Morristown NJ police are investigating a series of daytime burglaries.
Police believe that several houses on Erskine Drive and James Street may have been entered into illegally last month. The burglar or burglars may have entered some of the homes through unlocked doors.
Police indicated that none of the residents were in the homes when they were burglarized.
Police officers canvassed the area shortly after the burglaries were reported, but the searches did not turn up any suspects.
Police have encouraged local residents to lock their doors and windows when leaving their homes.
Burglary in NJ is addressed by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2. Burglary is typically classified as a third degree criminal offense. This means that if the burglar or burglars in these cases are caught, they could be sentenced to up to five (5) years in NJ State Prison.
