Investigators said that over the past few months, "numerous reports of burglaries and attempted burglaries into vehicles" were made in the central New Jersey town.
A nearby resident caught a female suspect on surveillance video trying to break into their vehicle on two separate dates in January, police said.
On Feb. 1, an officer "observed [Hilsman] with the same distinguishable clothing" walking toward a driveway in the area. She "was found to be in possession of numerous burglary tools, including a screw driver, hammer and the same flashlight seen on the surveillance videos."
Hilsman was taken into custody for burglary, criminal trespass and possession of burglary tools, according to police. She was transported to a correctional facility and a court date is pending.
