Residents Want Justice For All The Car Burglaries In Egg Harbor Township, NJ
We told you back in December that the authorities in Egg Harbor Township were warning residents to keep their car doors locked. So many people were reporting burglaries that the cops felt it necessary to put out a warning to fellow residents.
Well, unfortunately it seems that locking your doors isn't going to be enough anymore. Over the course of a few weeks or so, multiple people have been sharing their experiences regarding their burglarized vehicles. It hasn't been pretty.
Apparently, these criminals have taken it up a notch in EHT. The communities of London Court and the Atrium apartment complex have seen car windows smashed in and things taken directly from their vehicles without much being done about it so far.
According to multiple people on Facebook, they've reported the crimes and haven't really seen too much being done to help them. Imagine getting your car windows smashed in and nothing done to bring the criminals responsible to justice? To add insult to injury, getting your windows replaced isn't exactly cheap these days.
My question is this: what exactly are victims supposed to do after reporting these break-ins to the police? What happens next? Many are saying they haven't heard back from authorities yet regarding the situation.
I spoke to one victim who had her car windows completely smashed within the London Court development right between the Black Horse Pike and Tilton Road. She wishes to remain anonymous, but she did say that she's not entirely sure where to go from here. She put in a report with the police. They actually came out to her residence to see the broken windows themselves. Now, she said it feels like she's in limbo because she has no idea whether or not to expect them to contact her with anymore information.
She did say, however, that authorities confirmed with her that almost thirty cars in the area were smashed just like that.
How do we make this stop? How do we get justice for these people? If you have any suggestions for these people, join the conversation on the EHT-based Facebook group HERE.
