Crime Scene Middletown: Local Crime Statistics Mirror County’s But Appear To Be On The Rise For 2011

The Asbury Park Press has an article posted about the rising crime rate for Monmouth and Ocean Counties. It states that according to the NJ State Police Uniform Crime Report for 2010 incidents of major crime( violent crimes of murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault, and the nonviolent crimes of burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft) rose by 7% in Ocean County and 4% in Monmouth County in the year following 2009.

Seeing how I reside in Middletown, which has a population of 67,000 residents spreadout over 42 square miles, I am not really interested in what is happening in Ocean County, I’m more interested in what’s happening closer to home.

According to the APP article:

In Monmouth County, most categories of violent crime remained stable, although aggravated assaults fell 11 percent. The increase in overall major crimes in Monmouth County was partly attributable to a 6.5 percent uptick in the number of burglaries, from 2,528 to 2,694.

Monmouth County saw a 24 percent jump in the number of arrests for the sale or manufacture of drugs, from 455 to 562

After reading the full article it made me a bit curious about what has been going on in Middletown over this same time period, what I found locally seems to have mirrored what happened county wide.

In Middletown, while the crime index for 2010 rose a mere 0.84% over the 2009 index (12.39 vs 13.23), the incidents of Part I Crimes (Murder, Rape, Robbery, Agg. Assault,Burglary, Larceny, Auto Theft, Arson) rose 5.2% (2009/828 vs 2010/873) and the incidents of Part II Crimes (Simple Assaut,Forgery, Fraud, Embezzlement,Vandalism, Weapons, Other Sex Offenses, Disorderly Conduct and Other) rose 13% (2009/4454 vs 2010/5111).

I found this information posted on the Middletown Township website posted under the Police Department link for the year to date Crime Stats. I’ve been keeping an eye on these statistics for most of the year, after I discovered them posted on the Township website a number of months ago. The stat sheet compares the crime index and incidents of crime in Middletown going back to 2002 and has been recently updated to include incidents of crime through October 2011.

Looking at the reported numbers thus far for 2011, it seems that the crime rate in Middletown will be somewhat higher than it was in 2010. With two months left to report crime statistics, Part I type crimes total 690 while Part II type crimes total 3932. Interestingly (or not), the arrest rate is also up over last year thus far (1599),which I suppose should be expected given the increase in incidents.

Calls for service is also up sharply and should exceed last years total of 45,587 which is staggering to me when you consider how understaffed Middletown’s Police Department is,on the flip side of that however, is that the number of summonses written thus far this year. It seems that summonses issued should also top the total of 6,473 that were issued in 2010.

Given the numbers, I think members of Middletown’s Police Department should be commended for the hard work and effort they give keeping us all safe during this time of increased criminal activity.

Residents are quick to criticize when response times are slow or when they see a police car parked on the side of the road with an officer just sitting there seeming to be doing nothing and are slow to give credit for a job well done under stressful circumstances.

Another daytime robbery in Lincroft!!! Beware! — White Oak Ridge Road

Evidently there was yet another daytime burglary in the Lincroft/Oak Hill section of Middletown yesterday. I was forwarded the email below from someone who received it earlier today.

Unless an arrest is made in this case, you wont read about this burglary in any news report or Police Blotter as it is the policy of the Middletown Police department not to announce any information unless the perpetrators of the crime are first apprehended.

Let this be a warning to all residents that even though, when you leave your house witht he doors locked, do not leave money or possible other valuables laying around in plain sight (not that this was the case in this instance). It only take a few minutes for someone to ransack and rummage through a home, you don’t want to make it any easier for the theft than you have to.

Remain vigilant and keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles or individuals in your neighborhood and don’t hessitate to call the police, friends or neighbors if you have questions or concerns about anything that looks out of place in the area.

Subject: Another Robbery

Hello Friends – I am sorry you have to keep receiving these emails, but I wanted to let you know OUR house was robbed today. They had a very small window of opportunity, from about 12:30 until 1:15. When I pulled up our driveway I noticed our front door was wide open. So the first thing that went thru my head was “those darn cleaning ladies!” I have been using them for years, they come once a month, and I was home when they arrived today at 10:30. They also let themselves out around 12:30 thru the garage and close it by pressing a button (no codes or anything).

So when I saw the front door I immediately thought our indoor cats may have gotten out so I ran thru the front door and was calling for them – – went upstairs and that’s when i noticed all the contents of my “unmentionables ” drawers were dumped on the floor. I have another set of drawers in my closet but that appears to have not been touched. I immediately called the police and they told me to get out asap .

THANKFULLY, due to all of the other incidents we have been hearing about (The Totilos, Hubbard Ave., ) we have been taking precautions and most of our valuables are in a safe, and I only keep about $40 in cash upstairs – which they found. They took ALL of my costume jewelry and unfortuately a few sentimental diamond pieces that I frequently wear, I just wasnt wearing them today, unfortunately. Other than that, it looks like they didn’t even make it into the girls’ bedrooms (computers/cameras/ipods all in full view) and nothing else was touched in the house. They gained entry by kicking in our door that is in the back of the garage – it was bolted/locked but the whole thing came off the wall. The detective was able to lift a big footprint off of it. From there the robber(s) let himself in thru our mudroom door which is always unlocked.

I am telling you all these details because hopefully you can make some adjustments in your lifestyles which can prevent anything like this from happening to you. I actually had the name of our alarm co. on my “to do ” list today because one of our zones has been a little funky. THe police also mentioned that they think these guys are related to the Totilo incident and have “quite a few leads”. Let’s hope they get them soon, and I am thanking God we are all safe.
