Mount Police New Jersey police are investigating the reported burglary of an Oakwood Village apartment.
On December 8, the 30-year-old resident of an apartment at building 63 in the Oakwood Village apartment complex reported a burglary. When police officers responded, the resident told them that he had been away from home for roughly a week. When the resident came back, he saw that his front door appeared to have been forced open.
