Vehicle Break-In Leads to Arrest of Suspect in Stolen BMW Case

PARSIPPANY – On the morning of Sunday, November 26 at approximately 6:23 a.m. a resident on Rita Drive reported that they observed a dark sedan drop off a person dressed in black and the individual was pulling on vehicle door handles attempting to gain entry.

As patrol officers began to check the surrounding area for the vehicle and person, Ptl. Hughes observed a 2022 BMW x7 exiting a driveway on Sedgefield Drive and leaving the area.

He also observed a dark-colored Kia with its headlights off slowly moving away from the residence the BMW x7 left.

Officers conducted a motor vehicle stop on the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Nacosh Crawford, 21, West Orange.

A check of the temporary license plate affixed to the vehicle showed that it was reported stolen by the Newark Police Department.

While on the scene, officers contacted the residents where the BMW x7 exited. They advised that their house was burglarized moments earlier and the keys to the vehicle were stolen, as well as the vehicle.

Mr. Crawford was placed under arrest and transported to Parsippany Police Headquarters. He was charged on a Complaint Warrant with the following criminal offenses:
• 2nd Degree Theft of a Motor Vehicle
• 3rd Degree Conspiracy to Commit Burglary
• 3rd Degree Exhibiting a False Government Document
• Receiving Stolen Property, a Disorderly Person Offense

He was further charged with the following traffic offenses:
• Unsealed Cannabis in a Motor Vehicle
• Failure to Inspect a Motor Vehicle
• Improper Display/Unclear Plates
• Obstruction of Windshield

He was transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility. After the defendant’s initial appearance, he was released from the Morris County Correctional Facility in accordance with bail reform.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to email or call (973) 263-4300.

Editors Note: A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite these accusations, the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
