Accused Burglar Forged Checks, Police Say

Ocean Grove man to answer charges this week out of Eatontown, Shrewsbury

An Ocean Grove man will make two appearances in Superior Court this week to answer charges out of Eatontown and Shrewsbury.

Douglas J. Alderman, 53, remains jailed in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution after several arrests in recent weeks.

Eatontown police charge Alderman with breaking into a business at 615 Hope Road on July 16 and stealing numerous business and personal checks. Alderman then forged eight checks and deposited the funds into his personal account, police said.

He is charged with burglary, theft, forgery with purpose to defraud, uttering a forged instrument and theft by deception. Alderman is scheduled to make his first appearance on the charges at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

However, he first will have to answer a charge of theft by deception out of Shrewsbury on Tuesday morning.

Shrewsbury police said Alderman was arrested March 2 and accused of altering a stolen check to be able to deposit funds into his own account.

Alderman also was charged in recent months with identity theft and hindering his apprehension out of Oceanport.

Police said he provided a false identity when pulled over March 25 in Oceanport, in an attempt to evade capture.

Alderman has two convictions for theft by unlawful taking out of Monmouth County, in 2000 and 2005, according to court records.
