Newark NJ Police Investigate Series of Thefts from Motor Vehicles

Newark New Jersey Theft ChargesNewark NJ police are investigating a recent series of thefts from cars parked on city streets.

According to law enforcement, all of the thefts were likely committed by the same individual. The suspect allegedly broke into a number of motor vehicles that were parked on Morris Avenue in Newark, New Jersey.

After the most recent theft, Newark NJ detectives were able to obtain video surveillance photographs of the suspect walking near the car. In the hopes of spurring the investigation, police released the surveillance photos of the suspect.

At this time, authorities have yet to identify the suspect. If police can eventually determine the identity of the suspect and apprehend him, he would likely face criminal charges for theft of movable property.

Depending on the value of the items stolen, the suspect could be in store for significant criminal penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3(a), anyone who unlawfully takes property with a value in excess of $500 can be charged with a third degree crime. A conviction on third degree theft of movable property charges could result in a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.

The Newark Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance with the investigation. Anyone who has information about the suspect or the theft incidents should call the Newark Police CrimeStoppers tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
