Burglary Charges in Englewood NJ
Police captured a fifth person accused of committing a burglary spree in Englewood, New Jersey.
The burglaries were reportedly carried out by a five-man crew. The suspects allegedly targeted numerous homes located along Route 17 in Englewood, NJ.
According to law enforcement officials, the suspects stole items such as jewelry and antiques worth more than $750K from one of the burglarized homes.
Detectives from a number of law enforcement agencies assisted with the investigation into the burglaries, including the Englewood Police Department, the Paramus Police Department, the Tenafly Police Department, the Saddle River Police Department, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Authorities were soon able to locate and apprehend four of the burglary suspects. The fifth suspect remained at large, but he was recently located in Englewood NJ and placed under arrest.
The suspects are from Bergen County municipalities, including Englewood, Hackensack, and South Hackensack. They all face numerous criminal charges for burglary and theft of movable property.
Burglary charges in New Jersey are governed by NJSA 2C:18-2 and are usually graded as third degree felony offenses. A third degree crime is punishable by 3-5 years in prison for each count (and in this case there will be a number of counts since the suspects are accused of burglarizing a number of homes).
