Fourth Burglary of a Wyckoff Home in 10 Days
Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox issued an advisory on Friday, asking residents to be “the eyes and ears” of the community to aid the police in preventing crime. This request comes after a fourth burglary of a township home in 10 days.
Fox said in a press release that two unidentified men wearing facemasks were caught on surveillance video kicking open the front door of a Bridle Path home on Thursday. Once inside the home, the men ripped the alarm system and siren wiring from the walls in order to evade detection. They proceeded to loot the master bedroom of the home and take jewelry before fleeing.
This marks the fourth such burglary in Wyckoff recently, with three other township homes having been burglarized in the period between October 13 and October 15. As such, Chief Fox asks residents to report any activity they think is suspicious. “The eyes and ears of an entire town can assist the police in apprehending burglars who invade the privacy of homes and steal property,” Fox said in the press release.
If the suspects are caught and convicted of burglary, they could face penalties of up to 10 years in New Jersey State Prison on each count as well as fines up to $150,000, depending on the particular facts of the case.
