Police officers recently arrested two New Jersey men who allegedly committed a burglary spree in Morris County and Union County, NJ.
According to authorities, the suspects burglarized houses in Butler, Hanover, Kenilworth, Pequannock, and Riverdale.
Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted a joint investigation into the property crimes. The investigation led to police conducting surveillance on a house located in Butler, NJ.
During surveillance of the residence, Morris County detectives reportedly saw the suspects leaving the house. Police took a closer look and noticed a hole in a window of the home, which is believed to be how the suspects gained access to the home.
Police officers pursued the suspects as they drove a Chevy Tahoe through Butler and Pequannock. The suspects eventually crashed the vehicle into the front yard of a Pequannock house. One of the suspects allegedly attempted to flee on foot, but officers quickly captured him.
The suspects, a 32-year-old Hanover man and a 30-year-old Paterson man, have been charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft of movable property, and receiving stolen property. One of the suspects also faces criminal charges for resisting arrest.
