According to Morris County authorities, the car break-in was committed sometime between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on July 15, 2016. The victim parked his vehicle at Tourne County Park in Boonton Township, NJ. While the victim walked around the park, the suspects reportedly gained access to his car by breaking a door lock. Once the suspects got inside the vehicle, they allegedly stole a wallet containing a total of $60 in cash, as well as two personal credit cards.
Morris County Park police and Boonton Township NJ law enforcement investigated the burglary and theft and were able to track the stolen credit cards. On the same day as the theft, two suspects allegedly attempted to use the stolen credit cards at two retail stores: Macy’s and the Gap at the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, New Jersey. The next day, the suspects allegedly used the stolen credit cards to make fraudulent purchases at Macy’s in the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey.
Police investigated further and obtained security camera footage that reportedly shows the two suspects, a male and a female in their 30s, pushing a baby stroller inside one of the malls.
