Police Arrest Two In Connection With Recent Toms River Burglary

Both charged with receiving stolen property, police chief says

Police have charged two Toms River residents with receiving stolen property after a probe into a Sept. 17 burglary on Nanlyn Terrace, Police Chief Michael G. Mastronardy said.

Stacy Atry, 23, Nanlyn Terrace and Kevin Tanfield, 32, Edgewood Drive were both arrested at a home in Pemberton Township last week, according to Capt. Bruce Burgess, commander of the department's Investigation Bureau.

Atry's bail was set at $10,000, Tanfield's bail was set at $20,000, police said.

Toms River detectives Mark Bajada, John Turner and Roger Hull recovered most of the jewelry taken in the burglary. Tanfield was found hiding under a bed at a home on Goodwater Avenue in Browns Mills, Mastronardy said.

Police are still looking for three handguns that were also stolen during the burglary, Mastronardy said.

Toms River police were assisted by the U.S. Marshals Office and the Pemberton Police Department, he said.

The incident is not related to the home invasion that took place late last week, the chief said.

Most the legwork was most likely done by the Marshals they are far more competent!

Not sure where Nanlyn Terrace is, but Edgewood Drive is Silver Ridge Apartments. Another crimminal from those apartments, seems like there are more and more of them in there.

I guess that's what they mean by the old saying "you get what you pay for." we left Union county to be closer to the beach and for lower property taxes. I guess that's why the taxes in Union County were a little higher....at least we were a whole lot safer. I think the time has come to move back there. Things are BAD down here and getting worse!!!

Same here. We moved down here for the same reasons. I never thought I would want to move back to my hometown. Toms River is full of trash. Time to go back to reality.
