Two Suspects Arrested for String of Burglaries in Fairfield NJ and Elsewhere in New Jersey

Fairfield New Jersey Burglary SuspectA New Jersey law enforcement task recently arrested two men who allegedly committed a string of burglaries through Essex County, Bergen County, and Passaic County.

The task force investigated the thefts for two months and eventually zeroed in on the suspects.

The Fairfield Police Department joined the task force in early February after a witness to a local burglary came forward and described the suspects’ vehicle. The burglary occurred at a home located on Henrietta Drive in Fairfield, NJ.

According to the Fairfield police chief, the burglary was just one in “a series of daytime residential burglaries” in Fairfield.

The task force caught a break in the investigation while conducting surveillance of a van driven by one of the suspects. Police observed a 46-year-old Union City man pick up a 33-year-old Clifton NJ man.

The two suspects drove to Englewood NJ, where police observed them in the process of “casing” homes for potential thefts. At some point, an alarm went off at the house. The suspects then drove to Tenafly NJ, where they reportedly cased more homes.

The suspects later returned to Englewood NJ, where they began to scope out another home. Police set up a perimeter around the suspects. When the suspects allegedly burglarized the residence, police moved in and arrested the two men.

Investigators believe that the suspects committed burglaries in Fairfield, Belleville, Verona, Englewood, Fair Lawn, Franklin Lakes, River Edge, and Totowa. Police believe that the suspects committed at least 12 burglaries, with four of the burglaries occurring in Fairfield.

Both suspects have been charged with burglary, attempted burglary, and possession of burglary tools. One of the suspects faces additional charges for theft of movable property.

After being arrested and processed, the suspects were transported to Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey.
