Police Look for Suspects in Rash of Recent Home Burglaries Throughout Saddle Brook, NJ
Saddle Brook police are investigating a number of recent home burglaries and have warned local residents to be careful during the holidays.
The week before Christmas, police received reports of four different burglaries at residences in Saddle Brook, New Jersey. All of the burglaries occurred on the same night, leading authorities to believe that the break-ins may have been committed by the same culprits.
The Saddle Brook Police Department issued a press release indicating that the locations of the burglaries were homes on 2nd Street, 8th Street, Harrison Street, and Saddle River Road. The suspects reportedly got away with various items, including expensive electronics and other valuables.
When law enforcement investigated the burglary reports, they reportedly came across signs of forced entries into each of the homes.
At this time, police have not yet identified a suspect in any of the burglaries. If investigators do eventually nab a suspect for the thefts, it is likely that serious criminal charges would follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2, burglary is typically classified as a third degree felony. A conviction for third degree burglary could result in a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
While law enforcement looks into the recent thefts, the Saddle Brook Police Department has advised residents to “keep a vigilant watch for any suspicious persons, vehicles, and/or activities” in the area. Anyone who notices suspicious individuals around local residences should immediately contact the police.
