Multiple Businesses Report Attempted Burglaries

Toms River police respond to incidents at restaurants

Toms River Police responded to multiple incidents of break-ins at businesses this week along the Route 166 corridor.

More than $1,000 in damage occurred at Little Kusina restaurant, 1594 Route 9, around 1 a.m. Wednesday, Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy said. An unknown suspect, or suspects, broke a window in the front of the store, but also attempted to force upon a rear door that was secured by a dead bolt.

Mastronardy said the incident was an attempted burglary. Although no proceeds were taken the owner reported more than $1,000 in damage.

Officers Jesse Robertazzi and Adam Worth are investigating.

Approximately four hours later, another incident was reported on Route 166.

Officers Robertazzi and Ron Bayer responded to an alarm at Villa Amalfi on Route 166 at 5 a.m. Wednesday morning, said the police chief.

In the Villa Amalfi incident, a basement window door was busted, its glass broken in an attempt to enter the restaurant, Mastronardy said. However, no entry was made and no proceeds were removed.

Sometime Tuesday night, a third restaurant reported an attempted burglary.

In this case, Wing Far Chinese restaurant at 2114 Route 9 saw about $500 in damage, Mastronardy said.

Unknown suspects shattered the front door and pried the back rear door to the restaurant. However, nothing was reported stolen.

Officer Steve Austin is investigating.

Anyone with information on these incidents can call police headquarters at 732-349-0150.

Wing Far is actually up by Cox Cro road in North Dover, Not that I am defending the Emerald Apratments or Winteringham, they both should be burnt to the gorund. But it just goes to show even in North Dover no one is safe from these scum bags.
