East Hanover NJ law enforcement is searching for a man who allegedly stole multiple vehicles last week. Now authorities are offering a $1,000 cash reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to an arrest in the theft case.
The first theft happened during the morning hours of May 2, 2017. According to Morris County CrimeStoppers, the suspect began his crime spree by stealing a red 2006 Chrysler Town & Country van parked on a road in Boonton Township, NJ.
The suspect then reportedly drove the vehicle to a business located in East Hanover, parked the van, and stole a white 2005 GMC 5500 truck.
Not long after that, the suspect allegedly arrived in East Hanover and stole another motor vehicle: a dark gray Toyota Camry.
The East Hanover Police Department and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office are conducting a joint investigation into the auto thefts and attempting to determine the suspect’s identity. Detectives obtained video surveillance images of the suspect allegedly committing one of the vehicle thefts.
If police can eventually identify and capture the suspect, he would probably be charged with multiple counts of auto theft and theft of movable property.
