Police Arrest Man Accused of Stealing Expensive Cheese from Moonachie NJ Business
Police in Moonachie NJ recently arrested a Paterson man accused of stealing $160,000 worth of imported cheese.
The theft incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. According to authorities, the suspect stole the expensive cheese products from Grace Kennedy Foods, which is located at 230 Moonachie Avenue in Moonachie, New Jersey. The suspect allegedly broke into the food distribution facility, went to the storage area, and stole numerous pallets of cheese that had been imported from Jamaica.
The stolen cheese product, known as Tastee Cheese, is advertised as a Jamaican cheese that tastes best when paired with crackers.
The Moonachie Police Department investigated the theft and initially believed that multiple people had broken into the building. However, authorities later determined that the break-in was committed by just one person.
The suspect is an 18-year-old man who lives in Paterson, NJ. He has been charged with several crimes, including theft of movable property, burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary, and possession of burglary tools.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. He was being held at the jail on a $150K bail amount, with no 10-percent cash option available for posting bail.
