Cape May cops searching for older woman allegedly involved in theft incident

If you do hear about crime in what some call New Jersey's most charming city, it's not too shocking to hear it has something to do with thievery of some kind. After all, shopping is one of the best activities Cape May has to offer, if I do say so myself. That's why I'm not too taken aback by this news. It makes sense that someone would try to pull a fast one at one of Cape May's adorable shops. Not saying it's the right thing to do, it's just not surprising to hear.

Police in Cape May have shared pictures of a woman to Facebook hoping someone might be able to identify her. They want to talk to her regarding an incident involving theft. They failed to give any more information nor how she's allegedly connected to the case.


She shouldn't be too hard to recognize. With that brightly-colored sweater and scarf that could probably be used as a towel right out of the shower (seriously... the thing's HUGE), she shouldn't be hard to spot.

If you have any information regarding this woman's identity, you're encouraged to reach out to Detective Shustack at 609-884-9503 or Of course, you may choose to remain anonymous.

The Cost Of Seasonal Parking Permits In Cape May County, NJ Shore Towns

Every Jersey Shore Town located in Cape May County now uses the ParkMobile App for parking, as every town has made the transition to Virtual Parking Meters. Some people do not want the hassle of using a Virtual App or paying for Meters. These people typically obtain Seasonal Parking Passes in order to park in the Coastal Communities from May through September.
Here is a breakdown of how much those Parking Permits are reported to cost in each Cape May County Shore Town. Small Municipalities such as West Wildwood and West Cape May do not have their own parking meters or Seasonal Parking Permits, so they are not listed below.
