Montville Township police are investigating the apparent burglary of a Pine Brook apartment in which a purse and credit cards were reported stolen on Jan. 16.
Capt. Rudy Appelmann said the value of the purse is about $200, including items inside that were taken.
Police responded to Rachel Gardens to investigate and Appelmann said officers saw pry marks on the front door of the apartment. The purse appeared to be the only thing missing from the residence and the residents said they were out of the apartment for about an hour between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Chase Bank had contacted the resident whose purse was taken to alert her of suspicious charges on her credit card.
Appelmann said police took photos at the scene and canvassed the area, but no arrests were made.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact police at 973-257-4300.
