Toms River Men Charged In Manchester with Selling Stolen Jewelry Back to Victim

Manchester Township Police charged two Toms River men with stealing jewelry from a second-hand store and later selling it back to the same business.

On March 13, 2014, Robert J. McGlyn, 37 of Noturn Way and Michael J. Miller Jr., 43, of Cozy Way, both from the Homestead Run development in Toms River Township, sold two pieces of sterling silver jewelry to Precious Metal Buyers LLC. located in Hudson City Plaza in Manchester Township. 

After completing the transaction, the employee recognized the two purchased items as property that he had previously purchased from another customer in February 2013. 

After filing a police report for the incident, Manchester Township Police conducted an investigation into the matter. It was learned that both McGlyn and Miller were repeat customers of Precious Metal Buyers LLC. and managed to take the previously purchased jewelry while they were in the sales office on a prior visit. They returned with the two items and received payment for the value of the items. 

Miller was arrested on March 31, 2014, for one count of theft and one count of theft by deception. He was released after posting bail at police headquarters.

McGlyn was arrested on April 2, 2014, for one count of theft and one count of theft by deception. McGlyn also had an outstanding traffic warrant out of Toms River Township Municipal Court for $350.00. He was transported to Ocean County Jail in default of bail.

Isn't the Homestead Run development in Toms River an age restricted 55+ area?

Marynary, yes it is a 55+ community. However one adult child (over 21) is allowed to live with one or both parents who own a home in most 55+ communities. This is usually where the trouble starts... "bad people" get out of jail or rehab, or off the streets and need a place to stay, so they turn to mom & dad or the grandparents... It's hard to slam the door on family.

Maybe these gold/silver buyers will start to take a closer look at what is being sold. I personally don't think a number of them give a darn as long as they can make $$ for themselves.

Yep, Mattie, you are on the $$ on this one. Wow, something we can agree upon...:)
