Marlboro police reported the arrest of three individuals who have been charged in connection with an attempt to enter a vehicle while it was parked on a driveway in the municipality.

In a press release, Police Capt. Stephen Levy reported that at 2:30 a.m. Jan. 27, the Marlboro Police Department received a 911 call from a homeowner on Cypress Lane who reported that two men dressed in black were on his driveway attempting to enter his vehicle.

Cypress Lane runs between Gordons Corner and Wyncrest roads.

The men could not gain entry because the vehicle’s doors were locked. The men left the property and got into a black SUV and fled the area. The homeowner was able to provide police with a direction of travel for the suspects’ vehicle, according to the press release.

A short time later, Patrolman Adam Levine was able to locate the vehicle on Further Lane, off Crine Road. The vehicle was traveling at a very low rate of speed.

After conducting an investigation at the scene and speaking with the homeowner who initially called police and with all the occupants of the vehicle, Levine placed the three suspects under arrest, Levy reported.

The suspects were transported to police headquarters for processing and the vehicle they were driving was impounded.

Police arrested a 49-year-old male resident of Newark, a 21-year-old male resident of Newark and a 17-year-old male juvenile.

The two adults were charged with attempted burglary and were transported to the Monmouth County jail, Freehold Township. The juvenile was released to the custody of his
father pending a juvenile complaint, according to the press release.

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum announced that the December 2021 Officers of the Month were Lt. Nicholas Szymanski, Detective Sgt. John Bise, Sgt. Andrew Goldberg and Communications Operator Paul Lorenz of the Marlboro Police Department.

After participating in the Police Unity Tour in Washington, D.C., these four officers stopped at the Maryland House Travel Plaza, where they noticed an elderly woman lying unconscious on the ground.
