Man Faces Burglary Charges in Teaneck NJ, Already Serving Time in Prison
A man who is already in prison for committing multiple burglaries in Bergen County has been charged with two more burglaries in Teaneck, NJ.
The 39-year-old suspect, who is from North Carolina, was busted by Teaneck police officers on October 20, 2014. The suspect was captured in Englewood New Jersey after committing a series of burglaries throughout the area.
At the time of his arrest, the suspect reportedly had a number of stolen items in his vehicle. According to officials, the stolen goods included jewelry, coins, and electronic devices like a 60-inch television.
After the suspect was sentenced to two 4-year sentences in state prison for the earlier burglaries, police continued to investigate the suspect and eventually connected him to two more break-ins. Investigators used forensic evidence from one burglary site to link the suspect.
As a result of the new evidence, the suspect has been charged with multiple counts of burglary and theft of movable property. Additionally, the suspect has been charged with criminal mischief because he allegedly damaged one of the homes when he cut through the walls and stole copper pipes.
According to authorities, the suspect could be subject to more criminal charges if investigators can connect him to any other burglaries in Bergen County, New Jersey.
