JACKSON-The Jackson Police Department is investigating multiple burglaries which have occurred in our senior communities recently and we are asking residents to be aware of, and report any suspicious persons observed in their neighborhoods. We are also asking that anyone who has information on the subject in the attached video and photo to contact police headquarters with that information. (Please see image from video in the comments)
In the recent months, there have been reported burglaries in the Four Seasons at South Knolls located on North County Line Road, Four Seasons at Metedeconk located between Harmony and Eltone Roads, Greenbriar at Winding Ways located on South Cooks Bridge Road and West Lake Mews, also located off of South Cooks Bridge Road.
On Friday February 14, 2020, a resident of Chesterfield Drive in Four Seasons at Metedeconk contacted headquarters to report a suspicious person observed walking in the community. This person claimed to be a security guard but refused to identify himself to the resident and then left the area. Officers responded and checked the area and also requested a helicopter from the New Jersey State Police to check the area for this person, but he was unable to be located. A resident on Chesterfield Drive later reported a burglary to their residence.
Detectives from the Jackson Police Department have been working with multiple agencies to investigate these incidents and were able to obtain a video from a Ring doorbell from a resident of the Four Seasons at Metedeconk showing a possible suspect. This subject matches the description and clothing of the subject reported on February 14th and the video shows his attempt to cover his face after seeing the Ring doorbell. When he turns, a crowbar is also visible sticking out of the backpack he is carrying.
