The message from MBPD comes amidst the latest car theft in New Jersey, this one in the borough in the middle of the night on Sunday morning.

In this instance, someone hopped in a black 2020 Range Rover in a driveway on Meadow Avenue and then drove off.

As Monmouth Beach Police and Detective Kevin Duerkes investigate this car theft alongside the New Jersey State Police, another vehicle theft came to their attention with possible ties to this case out of the Big Apple.

Police spotted the vehicle around 2:07 am and pursued it as it matches several vehicle thefts that have occurred recently in Monmouth County.

The officers pursuit was stopped because the vehicle he was trying to pull over was flying down the road and out of town.

Officers spotted the vehicle along Ocean Avenue about an hour later but with the same ending on the pursuit due to public safety concerns.

Then, finally, around 5:27 am they found what they said was an "unfamiliar vehicle" along Meadow Avenue.

It turns out, this particular vehicle was reported stolen by the NYPD.

Monmouth Beach Police said that they believe "the Range Rover was stolen and this vehicle was likely left by the same suspects."

They continue to investigate, but again, remind you to do your part in securing your vehicle.
