Six Cars Keyed in Hazlet, On The Last Day of School
The cars were parked on Concord Drive, across from Raritan High.
The owners of six cars reported their vehicles were "keyed" on June 13 while parked on Concord Drive in Hazlet, off Middle Road. The criminal mischief occurred sometime between 8 am. and noon, police said.
Concord Drive is located directly across Middle Road from Raritan High School. On June 13, the last day of school, high school students were dismissed at noon and the 8th grade graduation ceremony was held there at 2 p.m.
Police said the key scratches were deep in length and appear on both sides of the cars.
Parking on Concord Drive is permitted, as long as it is not in front of a hydrant or in the nearby cul-de-sac, which has parking restrictions. Residents have complained to police in the past about issues related to high schoolers parking in the area because they don't have permits to park on campus, said Det. Lt. Charles McBride.
Police could not say if the operators of the six cars were high school students.
Hazlet Police are investigating, and ask anyone with information to call them at 732-264-6565.
