Paramus NJ Police Arrest Man Accused of Burglarizing Stores at Strip Mall
The suspect allegedly committed the break-ins around 7:00 p.m. on July 6. Both burglaries occurred at business located in a strip mall on Route 17 southbound in Paramus, New Jersey. The suspect allegedly broke into the SuperJuice Nation and the Supercuts at the strip mall. It is also believed that the suspect broke into the PetValu store by smashing a glass door, but nothing was missing from the pet food and supplies shop.
The day after the break-ins, store employees contacted the Paramus Police Department. Paramus NJ detectives investigated and saw that the person responsible for the burglaries had gained access to the stores by breaking three storefront glass doors.
Once the suspect was inside the businesses, he allegedly found a way to open the cash registers and steal money. Additionally, the suspect reportedly stole a safe from SuperJuice Nation.
Paramus NJ police officers obtained video surveillance footage that reportedly shows the suspect committing the break-ins. Paramus police subsequently released pictures of the suspect and sent the images through a statewide all-points bulletin.
A Madison NJ police officer recognized the suspect as someone wanted for crimes in Madison, New Jersey.
The suspect was later apprehended by Newark NJ police on unrelated criminal charges.
When Paramus law enforcement learned about the suspect’s arrest in Newark, Paramus police officers went to Essex County to follow up on their investigation. Paramus NJ detectives then interviewed the suspect. During the interviews, the suspect reportedly admitted to committing the commercial burglaries.
