    What to Know

    • Shana Hilsman, of Old Bridge, was arrested earlier this month in connection with a month-long probe into car burglaries and break-ins

    • Police say her clothing matched the attire worn by a female suspect in two surveillance videos a resident provided to authorities

    • It wasn't clear if she voiced any comment on her arrest, but her mug shot certainly appears to convey how she feels about it

    A New Jersey woman may be an early contender for mug shot of the year.

    Shana Hilsman, of Old Bridge, was arrested this month on charges of burglary and criminal tresspass in connection with a month-long investigation into a string of reported car burglaries and attempted break-ins on the same road in Spotswood.

    She matched the clothing description provided by a resident who had surveillance video of a woman allegedly trying to break into a vehicle on Jan. 13 and again two weeks later, authorities say. 

    When cops ran into Hilsman on Feb. 1, they allegedly found her with multiple burglary tools, including a screwdriver, hammer and a flashlight that appeared to be the same one seen in the resident's surveillance footage, authorities say. 

    She was arrested and taken to a corrections center with a pending court date. It's not immediately clear if Hilsman had an attorney, nor was it clear if she voiced any comment on her arrest (though her mug shot may hint at how she feels about it).
