Neptune Man Charged in Robbery of Victim Returning from Monmouth Park Racetrack


One of three men suspected of being responsible for the robbery of a Keyport man who was coming home with a large sum of cash he won at Monmouth Park Racetrack was arrested Tuesday, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

Officials say, Mr. Telquan Adams, 26, of Neptune Township, was later identified as one of the men who committed the robbery in August 2019.

Adams is now facing charges of second-degree Robbery.

Keyport Police Department responded to a residence on Broad Street on August 29, 2019, following up on a report that a robbery had just occurred.

Arriving officers found the victim, a 44-year-old borough man, with minor injuries.

The victim reported he was attacked by three males after arriving home from the William Hill Sports Book at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport.

The victim declined medical attention.

A joint investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and Keyport Police Department revealed the victim arrived in the borough in the area of his house and was attacked by at least three men who stole from him a large amount of money he had just won at the sportsbook establishment.

The investigation remains active and ongoing with additional arrests forthcoming, but investigators are still looking for assistance from the public and urge anyone with information to contact Detective Ramon Camacho of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 800-533-7443 of Detective Kevin Bennett of Keyport Police Department at 732-264-0706.
