Jackson maintenance worker who stole from Jackson Twenty-One residents sentenced

JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ – Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer has affirmed the sentencing of Troy Jones, a 59-year-old Jackson Township resident, to 364 days in jail as part of three years of probation.

This judgment was handed down on May 31 by the Honorable Dina M. Vicari, JSC, in connection with charges of burglary and theft dating back to an incident on December 22, 2021.

Jones was convicted on March 20, 2024 after a nearly two-week jury trial led by Judge Vicari. The charge stems from a burglary at a home in the Gardens at Jackson Twenty-One apartment complex.

According to police reports, Jones, who worked as a maintenance worker at the complex, used a master key to enter a residence and steal $4,500 in cash, along with an Apple Watch.

Following an investigation by the Jackson Township Police Department Detective Bureau, Jones was charged with burglary and theft on January 12, 2022, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He surrendered the next day at the Jackson Township Police Department, accompanied by his attorney, and was initially released under New Jersey’s Bail Reform laws.
