Please be advised during the early morning hours of January 3rd, 2018, we had two vehicles stolen out of their respective driveways. These thefts are believed to be part of a known auto theft ring out of North Jersey. Currently, the thefts are being investigated by the Sea Girt Police Department and the New Jersey State Police Auto Theft Unit. Currently there is no threat to public safety as these thieves have been known to come in during the overnight hours to avoid any human confrontation.  These thieves target high end expensive vehicles unlocked with the fobs in the vehicles. Residents are reminded to lock doors and remove key fobs from the vehicles. Residents with surveillance systems are also asked to please check your camera footage for any suspicious footage captured during the hours of 2:00am and 4:30am January 3, 2018. If you see or hear anything suspicious please call 9-1-1 and report it immediately.
