Lake Hiawatha Resident Experienced an Attempted Break-in at a Residence and Vehicle

PARSIPPANY — An attempted home and vehicle break-in were captured on a Ring camera, this morning, Friday, January 5 at approximately 4:40 a.m. The suspects attempted from multiple entrances before fleeing.

This occurred in the lower Lake Hiawatha area, in the Vail Road vicinity.

If you see any suspicious activity, don’t hesitate to contact the Parsippany Police Department at (973) 263-4300.

Attempted break-in

Additional Information from Parsippany Police Department

During the early morning hours of January 5th, we had two different attempts to gain entry into residences within our Township. We believe the goal during each burglary attempt was to steal high-end vehicles from their driveways.

At approximately 4:20 a.m., a male attempted to break into a residence on Old Bloomfield Avenue through a front window. The occupants woke up due to the noise created by the suspect at which time they turned on their interior lights and activated the alarm system. The suspect fled the area and the victim immediately called 911.

At approximately 4:29 a.m., a male was observed on CCTV footage attempting to gain entry to an Audi parked at a residence on Winfield Drive. When the suspect could not get into the locked vehicle, he attempted to gain entry into the home through the rear door of the house. The suspect fled when the occupants inside the house woke up.

It is believed both incidents involved the same suspect. During the second attempt, the homeowner delayed reporting the incident. The Police Department must be notified as soon as possible so officers can effectively search the area immediately after an incident for suspect(s).

These incidents are currently under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact (973) 263-4300 and speak with a Detective.
