Brick Residents Arrested for Possessing Stolen Car

Car was stolen in Bayville, recovered in Toms River

A car stolen out of Berkeley Township was recovered midnight Sunday with three individuals charged with possession of the stolen Honda in Toms River.

The vehicle was found at 47 Walnut Street in Toms River that night, said Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy.

Charged with possessing the stolen car were Ansel Applewhite, 20, of Sawmill Road in Brick, Bobby Bullock, 18, of Primose Court in Brick and Imere Meredith, 19, of Fabo Court in Neptune.

Applewhite has previously been charged in an Aug. 2011 armed robbery on Sawmill Road and a March 2011 fight for disorderly conduct.

Bail was set at $2,500 cash for each. Berkeley Det. Joe Santoro assisted in the investigation.

A check of jail records showed none of the three were booked into the Ocean County Jail.

Brick PD has got to be more of a presence in these complexes. Until they are ready to be pro-active things will get worse. if it is a management thing then I hope someone will let us know so we can assist the PBA with getting more agressive people in place. This will bring down our property values and our life savings. The school system was just OK before, with these thugs it is worse. Someone from the PBA please tell us if the management is holding you back or what.

Can we stop saying "Brick residents" and start saying "Maple Leaf residents"? Sorry for the normal people that live there, but that place is the Wild West, it needs to be emptied and just start all over.

I agree. Most Brick residents are great people. We have a great community (shame its in New Jersey though) Its my opinion that the police does not have enough presence in that section of town. I do have knowledge about how the police dept works though. They work in districts. Officers patrol their districts and rarely go out of them unless there is an emergency. Each district has a certain number of officers and most are busy on calls. Very rarely is an officer not driving to a call or at a call. With the manpower the way it is they just don't have the resources to focus on one area such as Maple Leaf Park. They cannot spare the manpower. A lot of this is due to non emergency calls the police have to respond to. The only thing they can do is request a task force from the county or if its gang related the FBI but that rarely happens.

Either pay overtime, hire more people, or blow off the routine calls like a lost cell phone. Make those people come into HQ for reports. There is more than whatthe cops can do to repair this. Where is zoning and code enforcement. Where is the school system removing kids from the school who do not live here or are problems.
