Police Investigate Theft Of $15K Worth Of Materials
Rims and tires stolen from six vehicles in one night.
Police suspect more than one person is involved in a theft of tires and rims from six vehicles at Honda Autosport last week.
According to police, the vehicles had been parked at the business overnight on Dec. 9, and the theft totaled $15,332.56 in stolen items.
According to Bridgewater Township Police Lt. Al Nicaretta, it is possible that the tires and rims were taken from new cars because they are easier and more profitable when sold.
But although no one has been arrested in the incident, Nicaretta said, he believes there was probably more than one person involved.
"Just due to the shear amount of tires stolen, this was probably done by three or four people," he said.
The Bridgewater Township Police Department made a few other arrests for incidents between Dec. 4 and Dec. 9.
- Nery Garcia, 46, of Dunellen, was charged with driving while intoxicated and failure to observe a traffic signal after he was pulled over while driving on Finderne Avenue Dec. 4.
- Jermaine Mitchell, 28, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was charged with shoplifting after police allegedly found him with $273 worth of merchandise from True Religion Brand Jeans at the Bridgewater Commons Mall Dec. 9.
