WILDWOOD CREST — A Cape May County woman was charged earlier this month with burglarizing a borough home.

At 1:26 a.m. July 12, police went to a home on Lavender Road after a report of a burglary and theft, according to a post on the Police Department’s Facebook page.

Police identified Heather Reece as a suspect with help from residents, police said, and she was implicated in several other burglaries in nearby municipalities. Reece, 42, was arrested later that day by Avalon police. Reece was charged with burglary and theft and was taken to the Cape May County jail.

Detectives from Wildwood Crest, with help from the Avalon and Lower Township police departments, recovered most of the items that were missing from the victim’s home.
