Lower Police Arrest Juvenile for Motor Vehicle Thefts

Lower Police Arrest Juvenile for Motor Vehicle Thefts

From Lower Township Police Department

ERMA – During the months of April and May, the Lower Township Police Department investigated several reports of motor vehicle thefts and attempted motor vehicle thefts in and around the North Cape May area. During the course of the ensuing investigation, detectives from the agency developed a juvenile suspect (13-years-old). The investigation culminated in a search warrant being executed at the suspect’s residence, where evidence pertaining to the investigation was seized.

As a result, the juvenile was charged with multiple counts of motor vehicle theft, criminal mischief and burglary and released to his guardian, pending court proceedings.

The Lower Township Police Department reminds residents to take precautions when securing their vehicle. Simple steps such as locking the vehicle’s doors, removing the keys from the vehicle and removing valuables from the inside of the vehicle greatly reduce the risk of theft.

This investigation highlights the importance of community involvement in crime prevention. Anyone with additional information related to these incidents is urged to contact the Lower Township Police Department at 609-886-2711 or submit a tip anonymously online at lowertownshippolice.com.
