Montclair Police Investigate Burglary, Theft of $40K Watch

An area resident called police to report the theft of jewelry from their home. Police officers then responded to the scene at Yantacaw Brook Road in Montclair and investigated the incident.

It is believed that the burglar or burglars got away with a number of expensive jewelry items, including an 18k gold Patek Phillippe bracelet with a value of $38,000. The victim told police that he last saw the high-dollar watch sometime around Labor Day in early September.
