Toms River Police Canvassing Neighbor Where Couple Was Tied, Robbed at Gunpoint
Toms River–A press release was issued tonight by Chief Michael Mastronardy of the Toms River Police Department:
The Department is continuing the investigation today into the Home Invasion that took place midnight on Friday at a residence in the 300 block of Colonial Drive in the River crest section of the Township. Officers are conducting a canvass of the neighborhood this evening attempting to obtain any information from people who live in the neighborhood. The suspects are described as three males, forced open a locked sliding glass door of the bi-level and awoke the residents at gun point. The suspects were each armed with black automatic handguns and remained in the home for at least thirty minutes while removing two safes, and a large amount of antique and vintage jewelry. The grey safes are 2 feet by 2 feet and apparently were carried to at least one vehicle that was parked on Nanlyn Terrace. The suspects wore black ski masks and blue and white shirts and brown work gloves. The victims have been involved in the jewelry business and the investigation indicates that the residence was targeted. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Louis Santora or Roger Hull at 349-0150 ext 1276.
