are urged to remove the keys from their vehicles and lock the car doors. Sgt. Steve Frazee and Officer Anthony Abbatemarco are investigating.
