Dear Resident:

There has been a recent increase in motor vehicle burglaries in our area. The South Amboy Police Department will not tolerate this type of activity and will increase patrols with both marked units and unmarked units. Almost all of the vehicles where entry was made were left unlocked, some containing loose change while others had contents of significant value such as IPods, Computers and GPS units. We are requesting that residents lock their vehicle doors and refrain from leaving valued possessions overnight in parked vehicles. I am also requesting that residents consider leaving an exterior light illuminated throughout the evening hours. Please report any suspicious activity immediately via 911 or the Department's Main Number at 732-721-0111.

Chief Darren LaVigne
