Toms River Police are investigating two car burglaries in movie theater parking lots, where a suspect smashed through vehicle windows to find valuables.
Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy said police responded to a 9:30 p.m. and a 10:45 p.m. car burglary at the AMC Movie Theater lot in Pavilion and at the Marquee Cinema lot in West Dover Monday.
A witness reported the 10:45 p.m. car burglary in the Marquee lot on Route 37 West, saying two windows on cars there were smashed by a male suspect, Mastronardy said.
Police are looking for a male, who was wearing black pants, a white t-shirt and a black baseball cap. He is believed to be connected to a car break-in an hour earlier at the on Bay Avenue.
In the Marquee incident, the suspect removed a purse from a vehicle, then hopped into the passenger a black pick-up truck with a hitch and tinted windows. The male driver fled eastbound on Rotue 37.
In the AMC Theater incident, a 67 year-old Bayville woman found her Nissan's window was smashed, but nothing was reported missing from the car.
