On December 9, 2016, a second subject was arrested in connection with the rash of senior community burglaries that occurred over the past month.

Patrick Frew, a 28 year old male from Buena Visa Drive, Berkeley Township was arrested when he arrived home by members of the Manchester Township Investigations Bureau.  Patrick Frew’s arrest was the culmination of a month long investigation by the Manchester Police Patrol and Investigations Bureaus. The Manchester Police were assisted by members of the Berkeley Township Police Department and the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department Crime Scene Investigations Unit.  Patrick Frew was charged with one count of burglary and one count of theft.  The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are anticipated for Mr. Frew.

He was subsequently transported to the Ocean County Jail in default of $15,500.00 bail. In addition to the Manchester Police charges, Frew also had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Monmouth County.
