Newark NJ Man Arrested, Accused of Burglaries in Union, West Orange

Newark New Jersey Burglary AttorneysPolice in Union Township NJ recently arrested a man who allegedly committed three burglaries at local homes last summer.

According to Union police, the 49-year-old suspect burglarized three homes between July 25 and August 6. The suspect, who lives in Newark NJ, allegedly broke into homes on Bushnell Street, Balmoral Avenue, and Berkshire Drive in Union Township, New Jersey.

The suspect reportedly used a similar modus operandi to gain access to the homes: he entered each of the houses through a ground floor window.

Once inside the homes, the suspect allegedly stole cash and jewelry.

Additionally, the burglaries were reportedly carried out while the residents were home. At the time of the burglaries, the residents were either asleep in their beds or preparing to go to sleep.

According to a police statement, one of the attempted thefts was thwarted when the suspect entered a bedroom while the resident was still awake. The suspect, who was reportedly surprised to encounter the victim, immediately fled the scene.

Union Township police investigated the burglaries and found evidence suggesting that the same person had carried out all three offenses. Moreover, investigators were able to link all three burglaries to the suspect.

Police eventually tracked down the suspect at his residence in Newark, New Jersey. Members of the Union Police Street Crimes Unit placed the suspect under arrest without incident.

Police said that the suspect later spoke with investigators and confessed to having committed all three burglaries.

After being arrested, the suspect was charged with three counts of burglary.

The suspect was also linked to another burglary in West Orange NJ. Union Township police spoke with West Orange detectives, who then determined that the suspect had committed a burglary in West Orange NJ around the same time as the Union burglaries.

The suspect is currently being held in Union County Jail on a $150,000 bail amount.
