Halloween heist solved in Middlesex and Somerset counties
A Halloween heist that perplexed FAMAs Nursery owner Anna Fama has been solved.
A few weeks ago things started disappearing from the store twice a week. Thieves were coming in the middle of the night and taking inflatable decorations, pumpkins, hay bails and straw.
Fama says she knew that for the amount of things being taken, the items had to be a party at Rutgers. Sure enough, she found most of the stolen property down at the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity house. The students were given the choice to pay the $1,500 for the stolen goods or do some jail time. The students now own what is in their yard.
The TKE fraternity was also caught with merchandise from a resident in South Brunswick. Police confiscated those items Friday and returned them to their owner. No charges were filed.
