Multiple Smash-and-Grab Incidents Occur at Parsippany Hotels

PARSIPPANY — During the bustling Thanksgiving weekend, Parsippany hotels, conveniently located near major routes like Route 46, Route 10, Route 280, Route 287, Route 53, and Route 80, become hotspots for family gatherings. However, this increased activity also attracts criminal activity.

Reports indicate a series of vehicle break-ins at local hotels. Specifically, the Parsippany Sheraton experienced 27 vehicle break-ins between 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. on Thursday. Additionally, the Parsippany Hilton and other hotels, including the Holiday Inn, Embassy Suites, Travel Lodge, Hyatt, and Sonesta Suites, were similarly victimized.

A spokesperson, who wished to remain anonymous, at the Parsippany Hilton confirmed there were 15 vehicle break-ins early Thursday morning.

Unconfirmed reports suggest as many as 100 vehicles were vandalized early Thursday morning.

One of the signs displayed at the Sheraton reads “If you are staying in the hotel and parking a vehicle, please register it at the reception desk, and you will receive a pass to display inside your vehicle, The nightly parking rate is $15. The hotel parking lot is monitored and non-registered vehicles are subject to towing immediately. Thank you for your cooperation.”

Yet another states “Park at your own risk. The hotel assumes no liability for loss or damage to vehicles or property.”
