Morristown NJ police are looking into a string of daytime burglaries.
Police believe that several houses on Erskine Drive and James Street were possibly entered into illegally last month. Evidence suggests that the burglar or burglars entered some of the homes through unlocked doors, while forcing entry into the other homes.
According to police, nobody was in the homes when they were burglarized.
Morristown NJ police officers searched the nearby area shortly after the burglaries were reported, but the searches did not turn up any suspects.
Meanwhile, police have encouraged local residents to lock their doors and windows when leaving their homes.
In New Jersey, burglary is one of the more serious theft offenses. The crime is addressed by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2. Burglary is usually classified as a third degree felony. This means that if the burglar or burglars in these cases are caught, they could be sentenced to up to five (5) years in NJ State Prison.
Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to get in touch with the Morris County Police Department at 973-292-6737.
