Nicholas Tracy, 22, of Beachwood, was sentenced to 5 years in prison today in connection with a series of residential burglaries that resulted in the loss of more than $300,000 in jewelry and other personal items, Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni announced.

The sentence is related to three residential break-ins including, among other residences, the home of Jon Bon Jovi.

The charges arose from an investigation conducted by the Middletown Police Department
involving a series of residential burglaries in the Navesink River Road area that occurred on
March 14th, April 1st and April 3rd of 2011.

In each incident, entry was made into the homes and a significant amount of personal property was taken, mostly in the form of jewelry. On April 13, 2011, the Middletown Police responded to yet another report of a burglary and located Tracy in the residence in the midst of committing the crime. Tracy was arrested and further investigation led to the recovery of some of the stolen property.

Tracy had previously pleaded guilty September 4, 2012 to three counts of theft, each graded as second-degree crimes, and one count of burglary, a third-degree
crime.
