Toms River Police Make an Arrest in Krauszer’s Robbery
Toms River police have arrested 29-year-old Township resident Matthew Reyes in connection with Thursday night’s robbery of the Krauszer’s on the corner of Hooper Avenue and James Street.
Authorities say Reyes was taken into custody without incident Saturday at the nearby Jamestown Apartments after police officers Samantha Sutter and Brent Mundy were assigned to the area and developed information that led to the suspect.
Police say Reyes entered the Krauszer’s around 5:30 p.m. Thursday and demanded money. No weapon was seen and he fled on a bicycle without getting any money.
The arresting officers were James Stripko and Jason Stallworth. Reyes is charged with robbery and was being held in the Ocean County jail on $75,000 bail.
Detectives Louis Santora and Jen Grob investigated the incident and are looking into whether Reyes was involved in robberies at Carter’s, Subway and Dunkin Donuts, according to the Asbury Park Press.
