The burglary spree reportedly occurred over the summer. According to authorities, a number of items were stolen from cars parked in Mendham Township.
Police departments in Mendham Township and Harding Township conducted a lengthy investigation before identifying the two suspects. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office also assisted with the investigation.
Warrants were issued for the arrest of the suspects after police searched one of the suspects’ apartments and allegedly discovered many of the items that had been taken from the cars.
The suspects eventually turned themselves in to police. Both suspects have been charged with receiving stolen property.
The penalties for receiving stolen property in New Jersey are determined by the value of the stolen items. If the suspects in this case are convicted of receiving stolen property valued at more than $500, they could each be sentenced to 3–5 years in NJ State Prison.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects posted bail and were released. They will have to return to Morris County Superior Court in Morristown at a later date.
