Oceanport Woman Charged With Stealing UPS, Fedex Packages From Homes

Ocean Township man also facing charges

The Oceanport and Ocean Township Police Departments have arrested two people and charged them with multiple parcel thefts in several towns.

The joint 2-week investigation led to the arrests of a 27-year-old Oceanport female, and a 25-year-old Ocean Township male, the Oceanport Police stated
on their Facebook page.

"The Ocean Township Police Department, and the Oceanport Police had taken numerous reports of thefts from outside of homes," police state. "The accused were commiting thefts by taking recently delivered UPS, and FEDEX packages from front porches and then selling the stolen items to local stores for cash."

Oceanport Police Det. Daniel Petrucelli located and charged the two accused with theft, and conspiracy with several of the Oceanport incidents in which evidence linked them with the offense.

Police say several other parcel theft incidents are still under investigation.

The female was subsequently transported to the Monmouth County Jail, and the male released on summonses. Both are awaiting court proceedings.

Why are there no names released? It isn't as if they are minors

Yes, why are the names of these adults not mentioned?

Names? We need names. There is just too much going (wrong) in Oceanport not to release names. We need to know so we can watch out for one another. As if Sandy weren't enough for Oceanport - where are all these people coming from - theft, burglary, stealing, sexual assault of a child? Our sweet little peaceful town. We need to know what's going on.
