Metuchen police investigates rash of vehicle break-ins

Dec. 29, 2015: The Metuchen Police Department is asking residents to make sure their vehicles are locked.

Police are investigating at least 22 car burglaries that occurred over a two-week period, Sgt. Arthur Flaherty said Dec. 24. Also, two vehicles were stolen in the borough and recovered in Newark, Flaherty said.

There is no distinct pattern to the break-ins — they have occurred all over the borough and don’t involved particular types of vehicles, he said.

“The MO is to find unlocked cars,” Flaherty said.

The borough put out an emergency communication to residents earlier in December asking to make sure to lock vehicles.
