Lyndhurst NJ Man Allegedly Tried to Burglarize House in Ocean County
Police arrested a Lyndhurst NJ man in connection with an alleged burglary attempt at a Manchester New Jersey residence.
The break-in occurred around 5:00 a.m. at a house located on Molly Pitcher Boulevard. The burglarized residence is part of the Crestwood Village 4 area of Manchester, NJ.
According to law enforcement, two men tried to enter the Manchester home by removing exterior screens from the windows. When that failed, the men allegedly smashed open a window by throwing a large rock. Someone inside the house heard a noise and dialed 911 to alert local police.
A Manchester cop responded to the area and learned the name of one of the suspects. After conducted several interviews, investigators identified both suspects in the burglary.
Police later arrested one of the suspects. That suspect, a 19-year-old Lyndhurst resident, faces criminal charges for criminal attempt-burglary.
The other suspect in the break-in will likely be charged with criminal attempt-burglary and criminal mischief.
Police are still searching for the other man allegedly involved in the Manchester NJ burglary attempt. That suspect has been identified as a 23-year-old resident of Beachwood in Ocean County, New Jersey.
The Lyndhurst suspect is currently being held at the Ocean County Jail on a $2,500 bail amount.
