Authorities are investigating a possible burglary at a gas station in Parsippany, New Jersey.
After an alarm was set off at the Exxon gas station on Route 10, police officers were dispatched to the scene. When officers got there, they saw that the glass door to the station’s convenience door was shattered.
According to police, the suspects entered through the broken door. The suspects then allegedly took money from the cash registers and stole an undisclosed number of cigarette packages. Police have not revealed how much money was taken in the theft.
The Parsippany Township Police Department is actively investigating the burglary.
If a suspect is eventually identified and then caught, they could be subject to significant penalties. That’s because N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2 classifies burglary as a third degree felony. Anyone convicted of third degree burglary could be sentenced to a term of 3–5 years in New Jersey State Prison.
While Parsippany Township police investigate the incident, they have asked that anyone with information about the theft contact investigators at 973-263-4300.
