Resident Assistance Leads to Arrest in Burglary/Theft Case

Mar 27, 2019

After a month-long investigation, Barnegat Township Sgt. MaryAnn Cirulli signed complaints against Timothy Isaksen, a Freehold man, for multiple offenses in connection with burglary and theft incidents in February.

During the early morning hours of Feb. 3, officers responded to reports that property had been stolen from several parked, unsecured vehicles. Among the items stolen were cash, medication and numerous credit/debit cards.

Police Chief Keith Germain said Cirulli developed evidence that led her to investigate video surveillance footage from a local Wawa convenience store. Video of two subjects of interest was recovered and shared on the police department's social media in an attempt to identify the subjects.

He said a concerned citizen contacted police after seeing the post on Facebook and provided information that led to the identification of Isaksen, 35, as the suspect. Isaksen was already lodged in the Monmouth County Jail on unrelated charges.

Further investigation resulted in Isaksen’s being charged with three counts of computer criminal activity, burglary and theft.

“Thanks again to our outstanding local community for once again proving that we are at our best and most successful when the community and police department work together,” said Germain. E.E.
