Police are searching for three men who they say burglarized a home in Brick Township, New Jersey while one of them distracted the homeowner.
The alleged victim told police he was bringing in his garbage can on December 10 on the 2500 block of Hooper Avenue when a man approached him.
The homeowner says the man began to speak to him about fence work that a neighbor was considering. As the two men talked, police say two other suspects entered the home and stole several items, including a large black safe, computer and computer monitor.
The three men then left the area before the homeowner realized he had been burglarized, according to investigators.
The man told police that the suspect who distracted him was driving a white work van, though he did not see the vehicle’s registration.
A surveillance video captured the two suspects who entered the home and removed the items. If you have any information on their whereabouts, please call Detective Daniel Waleski of the Brick Township Police Detective Bureau at 732-262-1170. You can also call the Brick Township Police Department at 732-262-1100 after normal business hours.
