Paramus Police Arrest Two Suspected of Package Thefts in Ramsey NJ
Paramus police recently caught two people suspected of stealing packages from homes in Ramsey, New Jersey.
A 32-year-old Newark man and a 27-year-old Newark female are accused of swiping packages from the porches of several Ramsey houses.
Paramus detectives were working with the Paramus Police Department’s Anti-Crime Unit when they heard an alert on the police radio about the two suspected thieves. The alert indicated that the suspects had fled the scene of their most recent theft in a 2004 BMW X5.
The Paramus detectives were on the lookout for the vehicle near Garden State Parkway when they spotted the BMW heading south on Route 17. The officers then pulled over the vehicle.
When the officers approached the vehicle, they reportedly saw a number of stolen packages in the passenger compartment.
According to authorities, the male suspect already has a criminal record. He was reportedly arrested earlier this month after a Paramus police captain caught him with stolen packages. He was out on bail when the most recent arrest occurred.
Both suspects have now been charged with possession of stolen property. They will also likely face charges for theft of movable property.
After being arrested, the suspects were taken to the Bergen County Jail. The male suspect is being held at the facility on $25,000 bail, while the female suspect’s bail was set at $10,000.
