Newark NJ Police Search for Suspect in Home Burglary

Newark NJ Burglary SuspectNewark NJ police have identified a suspect in a home burglary committed in May 2015.

According to authorities, the burglary occurred at a residence located on the 100 block of Lehigh Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. When the victim returned to her home, she saw that it had been broken into and burglarized.

The victim walked to her neighbor’s home to dial 911 and notify the Newark Police Department. As the woman walked back to her house, she saw the suspect standing in the driveway. The victim said that the suspect was holding some of her possessions.

Before the suspect fled the scene, the victim was able to use her cell phone to take a photograph of him.
