Two Sought by Police in Herbertsville Arson

Two vehicles burned, police say

Police are investigating a vehicle arson in the township's Herbertsville section.

According to Brick Police Sgt. Keith Reinhard, a resident of Maidenstone Drive reported to police that in the early morning hours of Monday, Jan. 7 he heard a loud bang outside of his residence. When he went outside, the resident found his two vehicles, which were parked in his driveway, on fire.

The Herbertsville Fire Company put out the blaze, and police also responded to the scene. No one was injured, Reinhard said.

Police were able to obtain video surveillance from a neighbor which, according to Reinhard, revealed two subjects exiting a light colored four door vehicle. The people then poured some type of an accelerant on or near the vehicles and ignited them.

The Brick Township Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the two people responsible for the vehicle fires. Anyone with information is being asked to contact Detective Gregory Mullarkey at 732-262-1120.

Bricktown Lew...please..be more of a part of the process. Otherwise you will just be a follower of what ever those elected make you do. have a say in your fate. By saying yo are neutral and a citizen of the world makes you look weak, and docile. I doubt there are any true supporters of you in this lifestyle here on this board. You are a representitive of who volunteers, that is for sure. We the people with exception of Lew vote for these people to look after certain affairs for the greater good of the people. Lew is happy to just let them take care of themselves and they be told where to stand. I would implore any young people not to follow Lews example. Things will improve here oncethese bungalows are crushed and things rebuilt to todays codes and standards. It might even bring in a higher class of people perhaps. I do agree that the back door lakewood deal the men in black are giving us, it is a major problem. Perhaps we could ask for a little zoning and code enforcement or maybe just tip our hats to our masters as would do Lew, and say thank you for dumping on me as I am helpless in your power.

Wow, WMS, your logic is amazingly pathetic. I think you are officially ready for political office!! I couldn't stop laughing after reading your last post! It was classic! It was hillarious that you said that by me not being a part of the political process that I am a follower?? Really?? So by NOT doing what millions do would make me a follower and weak?? Really?? So taking the same stand that others have taken in the past up to today that lead to them being executed, tortured, imprisoned, and inmates in concentration camps, you call me weak?? Really?? Because I refuse to jump on the political "bandwagon," I'm weak and a follower?? In World War II Germany, the people who were not Jewish, but German, that refused to fight for Hitler's army and were placed in concentration camps and executed were also " weak" because they refused to take part in the political machine?? Gotcha! Just save it. I'm not expecting anyone else to side on this site. It's not a popular view and takes more courage than just doing someone everyone else is doing. You, are not going to change me with your childish taunting. We're done here...

Ur all dumb.... dude prolly has insurance scam goin on or owed the wrong people. They didn't pull his damn name out a hat and go blaze his cars. As for our police, it don't matter who comes in and teaches them whatever because they are all either young n dumb or old and dumb. And we should MIND OUR OWN OWN OWN business and this stuff wouldn't happen. None of u belong on a watch or a politicians chair if u can't figure out y two cars were burned worry about who's stealing ur news paper that's a little easier. Stop people watching. Do dirt get dirt.

Written like a true, upstanding, law-abiding, citizen. Of course it was an insurance issue...
