Sergeant Edmund Ailara and Officer Matthew McAuliffe and Joseph Kornas responded to an Old Bloomfield Avenue residence on Monday, September 30 at 1:14 p.m. to investigate a report of a burglary that had just occurred.
Upon their arrival at the home, the officers spoke with the resident who stated that he saw a silver convertible Ford Mustang parked in his driveway.
Two black males were standing near the vehicle and another black male wearing a red sweatshirt and black jeans and approx. 20 years old was exiting the window of his garage.
The suspects got into the Mustang and fled towards New Road. The entry into the garage appears to have been made through an unlocked window.
There did not appear to be anything missing from the garage and the living area of the home is not accessible from the interior of the garage.
A description of the vehicle and the suspects was transmitted to surrounding towns as well as the NJSP with negative results. While canvassing the area, Officer McAuliffe also found that an attempt was made to gain entry into another home on Warrior Way. A screen had been damaged, but entry into that home was not gained. Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Detective Joseph Puso at (973) 263-4315 or email us at Crime_Tips@parpolice.com.
