SHIP BOTTOM, NJ - A recent burglary was reported in Ship Bottom.  Ship Bottom police are investigating a house burglary in which jewelry valued at approximately $3,500 was stolen last weekend.

Police Chief Paul Sharkey said that on Saturday, January 9 police received a call from a resident on the 300 block of West 10th Street.  “The person noticed that the house’s front door was open, and that did not look right since the homeowners were not going to be down that weekend,” said Sharkey.

The chief said the front door lock was broken.  “The suspect or suspects did a lot of rummaging through the one-story house,” he said.
