We are currently receiving a very large number of calls from people who have had items stolen from sheds and did not report to police, or, are just now realizing they had items stolen from their sheds. Many of these people live outside of Middlesex Township and are calling Middlesex to report the break in. If you do not live in Middlesex Township you must call the police department responsible for your township or borough. While we are happy to make arrangements with you to see if your stolen items were recovered we CANNOT take a theft report for something that happened in a different jurisdiction. If you plan to come to Middlesex to recover items please bring along your list of stolen items and all serial numbers associated with the items that were taken. Many of the items stolen were tools, all of which carry a serial number. We will do our best to return your items in a timely manner, however, due to the sheer number of individuals calling and the staggering amount of recovered items it may take some time.
