On the same day, another Parsippany police officer responded to a Philip Drive residence in Parsippany. The officer was responding to a burglar alarm at the home that had been activated. When the police officer got to the scene, he found that the front door had been forced open and the deadbolt lock had been broken.
Later that evening, Parsippany police responded to a burglary report at an Alan Drive home in Parsippany. The resident of the home told police that the rear door had been forced open. Although the bedroom had been ransacked, no items were reported missing.
