NEW GAR­DEN >> Po­lice are look­ing for two peo­ple in con­nec­tion with the theft of jew­elry in two home bur­glar­ies in un­re­lated cases in New Gar­den Township. Po­lice are also in­ves­ti­gat­ing a res­i­den­tial bur­glary in which a half-mil­lion dol­lars in jew­elry, and a gun, were stolen.

In the first, $14,000 in jew­elry was taken from a res­i­dence in the

400 block of Line road in New Gar­den some­time last year. Af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice iden­ti­fied Tammy L. John­son, 32, of Kennett

Square as a sus­pect. She was stay­ing at the res­i­dence when the bur­glary oc­curred. Charges have been filed, and po­lice have is­sued a war­rant for John­son’s ar­rest.

Po­lice have been un­able to lo­cate John­son.

In the se­cond, a home lo­cated

at the 6000 block of Whit­ney Court in New Gar­den was forcibly en­tered, and jew­elry and elec­tron­ics worth an es­ti­mated $1,850 was stolen.

Fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice iden­ti­fied Miguel A. Mon­talvo, 34, of Cam­den, N.J. as a sus­pect. An ar­rest

war­rant was is­sued for Mon­talvo, but po­lice have been un­able to lo­cate him.

Po­lice say a half-mil­lion dol­lars in jew­elry and a gun and other items were stolen from a New Gar­den home on Oct. 19, and the sus­pect or sus­pects are still at large.

The stolen gun was re­cov­ered

af­ter it was sub­se­quently used in a shoot­ing in Wilm­ing­ton, De. That sus­pect is in cus­tody with au­thor­i­ties in Wilm­ing­ton. With the as­sis­tance from the Wilm­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment and the Delaware State Po­lice, ad­di­tional ar­rests have been made, search

war­rants have been ex­e­cuted, and a con­sid­er­able amount of the stolen jew­elry has been dis­cov­ered.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on ei­ther John­son or Mon­talvo should con­tact South­ern Ch­ester County Re­gional Po­lice at 610-2682907.
