Madison New Jersey police are asking for the public’s help as they try to locate suspects accused of committing three home burglaries.
All three residential burglaries were committed within a two-week period. According to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office, the suspects entered the homes and stole money and personal items.
The first burglary attempt went down on June 17 at a house on Ridgedale Avenue in Madison, NJ. The suspects reportedly smashed a window pane on a door located at the rear of the home. However, after the suspect broke the window, they reportedly ran off and fled the area without getting inside the house.
The second burglary occurred on the same night, with the suspects allegedly gaining access to an apartment located on Cook Avenue in Madison, New Jersey. Authorities believe that the suspects were able to get inside the apartment by climbing a fire escape and then smashing a window. The suspect allegedly stole possessions and cash from the apartment.
The third burglary was committed a couple of weeks later at a house located on Woodland Road in Madison, NJ. The suspects allegedly gained entry to the house by using a side-door entrance. The suspects allegedly “ransacked” the home and stole expensive jewelry that is said to have a value of thousands of dollars.
If Madison NJ police can eventually identify and capture the suspects, the culprits would probably face criminal charges for burglary and theft of movable property. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2, burglary is usually classified as a third degree crime. A conviction for third degree burglary could result in a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
Madison NJ law enforcement is currently investigating the burglaries and thefts. Anyone with information about the suspects should contact the Morris County CrimeStoppers tip line at973-267-2255 or 800-743-7433.
