Police are following up on leads in a case involving the burglaries of three cars parked outside daycare centers in Parsippany, New Jersey.
The suspect reportedly broke into all of the cars on the same day. The thefts occurred at the Learning Experience on Parsippany Boulevard, Apple Montessori on Littleton Road, and Bright Horizons on Dryden Way.
The suspect allegedly got inside two of the vehicles because the drivers failed to lock their doors; the third theft was made possible when the suspect allegedly smashed the driver’s side window.
Once the suspect gained access to the cars, he allegedly stole designer purses, an iPad, and a Kindle Fire.
According to authorities, the thefts were committed while the vehicle owners were dropping off their kids at the daycare centers.
Parsippany police are actively investigating the case and pursuing leads. Thus far, police do not have a description of the suspect.
Investigators believe that the suspect might have committed the thefts while driving a dark blue minivan. Additionally, police said that the vehicle might be registered out of New York. Police do not yet know the model of the vehicle.
If police are eventually able to identify and apprehend the suspect, it is likely that the suspect would face serious criminal charges for burglary and theft of movable property.
The Parsippany Police Department has asked that anyone information about the suspect or the alleged thefts please get in touch with investigators at 973-263-4311.
