Newark NJ Man Accused of Stealing $130K Worth of Equipment in Jersey City

Newark New Jersey Burglary AttorneysA Newark New Jersey man faces criminal charges for theft and burglary after he allegedly broke into properties in Jersey City and stole equipment.

According to Jersey City officials, the thefts occurred on at least three occasions.

The first theft reportedly went down on February 21, 2016. The suspect is said to have unlawfully entered a lot located on the 600 block of Monmouth Street in Jersey City, New Jersey. The suspect allegedly stole a trailer generator from the lot, with the generator valued at $65,000.

The second theft allegedly happened on March 6. The suspect reportedly broke into a lot located on the 700 block of Tonnelle Avenue and stole a trailer generator worth $46,000.

The third theft occurred on March 13, with the suspect allegedly stealing a trailer compressor from a lot located on the 1000 block of Secaucus Road.

The suspect, a 38-year-old male who lives on Garside Street in Newark, NJ, was charged with multiple crimes, including theft of movable property and burglary. He faces three counts on each criminal charge, which means that the penalties for conviction could be severe.

As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3, anyone who steals more than $75,000 worth of property can be charged with a second degree felony. A conviction for second degree theft of movable property could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison. Additionally, the suspect could be ordered to pay heavy monetary fines, as well as restitution for the allegedly stolen property.

After being arrested and processed, the suspect was taken to the Hudson County Jail. He was being held at the correctional facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.
