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.
