Authorities say a man from Morristown they say burglarized a beachfront home in Sea Girt and stole the tenants' vehicle and personal effects while they slept upstairs has been located and criminally charged.
According to authorities, Justin Leuzarder, 39, is charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree theft.
Police responded Aug. 15 around 5:30 a.m. to a home on the 700 block of Morven Terrace on a report of a burglary. The couple renting the home noted several items had been stolen, including electronics, cash, credit cards and the Audi A5 that had been parked in the driveway.
An investigation revealed a suspect, later identified as Leuzarder, entered the home through an unlocked rear door shortly after 2 a.m. The couple did not encounter Leuzarder during the course of the burglary and were uninjured.
Later in the morning, Leuzarder was taken into custody following a traffic stop in Denville.
The Audi and many of the stolen items were recovered and returned to their owners.
