  • Burglary of Residence (Arrest) – On Friday, July 24, 2015, 20-year-old Jeffrey Burgoyne of 803 Sinclair Avenue in Lanoka Harbor was arrested by Lacey Detectives and charged with Burglary 2C:18-2a(1) of a Drew Avenue home. On Saturday, July 18, 2015, at 2:22 p.m., Officer Daniel Ricciardella responded to the 700 block of Drew Avenue in Lanoka Harbor for a report of a burglary. The victim reported that earlier on July 18, 2015, at 7:11 a.m., he was home when a male subject rang his doorbell. After a short period of not answering the door, the male subject attempted to open the front door by turning the doorknob; however, the door was locked. The complainant opened the front door and observed the male suspect exiting from his garage which was previously closed. The male suspect then ran from the scene. Video surveillance footage from the victim’s residence provided images of the suspect as a white male wearing a black t-shirt and green camouflage pants. The video confirmed that the suspect opened the unlocked garage door and entered the garage.  The suspect then fled the scene when he was confronted by the homeowner/victim. Additional video surveillance footage from another residence in the area also revealed useful information which led to the identification of the suspect. Lacey detectives obtained a search warrant for the residence of Jeffrey Burgoyne (803 Sinclair Avenue, Lanoka Harbor), and the search warrant was executed on Friday, July 24, 2015. Jeffrey Burgoyne was arrested by Lacey Detectives and charged with Burglary 2C:18-2a(1) of the Drew Avenue home. His bail was set at $15,000. He was transported to the Ocean County Correctional Facility in default of the bail. Other home burglaries, including a July 19, 2015, burglary of a Hazelton Avenue home (as well as others in the area) remain under investigation, as additional charges are pending further investigation. Anyone with information which may assist detectives in the continuing investigation is asked to call the Lacey Township Police Department at 609-693-6636 or submit an anonymous crime tip at www.LaceyPD.org/crime-tips/.
