Police: Two Jailed In Connection With Burglaries

Pair arrested on Thursday in connection with burglaries in town, police said

Two West Belmar residents were arrested and charged with burglary and receiving stolen property after a three-week investigation into residential break-ins, police said Monday.

Chad K. Harlin, 27, and Larissa E. Reto, 22, -- both of 2nd Avenue in Wall -- were arrested March 10 at a third-floor apartment on 9th Ave. in Belmar, according to a release from Lt. Walter Pomphrey.

During the investigation, Harlin and Reto were identified through pawning various pieces of stolen property valued at approximately $25,000, Pomphrey said. The pair received about $5,000.00 cash from three pawn businesses, he said.

The break-ins occurred during daylight hours and the homes were unoccupied at the time of the burglaries, Pomphrey said.

Harlin was charged with two counts of 3rd degree burglary, two counts of third degree theft and receiving stolen property in the third degree. His bail was set at $35,000, Pomphrey said.

Reto was also charged with two counts each of third degree burglary and theft and two counts of receiving stolen property in the third degree. Her bail was set at $45,000, Pomphrey said.

The pair was taken to the Monmouth County Jail, Freehold Township, Pomphrey said. Harlin was no longer an inmate, but Reto remained jailed early Monday afternoon, according to jail records.

The police departments in Neptune City, Belmar and Eatontown assisted Wall Police, Pomphrey said.
