Police in Kinnelon NJ are trying to find a man who allegedly burglarized a local Dunkin’ Donuts shop.
According to authorities, the suspect illegally gained access to the donut shop and stole a safe filled with money.
Detectives with the Kinnelon Police Department conducted an investigation into the theft crime and determined that the suspect got inside the Route 23 store by first breaking into an adjacent store. Once the suspect was inside the other building, he reportedly cut a hole through the drywall and then pulled the safe through the hole.
The safe weighed between 100 pounds and 200 pounds. This is why the suspect had to use a motor vehicle to take the safe from the scene. According to law enforcement, the suspect stole a 1994 Dodge truck that was parked outside the Dunkin’ Donuts.
Store surveillance cameras captured the break-in, but the suspect was able to conceal his identity by covering his face. If investigators eventually apprehend the suspect, he would likely be charged with burglary and theft of movable property.
