Two southern Ocean County men are tied to a car-burglary spree in Long Beach Township, and police are on the lookout for more connected incidents.

Rogers was also charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, and possession of items reported stolen from vehicles in Beach Haven.
